Our recently purchased A framed ski chalet, now known as The Maple Leaf Chalet, has many many years of familiarity on Silver Star Mountain. Being one of the original cabins in the mature cabin colony, we are excited to carry on the tradition of family fun and excitement in our new ski cabin. Our family, Rick, Mandy, Makenna and Drew, all born and raised in the Vernon area, have had the privillage of skiing and riding Silver Star Mountain our whole lives. We purchased The Maple Leaf Chalet for our young family to be able to enjoy the benefits and activities of Silver Star. Nothing compares to the fun we expect to continue to have and hope to pass on to our future guests.
Thank you for visiting our site and we look forward to welcoming you to our unique ski cabin, The Maple Leaf Chalet.

Great original Silver Star cabin

Hugely enjoyed our stay at this cabin. The A frame is exceptional cosy and provides great amenities. The location is fantastic being so close to the restaurants, lifts etc. Communications with the owner were very personal and direct which I appreciated. I'll be back for ski season! PS...the downhill mtb trails at Silver Star are the best I've experienced (and I live at Whistler). Thanks!View Full Review
