About Claudio Martin

We are from London, Ontario but love the skiing and outdoor live in BC. We chose Silver Star for the great conditions, central location and year round activities. We spend most of the winter here ourselves.

Claudio Martin purchased this chalet in 2011

Why Claudio Martin chose Vernon

We liked it so much we bought a house here! Snow conditions are usually excellent, the village offers a variety of restaurants ranging from pub and saloon (Long John's and Bulldog) to fine dining at Silver Grill. And lunch or treats at Bugaboos or Paradise Camp! Lots of terrain, and there is a reason the locals head to the backside! There is no lack of challenging runs and lots of gullies so the powder piles in after a snow fall. Plenty of glade skiing as well, with easy ones on the front side. It is a mountain that needs to be explored to find the best stuff, but there is plenty there. Then, when the legs need something different, the nordic trails are outstanding - at Silver Star on the nicer days, or head to Sovereign Lake if it is colder or windy. Snowshoe trails, a skating rink, tubing, and mini snowmobiles for the kids rounds it all off.

What makes this chalet unique

This is a true mountain style home that belongs in a ski resort. The layout is perfect for adults or two families with children. There is great access to the ski runs and trails, but in an uncrowded area of the mountain. Shuttle service now available to and from the village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick note as we get ready for our last day of skiing to say just how much as have enjoyed your beautiful home. It has been a respite and holiday that has been great for all. Our kids (first time on skis) just loved it and are cruising down whiskey jack and adults have loved the daily pilgrimage to the hill to think about nothing but the great weather and perhaps a glass of wine at the end of the day.

Large, new and well furbished

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful, well-appointed cabin. It's a 1/2 duplex, but large, well planned out and relatively new. We easily fit 6 adults and 4 kids. The owner is straight-up, responds promptly and reasonable to deal with.

Skiers will appreciate:

True ski-in/ski-out chalet. Private hot tub. Clean comfortable beds. Ski boot and glove dryer. Ski waxing station. Large balcony with gas BBQ. Second fridge downstairs. 2 fireplaces. New construction. Spotless condition. Fully furnished and stocked with everything imagineable, including sandals for the hot tub. We will be back next year.

Awesome for teenagers traveling with Adults

  • 5 of 5

The floor plan of this unit is awesome for a group of teens traveling with their parents. The teens have their own floor with all the ammenites. The Adults have very comfortable sleeping accomadation and entertaining area. Kitchen is unreal - spacious and very well equipped. It is a long and not so safe walk to the village so you need to ski out or drive if you want to go.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind comments. The shuttle bus will stop at bottom of the street, leaving about a 5 minute walk. We are trying to convince the resort to have it drive up the street.
