Silver Start has two ski areas – Vance Creek and the newer Putnam Creek. The resort has an 1890s style base village and operates what was the longest detachable quad in Canada. Silver Star has tripled in size in the past decade and is continuing to expand now under joint ownership with neighboring Big White. It doesn’t bother much with snow making because its totally unnecessary – getting so much of the natural stuff. Silver Star is also a world renowned early-season cross country ski centre, particularly popular with Canadian and US cross-country and biathlon teams.
