Silver Star is known for its varied terrain and lots of opportunities to experience the famous Canadian champagne powder. Averaging 7 meters of snow per season, there is enough for the whole season for you to explore 132 different runs, that 7 lifts will give you access to. With your lift pass, you will get access to four different mountains. If you’re an experienced skier or boarder, you should head towards The Vance Creek. It offers a variety of blue and green slopes. And if this isn’t challenging enough for you then head to The Putnam Creek where the main part of the slopes is black. If you’re searching for an off-piste ski holiday, Putnam Creek is also the place to go hunting for untouched champagne powder.

But, if you prefer to spice up your ski holiday in Silverstar with freestyle skiing, there is a terrain park with lots of diversity depending on your level. Have you ever wanted to try night skiing? Silver Star offers you this opportunity Friday and Saturday night.
