Silver Star Mountain chalet description

If you are looking for a ski vacation for multiple families, a work retreat, wedding, ski teams, or bringing many friends together, you've found the perfect chalet. The 'Great Escape' is situated at the very top of the Silver Queen chairlift in the area referred to locally as 'The Knoll'. We purchased this house 13 years ago due to its perfect location for all levels and ages of skiers, proximity to skating, tubing, and easy access to cross country ski trails. It is the perfect winter holiday location. There is no driving or even walking involved to ski in or out from this chalet (see photos).

The 4300 sq ft chalet is 3 levels. The upper level is comprised of a kitchen, dining area, hot tub, sauna, steam shower, bathroom, ski locker, boot room, and two living rooms. The large harvest dining table can sit 18. The mid-floor has 4 bedrooms each with private bathroom, bath and shower. One room with a Queen bed, one room with a double bed, one room with two sets of bunk beds, and one room with a double bed with a bunk above it and a bunk. The bottom floor has one room with two double beds and an open basement with two bunk beds, There is room for 21 people in beds in the house. In addition there are four hide-a-bed couches, two in the basement, two in the upper floor living rooms for a total maximum sleeping capacity of 29.

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About: This chalet is owned by a family that believes skiing is an activity that brings family and friends together. We have been skiing at Silver Star on and off for 35 years and consistently for the last 17. Family gatherings usually involve a minimum of 16 people and four families.

                      Why Silver Star Mountain:
                      After renting at Silver Star for several years, we bought this place thirteen years ago as we thought it was best located and designed chalet on the mountain for multiple families or large groups. Every guest that visits is astounded by the perfection of this place to enable a true winter vacation. Once you are here, you don't need your car again until you leave.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                      The best feature is that there is something for everyone within seconds from the door. If you are a beginner skier, you are 5 seconds from the top of the run, if you are a young family, you can easily switch off parenting obligations, you can cross country ski from the door, downhill ski, snowshoe or skate, or go tubing all within minutes from the chalet.
