3/12/2008--SIlver Star Mountain, British Columbia, Canada..Early monring at the Silver Star Mountain Resort, British Columbia with most of its buildings designed in the Victorian Era style. The mile-high resort is surrounded by British Columbia provincial park lands and its small pedestrian-only village (shown here) nestles mid-mountain. Silver Star Mountain lies in the interior of British Columbia amidst mountain ranges, valleys and lakes..In winter, the mountain resort offers 115 ski and snowboard trails including thirteen double black diamond runs for the more adventurous or teenaged members of the family. The summer hosts a smaller crowd, with activities for the mountain biker, nature lover, and golf is nearby...In the last six years, Silver Star has begun to transform from sleepy provincial ski area to world class boutique family resort. In 2002, the Schumann family bought the resort, and have invested $25M in five new chair lifts and other infrastructure. Now, builders are using higher quality fit and finish on new luxury condominium complexes, home prices are going up, and some winter weekends are selling out...©2008 Stuart Isett. All rights reserved
