This was our 3rd time staying at the Chilcoot over the years. We have been to SilverStar many times and have found this hotel to be perfect for us (mostly because a 1 bedroom unit has a Queen and bunk and so we don't have to pay for 2 rooms).
Yes, it is an ancient building but we are there to ski and it has everything we want. The location is perfect as it is 30 seconds from the main drag and the ski runs. Full kitchen, decent sized room, fairly quiet except for our room, my kids are loud!
If you haven't been to SilverStar, you should try it. The lift lines will kill you because there are none so you will get very very tired. All the Aussies working there are super friendly and make everything fun. The mountain is big enough for avid skiers (like my family) to fill their boots with black diamond runs of all kinds but small enough that you can almost let your teenagers roam freely without fear of not seeing them for the rest of the day.
