Mini Snowmobiles 

The mini snowmobile track is a great way to enjoy the snow and fresh air while having fun with your kids. The sleds are Arctic Cat FireCat F120s, which are designed for children ages six to 12. They are easy to control and the little ones will love navigating around the course. It's fun to start the day here before taking your family on a larger adventure, like skiing or boarding down the slopes!

The tube park brings out the kid in everyone! Slide down the tracks without having to hike back to the top, or ever having to carry your tube. Include tubing on your to-do list for a great time spent together, especially if you have the My1Pass as tubing is one of the seven activities it unlocks!

Paradise Camp Dining Experience

Eating together as a family is an important part of every vacation. Enjoy an adventurous twist to your meal with the Paradise Camp Dining Experience, featuring a tour on a Snow Cat. Take the entire family on a trip under the stars and through the snow to Paradise Camp. Located on the backside of the mountain, you will enjoy a unique dining experience with a chef-prepared menu.

Hockey Games

Another family-friendly activity at SilverStar is cheering on their local hockey team — the six-time national champion Vernon Vipers. Grab the bus that takes you from the village directly to the match and enjoy watching a good ol’ hockey game together!

Snow School

The relaxed environment at SilverStar makes lessons fun for everyone! Sign the family up for a couple of hours of Snow School. A group or private lesson is a perfect addition to your trip, particularly if you have children who are still learning how to ski. The entire group can ramp up their skill levels before exploring the terrain together.
