I have been to Silver Star many times over. I love the location, the powder, the people, the Village, and everything. It is a great mountain, with great instructors and staff. I used to ski, but now I can snowboard well after just three lessons, with reasonable prices. The people who work at the lifts are very friendly, and the staff don't ever seem to mind when you ask a question. Everything about the Star is fabulous. The mountain is very family oriented, but is great for all types of people. I am definetly going back, and it is my favourite mountain I have been to.
