Fabulous February Faves in the Okanagan, BC - Skiing
I was told when I was young; to survive the winter with ease, find an outdoor activity you love, dress for the weather & have fun.
Generally; in my area of the Okanagan, BC by the end of February spring is onb the way. The snow is all gone, flowers are starting emerge & people are ready to move on to warmer weather.
But that doesn't mean there are a lack of activities while there is still snow out there.
Locally there is cross-country skiing, snowboarding,snowshoeing, downhill skiing, hiking, snowmobiling. & quading.
You can also still walk along the beaches & watch the waves because the lakes never freeze & on most days there's no snow. When I moved here I was told when it snowed it only lasted a few days & for the most part that is true. Usually the roads & sidewalks are dry & the lawn is visible, only higher up on the mountains do yards accumulate much snow.
The 2015/16 winter season has been a record breaker for all of the local ski resorts, many of them opening before predicted.
The 4 big ski resorts in my area; Apex, Big White, Silver Star & Sun Peaks can be located on this map with information here & are conveniently located near Penticton Regional, Kelowna International or Kamloops Airports.
Each Resort has ski out or hillside accomodations & amenities to make your stay memorable.
Let me know if you're in the area & we can have a beverage!
