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.

The resort itself is located in the Kananaskis Region of Alberta, which is about 25 km east of the B.C./Alberta border and in the most easterly part of the Rocky Mountains. This location at the edge of the Rockies provides Fortress with quite a bit ... [ 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 ]
Grouse mountain is front and center in the Vancouver mountain scene and has something for everyone. This is good if you are trying to attract as many visitors as you can to a mountain, but not so good if you are looking to avoid crowds and get some fresh tracks. The one thing that sets Grouse apart from the other two North Shore mountains is that you do not have to drive up a mountain road to rea... [ Read More ]
