For those who want a rest from downhill skiing or snowboarding, there are a multitude of other Silver Star activities.

Family Activities Silver Star Mountain

There are many activities specifically targeted to families at the Silver Star Mountain Resort. There are fun, free events such as carnival nights, fireworks, movies, bonfires and live entertainment. The weekly calendar of events may also include games nights, face painting, or snow sculpture competitions.

Tube Town is popular with families – it’s good cheap (or free) fun! This tubing area is only a short walk from the centre of Silver Star and features fast tube lifts so you don’t have to waste energy walking up the hill.

Other Silver Star activities for families include outdoor ice skating (parents can stand around the outdoor fire pit in an attempt to keep warm), rides on mini snowmobiles, or ten pin bowling at Pinheads Bowling.

There are also sleigh rides that meander around some forest trails to the Wild Horseman’s Cabin where you can sip on a mug of coca or hot apple cider.

Another option is to head into Vernon to watch the Vernon Vipers hockey team. The resort organises a bus to go into Vernon when a game is on.

Some of the other things to do in Silver Star that are outlined below are also appropriate for kids and families.

Cross Country Skiing

Cross country skiing at Silver Star is amazing and there are 100km plus of Nordic skiing trails. The trails are of varying difficulty and are clearly marked so you can also use them at night time. Trail access is included if you have a lift pass, otherwise trail fees apply.

Snowshoe Tours

If you don’t want to DIY with regards to snowshoeing you can head out on a guided snowshoe safari (snowshoe rentals can be included). In addition to a dinner tour, the other option is to snowshoe to a cabin to partake in a chocolate fondue extravaganza. After you’ve gorged yourself and you’ve headed into a post-chocolate coma, you don’t have to snowshoe back and can get a sleigh ride back to the village instead.

Fat Biking

Silver Star has 15km of dedicated fat biking trails and a fleet of rental bikes are available.

Adventure Activities Silver Star

Whilst the kids can go on the mini snowmobiles, grown-ups can go snowmobiling on “real” snowmobiles and experience the Silver Star backcountry on specific tours.

If you’ve got excess energy to burn, the other option is to go indoor rock climbing.

Silver Star Day Spa

If you’re in need of some complete R&R, head to the Elevate day spa in the village for some pampering.
