About Pamela Darby

My husband and I built this house in 2009 and have lived there as our permanent residence since. This winter (2015-16) will be our first season renting our house to skiers while we rent a house in Vernon ourselves. I am a ER room nurse and my husband Steve is a Paramedic and also works fulltime as a ski-patroller, We have to boys 3 and 6 years old.

Pamela Darby purchased this house in 2009

Why Pamela Darby chose Vernon

We have lived at Silver Star since before we were married - first in a two bedroom condo and then when our family started to grow we built this duplex together with my parents.

We also rent my parents half of this duplex in the winter time for them (they live in Arizona for the winter and at Silver Star with us in the summer). As well we have and rent our 2 bedroom condo at Silver Star that we lived in before we built this house.

So with 2 young kids, 2 full time jobs and 3 rental properties we are keeping very busy!

What makes this house unique

Great views and ski-in and out, Quiet neighborhood where your kids can play outside all day toboganning - one of the only places at Silver Star to tobaggan.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a fantastic time here in Silver Star.The fresh snow on our last couple of days was a wonderful way to finish our stay. Coming back to your house at the end of a day skiing was a treat.The house is extremely comfortable and well appointed. The hot tub was a hit with the family.My wife loved the views and the peaceful surroundings.

The only negative I can think of would be the fry pan,kids said it was hard to wash up.

It has been an absolute pleasure to stay here.

Ski heaven with a view!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a week of spring skiing with fresh snow everyday. The accomodations were superb, with a view of the mountain, lake and Vernon below. The duplex was spacious, well stocked with luxury touches, beautifully decorated and perfect for our family vacation of three generations. Would we come back again? Absolutely!!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Pamela was lovely to deal with and responded to any questions promptly. The kitchen was well equipped with some basic cooking supplies provided (e.g. salt, pepper, spices, sugar, etc.). The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels. We appreciated the toys, books and games for the children. The condo was pet friendly and Pamela also provided a dog bed and treats. Great view of the valley from the hot tub. We totally enjoyed our stay in this lovely large condo.

Bickley Holiday Feb 25 to Mar 4 2017

Great Condo!

Had all the comforts of home, full kitchen, BBQ, Hot Tub.

Ski in ski out was ok for the kids, but a little much for the wife, but she was able to walk down to the ski run and walk down to the condo.

Only problem we had was I got the car stuck in the driveway. To much snow and the road and the driveway was not plowed when we came home from skiing Big White. Good place to get stuck! There were lots of shoves at the condo to get us out and parked in the driveway.

Every thing was as Pamela had laid out.

Good job!

Great Family vacation.

I would definitely go back.

Fantastic Ski Home!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in this complex two years in a row and loved it. There's nothing missing and it's a modern, clean, and comfortable home. While is a drive from the village, ski in/out is pretty simple, easy enough to come in for lunch. You can't beat the views either, especially from the hot tub! You won't be disappointed in this fantastic place.

Great Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in Silverstar for 10 days and the house was fantastic. Location for ski in ski out was perfect and so convenient that we came back for lunch each day. The house was more than comfortable and clean everyone especially liked the hot tub and the Apple TV set up! Pamela and Steve were very helpful and keep the place in great condition.

we would definitely return to this house in a heartbeat and would recommend to other families who are interested in staying at Silverstar.

Car: recommended

Located on a newly developed sub-division at Silver Star Mountain Resort called 'The Ridge'. Great location with amazing views and ski-in/ski-out access. Located at the bottom of the 'Attridge' ski runs if you look at Silver Star's map (right at the bottom of Split Decision). Cross country ski trails are best accessed from the village.

Close to the village with a 2 minute car ride or 20 minute walk on groomed ski ways. Silver Star offers Tube Town, ice skating on the pond, shopping, gym, indoor rock climbing, snowmobile tours, yoga, a spa, restaurants, and so much more.
