It’s all natural here. Uncrowded slopes and natural terrain. You’ll find what you are looking for, regardless of your ability. Do your skiing or riding across over 3,000 acres, from groomed cruisers to the Putnam Creek steeps and into the silver Woods glades. Silver Star averages more than 700 cm of snow annually (23 feet) so this ensures there is plenty of fresh powder and groomed runs for you every day. The South-facing Vance Creek area features gentle slopes and expertly groomed cruisers, serviced by the Comet Express six-pack chairlift. Once you have warmed up, try Putnam Creek, renowned for its deep powder, challenging black and double black diamond terrain and winch groomed slopes. Silver Star also has a terrain park, and it is rated one of the best in western Canada…TELUS Park.
