Skiers and snowboarders can't resist the champagne powder at Silver Star Mountain Resort, 22km/13mi northeast of Vernon.
From late November through mid-April, conditions are reliable with loads of mountain sunshine and annual snowfall averaging 700cm/23ft.
Silver Star Terrain
Descend glades, glide gentle slopes or attack deep powder and moguls. The 1,240ha/3,065ac of skiable terrain at Silver Star Mountain Resort includes 115 marked downhill trails totalling 93km/58mi. The longest run is 8km/5mi and the maximum vertical is 760m/2,500ft.
With 10 lifts, including the Six Pack Express and four quad chairs, the mountain doesn't feel crowded and skiers spend their time on the slopes, not in line-ups. There's also night skiing on Fridays and Saturday, which usually lasts until the end of March.
