Winter sports and the Okanagan are a natural mix. Surrounded by mountainous terrains, it almost seems like there are as many ski resorts as there are golf courses!
The slopes beckon snowboarders and ski buffs from across the globe, all looking for the legendary Big White, or Crystal Mountain, or Silver Star experience.
Each of these massive ski resorts is known for the great variety of family and advanced ski runs available.
Don't take our word for it, check out their websites and see for yourself!
Not into the formal ski slope thing? That's okay! The Okanagan Valley is a valley after all and you can't have a valley without lots of skiable slopes littering the area.
Whether you're taking the family to the local golf course (where many Kelowna residents gather after a fresh snowfall), or going along logging trails in a 'cross country' adventure, the Okanagan delivers time and again to grand pleasure.
You can visit any number of local parklands to find swaths of clear slope ready for a day of family sledding, and it's all local to the area.
