Silver Star is a serious contender as the best all-around ski resort to visit in BC. It features an abundance of terrain and is serviced by a well-developed lift system. Most importantly, the snow consistently comes early and often here. You're likely to find great conditions at any point of Silver Star's 5 month winter season.

The Silver Star village looks up to the top of the Front Side of the mountain. This side has the most diversity of terrain on it, including a sizable park. There are 3 quads and a high speed "six-pack" chair lift serving the area. In the far distance you might notice the epic Monashee Mountain Range. Unfortunately that is the only high alpine you will see at Silver Star. The inbounds area seems to cover all of the best terrain on the mountain, and all of it is below the tree line.

There is still some gnar here, however. The entire back side of the mountain is north-facing and steep. If you're unlucky and don't find any powder stashes there, you should at the very least be shredding some nice, light snow that's just slightly carved up.

If you're looking for a ski resort in BC that is a complete package, you should seriously consider Silver Star.

Sunshine Village is a big mountain resort close to Calgary and Banff. It's made up of several mountains if you want to get specific, but the entire ski area is accessed by one lift at the base lodge. Fortunately this lift is the Gondola, and is the fastest lift and has the highest capacity, so the base area doesn't get too bottlenecked with the crowds. [ Read More ]
Hemlock Valley Resort is located in the Fraser Valley, close to Chilliwack, Mission and Abbotsford. The road up is gnarly but once you make it to the lodge it's a nice little area. Four lifts service the ski area which is 121 hectares with a 400m vertical drop. [ Read More ]
This mountain in South Eastern B.C. gets a ton of snow and is conveniently located just far enough away from any major population to keep it fairly low key. If you have seen shots of people riding through the snow and not on top of it they were probably taken here as Fernie gets some of the lightest snow around. [ Read More ]
