Silver Star is located in the Okanagan Valley, 22 km (12 miles) northeast of Vernon in BC, Canada. Silver Star’s Victorian-style village looks like a bold acrylic painting done up in the vivid colours of a child’s paint box. Open both winter and summer, with restaurants and shops owned by people who live and work there, Silver Star feels more like a community than a resort. Champagne powder and awesome terrain draw people in winter for cross-country skiing, downhill skiing and snowboarding, and along with a host of family fun activities like snowshoeing, tubing, skating and horse-drawn sleigh rides. In summer, that same terrain attracts mountain bikers to the Silver Star Bike Park, while others come for the wildflower show along hiking trails.
