Silver Star has amazing terrain, with an excellent mix of long groomers on the backside and trees on the front side. Feel on the mountain is more of a local, small town vibe in comparison to other nearby hills that attract more tourists and families.... More

Silver Star is a great mountain. They get nice little powder for most of the ski season. I really like the selection of black diamond runs in close proximity to each other on the back side of the mountain. The village also has a very unique feel as all the building are painted in... More
