How to Have a Great Time Skiing at Silver Star

I was lucky to spend three fabulous days skiing at Silver Star Mountain Resort. I'd heard about the ski resort for years; I'd seen all the colourful photos of the quaint "village" but it wasn't until friends rented a condo for a month on the ski hill that John and I finally made it here.

Fernie Alpine Resort is located five kilometres from the town of Fernie in the Lizard Range of the Canadian Rockies. The town sits in southern British Columbia in the Elk Valley of the…

What’s Better? Lake Louise or Sunshine Village for Skiing

Last weekend I skied two of the three downhill ski resorts in Banff National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) - Lake Louise one day and Sunshine Village the next. It had been over 30 years since I'd last skied at either of them - so it felt like the first time all over again.
