We went to Silverstar after spending two days downhill skiing at Big White. This turned out to be a wonderful experience all around and left us wishing we had started with Silverstar! The dry Canadian powder was superb. We spent the first afternoon skiing with a resort "snow host" who was absolutely a great fit for our intermediate level skiing family from Texas. My 12 year old daughter made tremendous strides in her skiing on the runs our host selected for us. My husband opted to cross-country ski and thoroughly enjoyed his day. His rental was fast. My brother, my daughter and I came back for a second day of downhill skiing at Silverstar. To sum the resort up, great snow, nice long runs, short lift lines, friendly staff and the best part was the temps in the 20 degree F range. We will definitely go back!
