No forum love for Silver Star for the upcoming winter season ?
I'm locked in for 11 Feb -> 18 Feb
Never managed to get there when I was living in Canada but I heard great things about it. Heaps of good looking terrain, and a bit more off the radar than places like Big White.
Curious how you are getting there if you're only doing a one resort trip?
I'm at Sun Peaks first, hoping to get an inter-resort shuttle over
Short stay this year, only three weeks, 8th Jan to 27th, wife is retiring and heading off for a round the world trip when I get back. Will be my tenth visit to SS, I like it, something for everyone and suits me fine.
Last chance early bird lift passes...get in before 31/10/2016
We love it too.....oldest child thinks it's his fav hill so far.....and he has seen many. Girl child is still Apex driven.
Took advantage of the early bird family season pass, bargain. Tried most of the well known resorts in BC and Alberta as well as the USA. SS ticks all the boxes.
This would be a box of scrolls I assume.
Where you been Mark, haven't heard from you in ages, about time you came for a ski.
I've been around, no skiing in 2015 and only Perisher in 2016, BUT 3 weeks in US in Jan 2017.
Wanted to do Silver Star, but the Perisher Pass and Frequent Flyer flights to San Francisco sealed the deal. So we are skiing in the Lake Tahoe region. This time we will have all the kids with us, so you will probably hear us up in SS.
Only about 5 more years until we can just go and leave the kids to look after themselves, but who's counting.
Four weeks to go! Putnam and Silverwoods opened today. Very cold this week, -18c every day.
clips from there look amazing at the moment.
Yep, the annual stampede at the gate was on, not sure why, plenty of area to go to out the back.
Good friend that traveled to LL with me last week is a Vernon resident and longtime SS passholder. He skied the day after opening and said they shouldn't really have opened. He had to jump 5 open creek crossings in one run alone. Now since then it has snowed, got cold, and snowed again. They're back on track for a good Christmas season.
Good way to start the trip, 15cm overnight but a lot more than that over the back. Doubles on Putnam were the pick later after everything was chopped up. Looked like an official sick day in Vernon today, very busy.
Pretty empty over at Apex.....gorgeous snow all day
Snowing now so should be another good day tomorrow, less crowded too I think.
Son and granddaughters arrived today, girls highly excited. Should be an interesting couple of weeks. Glad it is warming up next week otherwise I doubt that I could get them out.
good to see you're enjoying yourself - you bast@rd!
not much snow this summer in Canberra!
No I hear that it is very hot there. Had a couple of good dumps and a few days with 5cm overnight, made for some nice skiing. Bit skinny on some of the steep runs, lots of rubbish and stumps exposed, probably about 60cm less snow than this time last year. Girls are going well, can handle the blue runs and have had them down groomed black runs, can't keep them out of the trees. I am staying out longer but getting less runs I think. Back holding up. Doing something wrong with posting photos can't get it to work.
They are all hidden from view.... it's a matter of pressing the little picture Icon and then inserting your address. I have fixed the first post but it is still deleted. I have posted it below. Hope that is okay.

Thanks Crystal, I think I am getting technically challenged. Must be old age.
