The Firelight Lodge is one of the newest properties at Silver Star and is convenient to lots of activities and one of the best runs for learning to ski at the Silver Queen Chair. We had a two bedroom premium unit on the third floor and it was a great layout. Two full bathrooms came in very handy with two teenagers along for the fun. There was a Queen bunk with a single on top, a pull-out Queen and a King size bed. Lots of room! It was equipped with a kitchen, loads of storage and even dryers for our gloves and boots. The Kitchen was fully stocked with a microwave, large fridge/freezer, stove and oven, and dishwasher. All of the kitchen appliances, utensils, dishes and pots needed were readily available. The bathrooms were really nice. The one in the room with the King size bed had a King size tub, which was really nice to relax in at the end of a day skiing. The room also advertised a computer, however the mouse was missing, so we were not able to use it. When we called to report it to the front desk, they were very pleasant, but did not follow-up with us to advise that they were not able to locate a mouse for the computer. We had to call about six times and received a different excuse each time. We finally gave up. Other than that experience, which was minor, the Firelight Lodge was fantastic. It was a short walk to the tube runs in the evening. The price of tubing was included with the lift ticket, so we could go for a couple of runs and not worry about having to get our moneys worth out of tubing. Also, there's a bowling alley Pinheads downstairs, which was a lot of fun and served great food. There was easy skiing down to the Silver Queen Chair for a few easy runs in the morning, but it was a bit of a hike across the parking lot from the village to the Firelight lodge at the end of the day. It wasn't until the last day that we discovered a run from the Comet Chair, which would bring us back to the Firelight Lodge. This would be a good thing for the front desk to include in their information package, which contained a lot of other information about the village and amenities. The building has one hot tub to share amongst its guests. We were able to find lots of occasions where there was no one in it and we could sit back and relax, enjoying the surroundings. The pond was closed for skating, when we arrived, as the weather had been really warm. This was disappointing, but there was no shortage of things to do at Silver Star. All in all, this was a great place to stay and we'd definitely return.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the south side of the building overlooking the pond, as otherwise you would have a view of the parking lot.

We spent the last weekend at the Firelight Lodge to attend a wedding. Thge rooms were spacious and had small kitchenettes. One oddity was they dfid not have any closet space anywhere - not even a rod to hang your clothes. Perhaps it was work underway but it was still odd.
We also did not get any room servicing during our two nights.
Perhaps these were just oversights and we would certainly give it another try.

We spent a week here after two weeks in Sun Peaks and were impressed by the superior quality of accommodation. Bright modern apartments with a spacious and well appointed kitchen. Ski out was easy down to the Silver Queen chair but in was a little more difficult with a walk across the main carpark from the village, or down from Attridge Chair.

Watching the skaters on the pond each night was a treat. Being away from the village centre was no real hassle as the walk was only 3 or 4 minutes.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking Brewers Pond have the better view than over the car park.

Booked Firelight Lodge based on the fact that it is one of the newest properties at Silver Star. We had a studio unit on the first floor. It was equipped with basic kitchenette amenities including microwave, mini fridge, kettle, coffee maker, toaster, as well as utensils and dishes for 2 people and this was adequate for our needs. Bed was comfortable and there were 6 pillows on the King bed with white comforter and linen. We found the room to be dark at night, except for a bright blue flourescent light on the mini-fridge which we covered with a towel. Soundproofing is the only problem. There was also a "knocking' sound coming from one of the appliances or pipes.
We used the communal hot tub, but we were always there alone. Some of the larger units have private hot tubs on the balcony. We would put on our skis at the exit door by the ski lockers and it was a short distance to a small chair lift where we could then access the mountain. At the end of the ski day we were able to ski back to the parking lot of the hotel. The staff was young and friendly and responded quickly to any need for information or for items for the room.
As of this year, the ski tickets gives you access to skating, snowshoe trails, nordic trails and tubing. We rented snowshoes one afternoon and loved the well marked trails through the mountains. We also went tubing.
The village was very quiet the week we were there . No lift lines at all. Going out with a "mountain host" for a free tour is an excellent way to get to know the mountain.
We will definitely return to Silver Star, as it is by far one of the easiest hills to reach from the airport (one hour away by shuttle) and we will certainly book again at the Firelight Lodge for value and quality.

We spent a fabulous week at Silver Star and slept 6 nights in a quiet private accomodation. We travel every year to a different BC ski resort for our winter family holidays and Silver Star offered us by far the best experience to our entire family.

We decided to extend our stay by one night and book a two bedroom appartement at The Fire Light Lodge. It is a new accomodation at Silverstar located not far away from the village. It is not quite a ski in ski out hotel but it is still centrally located.

The room was very spacious, modern design with nice furniture and appliances. The room didn't have a hot tube but we used the communal hot tube. The hot tube was clean but it's design was less than perfect as too much of the upper body was exposed to the element when sitting in it.

Avoid a room with a view to the parking lot. We had a view on the pond and it offer a much better visual experience.

The bad:
Poor sleep experience. The mattress was not very comfortable and the pillows were too soft to offer any support. The curtains in the room didn't block enough the outside lights. Walls and ceiling have very poor sound insulation: we could hear the family above us talking and walking and that family was not doing any excessive behavior. We didn't have darkness in the room for the entire night. Finally the radio alarm in the kitchen went off around midnight...

The very sour taste:
When I mention that the radio went off in the middle of the night to the manager, he was unapologetic and told me that it was our fault if we didn't check the setting of our two alarms ( first time it ever happen to me that an alarm is set on when I checked in).
I also happen to use the iron supplied in my room. Within second of using it I saw a small amount of wax residued ruining an expensive shirt. My guess is someone previously use the iron to hot wax their skis!? I brought it promptly to the attention of an employee and went to discuss it with the manager. Richard is the first name of the manager and he told me that it wasn't the hotel responsibility if I made my shirt melt... He offered no apology and they were no room to negotiate a compensation. Sadly Richard lacked both in conflict management or chemistry knowledge.... as I am not sure how you can melt a cotton shirt into wax... Cotton can burn but not melt. Maybe alchemy can explain this phenomenon but I must admit my lack of knowledge in that field!
