Experience up to 3.5 times more skiing with SilverStar Mountain Resort’s new Gondola

September 6, 2018 Visit USA No Comments Email Email

Canada’s most family-friendly ski destination, SilverStar Mountain Resort, has the solution for visitors eager to maximise their time skiing the slopes. Situated in the Okanagan Valley, SilverStar is now home to a new 8-seater Gondola, providing a truly unique experience for guests.

Offering sweeping views as it ascends the mountain, thanks to the roomy capacity of the Gondola which shortens lift queues, plus offers a much faster trip, the Gondola increases the amount of front slopes skiing time by up to 3.5 times more than the resort’s previous chairlift. Further, it allows guests to move safely around the mountain with direct access to the top, and makes night skiing all the more enjoyable with a warmer ride up.

Voted “Best Family Ski Resort in Canada 2018”“Best Ski Resort in Canada 2017” and “Best Family Resort 2017” (Okanagan Life Magazine & Holidays with Kids Magazine) as well as numerous other awards, SilverStar prides itself on its state-of-the-art facilities and activities for families.

Truly the most ski-in/ski-out mid-mountain village in Canada, SilverStar’s layout is designed for the comfort and ease of guests. All the resort accommodation is situated so you can spend the day enjoying the slopes, and simply ski down to your front door at the end of the day.

With an average 7 metres+ annually of ‘Okanagan-Champagne Powder’, the resort boasts 100% natural snow each ski season – an impressive feat given it is the third biggest skiable region in British Columbia after Whistler and Sun Peaks.

Varied terrain guarantees a skiing adventure suitable for all ages and abilities. Beginners can feel safe navigating the front side of the slopes, while the more adventurous skiers can explore steep and deep terrain on the back side of the mountain. SilverStar is also home to the biggest daily-groomed Cross-Country tracks in Canada. 

SilverStar’s Snowsports School offers programs for adults wanting to improve their skiing with highly skilled instructors leading private and group classes, plus a variety of kid’s ski and snowboard programs and other winter activities that will be sure to tire little ones out. The new Gondola is a welcomed addition to the children’s programs, providing better ski school access by allowing instructors to transport seven children up the mountain at a time, all safely enclosed within the Gondola.

The Snowsports School also includes Academy Programs – a comprehensive on-snow skills development series offered exclusively at SilverStar Mountain Resort. These training programs offer coaching at the highest level, and are designed for individuals seeking excellence and improved performance in a variety of alpine disciplines.

And for those who love an alternate snow sport adventure, SilverStar is home to a fun Adventure Park, complete with an ice-skating rink, tube town, fat bike tracks, mini-snowmobiling plus the only tenpin bowling available at any ski resort in the Okanagan.

And once you step off the slopes for a well-earned rest, SilverStar’s signature colourful winter wonderland village is bursting with boutique restaurants, cafes, bars, retail and grocery shops, offering something for travellers of all tastes.

Jane CannSilverStar Mountain Resort’s Chief Executive Officer says: “With the promise of a huge ski season in Canada we are excited to announce the arrival of SilverStar’s new Gondola to our visitors. The smooth, fast efficiency of the Gondola earmarks it as the most innovative ski in/ski out mid-mountain resort in Canada, and ensures we can provide a truly relaxing, user friendly and indulgent ski holiday for our guests.

“Experience the finest natural snow and varied terrain, immerse yourself in the lively, friendly warmth of our village and partake in activities for the whole family – SilverStar has so much to offer all age groups and skiing abilities. 

“And here’s a scoop! Only the locals know that during February and March, when the resort quietens down that the snow is actually at its peak with a season-long strong base but still plenty of fresh powder falling!”

And with the Canadian exchange rate much friendlier than the U.S, and SilverStar’s lift-tickets priced better than most of the big ski resorts – a Canadian ski adventure has never been more affordable.

But don’t just take our word for it – you can read SilverStar Mountain Resort’s fantastic TripAdvisor reviews here.
