#OkanaganExploring

A little bit urban, but a lot outdoorsy. The Okanagan is a place you can settle into for a week or more in winter. It has it all – and we mean everything – from winter carnivals to wineries and awesome outdoor adventures, too. Sounds too good to be true? Well, it’s not when you go #Okanagan Exploring.

Kelowna and Vernon get into winter mode with an array of events and festivals all season long. Up in the the mountains at their world-renowned ski resorts, you can get your winter on with dozens of Canadian activities: downhill, cross-country, skating at the highest elevation outdoor rink. You’ll wish winter lasted longer. You can easily drive or fly here and once you arrive, simply pick your base and settle in for winter fun on the slopes at Silver Star or Big White or in the city where you can dine in style or casually, sample craft ciders and beers – and of course a massive selection of local wines.

Ski, stay and play across Kelowna and mark your calendar to head into the Okanagan for a wide range of events including the Vernon Winter Carnival in Feb 8 - 9.

What ever you uncover tag your adventures with #OkanaganExploring on social media, and you might be featured on our social media channels. 

#ExploreBC go #OkanaganExploring this winter!
