Silver Star is a place where memorable holidays happen all year round. The resort offers stunning skiing, breathtaking scenery, colourful Victorian architecture, wonderful curiousity shops and restaurants, and fantastic people - people who love to call Silver Star "my mountain". By day, there's an abundance of mountain to explore; by night, there's plenty of après-ski entertainment for little kids, teenagers and the young at heart. Blanketed annually by 23 feet of dry, feather-light champagne powder, Silver Star is a huge mountain with three distinct faces and 115 runs, bowls and gladed areas.
