Silver Star Resort

Lots of resorts claim to offer a true “ski-in, ski-out” experience, but Silver Star actually delivers on that. No long walks, no bus rides or shuttles. Boot up in your hotel room, and you’ll be on a chairlift in minutes. That’s possible because Silver Star’s “base area” or village isn’t located at the bottom of the lifts, instead, it’s mid-mountain, so it’s easy and convenient to start on top of your first run in the morning without even riding a chairlift. And, there’s less traversing and fewer cat tracks required to get to a lift, since Silver Star has 12 different lifts, including a gondola and a six-person chair.

But ease of access isn’t the only thing that makes Silver Star stand out. It’s also home to excellent skiing. With 132 designated trails, and 10% of their terrain marked “extreme” even the most seasoned and jaded skiers will find something here to push their limits. And for younger skiers, fear not, there are plenty of easy beginner and intermediate groomed runs, as well as some great terrain parks. Silver Star is one of those resorts where once you’ve visited it’s very hard to leave. It’s just so easy to fall in love, and James Niehues’s Silver Star ski map illustrates so much of what makes this mountain special.
