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.

Lake Louise serves up the most terrain in the Canadian Rockies and from time to time gets some good dumps of snow as well. This is where most people from Calgary come to shred along with many of the people staying in Banff, so it can get busy on the weekends. The mountain has three different areas to choose from, all offering up something different, allowing you to escape the crowds even on the b... [ Read More ]
