About Listing

Welcome to The Stellar J, our totally unique and special Silver Star vacation rental chalet!  The Stellar J is set in amoungst the towering, snow-laden evergreens of the cabin colony, secluded, but only a very short kick and glide from the village center.  Purchased and completely renovated and updated in 2011, the J consumates all that a special ski vacation should offer....  a true cki chalet experience, with all of the modern conveniences of a state-of-the-art facility.

Set in the heart of the first cabins of the mountain, the location of the Stellar J is without a doubt one of the finest on the mountain.  2 minutes walk through the quiet seclusion, and you open up onto the bustle of the center of the village, and all this quaint setting offers.  Turn right at the bottom of the hill, and 5 minutes walk takes you to Tube-Town, the skating pond, nightly bonfires and hot chocholate.

With such a central location, the J is truly ski in/ski out, with absolutely no need for your car or transport once you arrive.  The cabin is complete with a private hot tub, styeps outside on the private deck.  A heated entry way keeps all wet gear out of the cabin, and provides a fantastic beginning and ending to your snow day. 

Please browse the photos and description, and email with any and all question....  We believe if you choose to stay at the J for your SilverStar vacation, it will be one of the best choices of your holiday!!

This is our third stay at Stella J, we consider it our Canadian home away from home. The location is absolutely gorgeous set in trees away from the road. The cabin is set out thoughtfully and with charm, while also being comfortable. The owner Josh is warm and very responsive to communication. We are repeat guests and will be back again. The Burney family.

The location of the Stellar J is arguably the finest on the mountain.  Where else can you find this level of privacy, while having all of the amenities of the Village of Silver Star literally 1-5 minutes walk away? Walking distance to the village center is 2 minutes, Brewer's Pond for skating 4-5, with the same for Tube Town.  Ski-in access is off of the Comet 6-pack, Green, or Alpine Meadows chairs, with a small ski-way literally right in front of the cabin.  Ski-out can be through the village to the Comet or Green chairs, or with a very short walk the Alpine Meadows chair or down to the Silver Queen chair.

Part of the special ambiance of The Stellar J is the fact that the cabin itself is found mid-way between Pinnacles Lane and Silver Lode Lane.  A short 25 yd (25 M) walk from either access road brings you to the front door.  Parking is in Parking Lot A off of Silver Lode Lane.  At certain times, usually due to heavy snowfall, the walk in to the cabin might be somewhat challenging for those with mobility difficulties (elderly or very young).

Once you are up at the mountain, the need for your vehicle should be gone. The only time you should have to start it is for your trip home (and we hope you have to remove a large blanket of snow too!).

About Us

The Stellar J is the culmination of many years of enjoyment of Silver Star Mountain Resort by our family of 7.  Home for us is in the Fraser Valley of BC, and as such we have been fortunate to ski and ride most of the mountains of BC and the Alberta Rockies, as well as many hills in the US Pacific Northwest and Rocky Mountains.  Without a doubt, Silver Star is our favorite! With 3 skiers, and 4 boarders, Silver Star has terrain and difficulty that has suited us throughout our development as a ski/boarding family.  For most of the last 20 years we have taken our winter vacation here, and as such we have stayed in many different locations.  In 2010 we were fortunate enough to be able to purchase the Stellar J from the original owners... almost 50 years in the same family!  The last 6 months of 2010 were spent renovating this timeless wonder to what we think is one of the true gems of Silver Star.  Hopefully you will agree with us that the Stellar J is a compilation of all of the finest of what we have enjoyed in on-mountain lodging. 

Please use the guest book to let us know how you enjoyed your stay, and please let us know directly what you would like to see us change to make any future stay that much more enjoyable.

Happiest of Holidays,

The Waddington Family (Josh, Leslie, Zac, Leah, Kait, Daniel and Sam)
