Silver Star has four distinct seasons:
Winter begins in November with world famous early season Nordic skiing. Downhill usually opens the end of November. Exact opening dates are subject to weather conditions and are usually announced in the Fall.
Spring is from early April until mid-June. Spring is one of our peaceful seasons. Most services in the village close during the spring season and it is very quiet on the mountain. A lovely time to enjoy some time alone or with someone special!
Summer is considered mid-June until September long weekend at Silver Star Mountain. This is when you can hike, downhill or cross country bike and even use the Gondola. If the weather is great, bonus weekends are announced and you can bike and hike right into mid-September.
Fall is from mid-September until the middle of November – shoulder season with very limited services available on the hill. Great time to enjoy some quiet time and ideal for a family get together for the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend.
Silver Star Stays is a team of 5 working from offices across Canada and around the world – with most of us right here on Silver Star Mountain or in the beautiful Okanagan.
Lindsay is the owner, operator and mountain host of Silver Star Stays. She lives right on Silver Star Mountain with her pooch, Stella. She and Stella love the outdoors and love Silver Star’s mountain bike park and many hiking trails in the summer. In the Winter, she enjoys taking an afternoon break in the snow to enjoy all the fresh powder. Silver Star’s proximity to Vernon is also incredible with all the wineries and lakes being a quick drive away.
Silver Star is a place I can luckily call home and I love sharing with our new and returning guests.
Diana and Peter were the founding owners of Silver Star Stays. They have owned condos at Silver Star since 2001 and have lived on the mountain full time during the winter season for the past 10 years, after selling their internet travel agency in Abbotsford, BC. For 7 of those years during the other 6 non-winter months, they sailed across the South Pacific from Vancouver to Australia. After selling their boat, they now enjoy being on terra firma with their kids and their five grandchildren. They love Silver Star in both the winter and the summer and they especially enjoy all our first time guests who have discovered our secret ‘gem’ of a mountain and keep coming back again and again.
