British Columbia Magazine also named SilverStar No. 1 on the Cool List of Top Places to XC Ski in B.C.

Business Insider ranked SilverStar Mountain the ninth least expensive resort to visit in North America.

“It’s humbling to have people throughout the Okanagan, and across North America, continue to recognize us for the incredible village, terrain and conditions we offer to both Alpine and Nordic skiers from around the world,” said Ian Jenkins, director of sales and marketing for the resort. “Not everyone knows about us, but it usually only takes one visit to realize how special this place is and become a loyal guest.”
