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. Lindsay purchased Silver Star Stays from the previous owners, Diana Young and Peter Bruckmann in the fall of 2019 and hasn’t looked back. Silverstar is the best place to work and play! Lindsay and Stella love the outdoors and they get the best of all seasons on the mountain. In the summer, Lindsay spends time riding Silver Star’s Mountain Bike Park and walking the beautiful hiking trails. In the Winter, Lindsay enjoys taking an afternoon break in the snow to enjoy all the fresh powder whether it be skiing and snowshoeing.
When not on the mountain, Lindsay enjoys the incredible things to do in the Okanagan whether it be enjoying the lakes, wineries and more!
The Happy Booker
Diana and Peter were the founding owners of Silver Star Stays. In September 2018, Lindsay Brennan bought the company and took over the helm after 18 months of mentorship and training.
Diana and Peter have owned two condos at Silver Star since 2001 and have lived on the mountain during the winter season for the past 10 years. This makes them not only team members but owner clients, renting out both their condos full time through Silver Star Stays.
They have continued to work with Silver Star Stays and during the winter months are based out of their overseas Bali, Indonesian office. Diana loves booking our guests from around the world. With the time difference in Bali being the same as Australia and New Zealand she is able to look after our international guests during the “night shift”. This means that during the winter hours Silver Star Stays is open 7 days a week – 15 hours per day. Of course, the online website is open 24/7 for our guests to book.
Silver Star remains their home base and Diana enjoys nothing more than sharing this gem of a mountain (and hot chocolate with mini marshmallows) with their six grandkids in both winter and summer.
Chief Financial Officer
Peter looks after the financial end of the business and especially enjoys sending the owners their monthly revenue earnings.
When Peter & Diana lived on the mountain during the winter season, during the other 6 months, they sailed across the South Pacific from Vancouver to Australia. After 7 wonderful years of this dual lifestyle, they sold their boat to spend more time with their growing grandchildren.
They now enjoy being on terra firma for six months of the year and continue to work for Silver Star Stays from both B.C. in the summer and Bali in the winter. (We also consider Lindsay part of our family)
Peter & Diana have deep bonds with our owner clients and our large repeat guest clientele.
Peter loves skiing, skating, tubing, hiking and biking with his grandchildren (and endless rides up and down on the gondola with our youngest one).
Administrative and Sales Assistant
Teresa moved to Coldstream with her family four years ago because they all wanted to be closer to a ski hill and Silver Star did not disappoint!! Silver Star is like a second home to Teresa and her family in the winter and in the summer!! Her children are both involved with the Silver Star Freestyle Club, so in the winter, she is either found downhill skiing or enjoying the many nordic trails by snowshoe or cross country skiing. In the summer, she can be found ripping down the mountain on her mountain bike with her family or enjoying the multiple cross country trails by bike or foot. Teresa just loves being outdoors and Silver Star has so much to offer.
The best part about joining this team is that I get to share the love of Silver Star with all the new and returning guests, and also working with an amazing group of people who also love it!
Tara lives and works out of Toronto, Ontario with her husband, Mark and son, Kieran. (Tara is also Peter and Diana’s daughter making this a true family business) She is Silver Star Stays incredible accounting team, resident excel sheet and form expert. Tara is an avid Toronto Maple Leafs fan. Not a fan of winter, Tara loves hiking Silver Star Mountain in the summer and enjoying the fresh air.
