We celebrated our first Christmas in Canada at the beautiful ski resort of Silverstar which is located around 400 km east of Vancouver. It really was a magical place to spend our first white Christmas away from home and while the temperatures were FREEZING (most days it was down to -25 while we were skiing) it was one of the best holidays we have had! This also happened to be our first skiing holiday as we only took up skiing since moving to Canada so the experience was one to cherish! If you are looking to travel to Canada to ski I would definitely recommend going to Silverstar where the crowds are much smaller than the more known resorts like Whistler and cost to ski is much less. It really was ski up to most chair lifts and straight on and as you can see from the photos at the end of the post some of the runs at times I had all to myself! We cant wait to go back again next winter break!
