So we are now waiting at Vancouver Airport for our flight home. True to form, our Air Canada flight to Sydney has been delayed by 50 minutes, jeopardising our connection to Canberra. Oh well ... Time to reflect on our trip. Probably the best accommodation was at Silver Star. Silver Creek accommodation rocked: big room with a full sized kitchen, ski-in and out, and plenty of room for 3 of us (or even 4 had there been an added extra). Enjoyed what we saw of Silver Star, although our ability to explore was hampered by the extreme cold (-26 for 2 days, -18 for our last day). A very nice skating pond, and free tubing with your lift ticket. The village isn’t quite as pleasant as Sun Peaks, but is very picturesque none-the-less. Having a season pass at Sun Peaks meant we received 2 free days of skiing at Silver Star, then 25% off any further days. Reciprocal arrangements apply. I hired a car from Kelowna Airport through Airport Car Rentals (a broker who sourced the vehicle through Avis). Easy-peasy with no attempt to upgrade you to another type of car. The RAV4 handled the conditions well and seated 3 comfortably with 1 double ski bag and 3 large cases. Relatively easy 3 hour drive from Silver Star to Sun Peaks, where we stayed the first 8 nights at Coast Sundance before moving to the superior option of Hearthstone Lodge. More on these in the Canada Accommodation thread. Much preferred the latter. Sun Peaks delivered with snow quality, lots of snow, and a great village atmosphere. I can’t wait to return! A few pics of Sun Peaks; (Below pic with the Astros) Love Canada. Lovely wine too; had a couple of glasses of the Jackson Triggs VQA Reserve Chardonnay tonight; very tasty!
