Wondering how you get to Raven on the Ridge and how to get around the mountain once you’re here? We have you covered!
Explore the mountain from your Airbnb
Raven on the Ridge is a true ski-in/ski-out accommodation. The Criss Cross ski run goes right through our property, just behind the house, and will take you to the Silver Queen chairlift. From this chair lift, you’ll have access to the entire mountain!
Once you are at the top of the Silver Queen, ride over the bridge and straight past the Silver Wood Express chairlift to get to the village, or turn off at the chairlift and start exploring the mountain.
Not riding and just want to get to the village, go ice-skating at Brewer’s pond, or tubing at Tube Town? Request a complimentary pickup from the SilverStar Shuttle! (only runs in the winter)
Requests for service to The Ridge ONLY are handled by calling the shuttle cell at 250-309-5974. Calls to the driver can’t be answered while driving so calls MUST be made on the hour or half-hour only. There is no need to call the driver regarding service from the Village back to the Ridge as this can be requested at the Village pick-up location on each hour and half-hour. The Ridge pickup is at the intersection of Cathedral and Purcell Rd – Silver Star Mountain Resort
Just keep in mind that in the event of bigger snowfall days the shuttle may not be able to access some areas, Alpine Meadows, Ridge due to snow clearance. But the good news is that the pick-up spot is 150 meters up the street from Raven on the Ridge.
