Silver Star is well known for hosting fun-filled activities – imagine racing down the mountain on a tube at Tube Town, skating on the natural outdoor skating pond, taking a snowmobile tour, snowshoe tour, dogsled tour, climbing wall, or nostalgic sleigh ride. If you just can’t get enough of the slopes during the day, try night skiing!
Silver Star’s ‘Focus on Family’, village comes alive every night of the week with fun, free events – carnival nights, fireworks extravaganzas, movie night, and live entertainment – you can even enjoy hot chocolate and marshmallows by a roaring outdoor bonfires and watch a traditional game of ice hockey.
Get ready for endless tubing fun in a safe, controlled environment. The tube lift lets you make run after run without hiking back to the top, or ever having to carry your tube sled. Truck-size inner tube sleds with safety handles are supplied.
Outdoor Skating is pure magic on Brewer's Pond, with a one-hectare natural skating surface, an outdoor fire and music. Skating passes and skate rentals available at the Tube Town Ticket Office.
New at the resort this year is Silver Star Snowmobile Safaris, providing outdoor fun for both adults and families. Two-hour afternoon tours depart daily at 4pm and 6:30pm. Guests enjoy Silver Star from a totally different perspective, travelling throughout the entire perimeter of the resort's skiable area which is close to 30Km! Guests enjoy a true mountainous tour - cruise down Silver Woods, around Putnam Creek and then climb back to the summit of Vance Creek - through a varied mix of open terrain and tree laden trails. These unique tours provide truly spectacular vistas that most skiers/boarders would never see, including Alder Point and even the twinkling lights of Vernon miles below.
The machines are brand new 2007 Artic Cat Panther 660 Touring sleds and are smokeless, quiet engines designed for up to two riders and come complete with all the cool options - even heated grips!
For the juniors, try a specially-built "motocross style course" where children ages 7-12 years can power their way on brand new Artic Cat machines. These sleds will no doubt guarantee endless fun and plenty of smiles! Drop by and visit the track - Silver Star Snowmobile Safaris is located in parking lot D, across from Tube Town.
