If you are a beginner on skis and want a nice village and great place for you kids then Silver Star is for you.
If are not a beginner or are a snowboarder then there are much better places to spend your time.
Silver Star sucks if are a snowboarder because of the many flat areas. You will find yourself frequently having to unbuckle to go down a road or to a lift.
The trees have been thinned are poorly cut, there are dangerous unmarked gullies and dense brush. Roped off areas appears to be poorly planned.
The whole resort needs serious tree thinning.
I would recommend White Water in Nelson or Big White in Kelowna as better alternatives.
