    That's a bit drastic, another worth a try is under Long Johns, can't remember the name.

    Penelope,

    We are in Silver star at Chrissy for a couple of days. Just interested in the cost of the Sun Peaks season as we have a week there as well., just before. Is Silver Creek Lodge , Silver Creek Hotel.

    ?? The area at base of Silver Queen Chair has accom available. Once you get to top of Silver Queen yoi can ski around to comet six. How do you get back, via the village.
    Am I correct that the accom at the base of Silver queen is easily accessible?

    Hi @Ret-ro . I actually have no idea how accessible the base of Silver Queen is as I haven’t been to Silver Star before, so @KneeDeep , @Crystal , and @sly_karma may be better able to answer your questions. I have bought season passes for Sun Peaks as we are there for 15 days; this gives us 2 days of free skiing each at Silver Star. I believe there is a reciprocal arrangement for Silver Star season Pass holders too. You then get 25% off subsequent days. Silver Creek Lodge seemed reasonably priced (I booked through Travelplan). I will look up the cost of Sun Peaks season passes in Aussie dollars (which includes tax) and get back to you.

    Easy to get back to Creekside area via Attridge. In the morning access Silver Queen chair (opens earlier) head to Silverwoods for a few quiet runs then over to the Comet.

    Ok, looked up the price I paid for Sun Peaks season passes (early bird, ie before 30 June), if that’s what you were asking? $AUD1136.66 through Travelplan including tax. Available on-line through Sun Peaks Resort for $CAD1132.95 incl $53.95 tax until October. Go to the Silver Star website and plug in details for season passes to see what the cost is there. Again - reciprocal arrangements whereby season pass at one resort entitles you to two free days skiing at the other. You probably need to ski for longer than a week though to get your money’s worth from a season pass.

    The season pass is the best deal before end June when its $900ish plus taxes.

    You also get a free group lesson and 25% discounts at a few different stores.

    You need to ski every day for 2 weeks to make it worthwhile but if you add in the silverstar days that increases the value

    I buy my season pass next month, deal finishes 29th September. $589 plus 5% gst. There are some advantages for being a senior citizen. Includes skating, tube park, cross-country trails, etc.

    We are looking at doing both downhill and cross country. Is the My1Pass worth getting? Also, since the nordic area connects to Sovereign Lake, is that included?
    Thanks!

    Sovereign lake is extra, can be purchased as an add on when buying pass, I think? All pricing for next season not available yet. Season pass bought on early bird has a break even at 8 days. Check the benefits that are offered on SS website.

    I would say silver star is the cheaper of sunpeaks and silver star, accommodation and lift tickets were both cheaper for us by about 30%.

    I can recommend the supermarket in the Village Green complex in Vernon we shopped there last season and the fresh vegetables and meat were great. There's also a small store next to Long John's in the resort for any last minute things. Try and catch an ice hockey game if one is scheduled when you are there heaps of fun.

    SS has now added Apex to their reciprocal pass list. Two free days for season pass holder of either resort. Sly can come for a visit for free.
