About Silver Star
Centrally located in the heart of BC's Okanagan Valley rests Silver Star Mountain in the Monashee Mountain Range. The vibrant village is a beacon for adventure in the mountains and the people are its heart and soul. Big ideas and boundless energy inspired by the “Silver Queen’’ mine and first ski turns in the early 1930s. Nearly a century later, the same spirit is championing a thriving destination resort on the cusp of its next chapter.
New residents are moving to the area and the return of international travel signals an era of great opportunity for Silver Star. With eyes on the future and a commitment to honouring the resort’s roots, the community banded together to form the Silver Star Resort Association to grow the local tourism economy and create a lasting legacy.
Make it a Silver Star Summer
Silver Star may very well be the Okanagan’s best kept mountain secret with something for everyone in this natural playground. Get pumped up biking Canada’s second largest bike park, tackle the 35km XC bike trail- Beowolf, named after a legendary dragon-slaying Scandinavian warrior. Hike and sightsee the magical Des Scheumann Summit express gondola and take some time to explore something entirely unique - the “gnome roam” a mini-mystical world that resides amongst the mountain trails.
Silver Star offers more than just mountain excitement. The vibrant resort town celebrates sports, arts, community, food, wine, and music through featured festivals year round. Committed to growing the culinary scene, there’s an exciting reimagined wine festival this August set to showcase the best food and wine of the region. And, the perfect warm up to Oktoberfest - an inaugural craft beer and cider festival.
