Winter in the Thompson Okanagan offers plenty of outdoor opportunities in a mild climate with plenty of sunshine.
Choose from four world-class ski resorts and numerous small community ski hills. Conditions are near perfect through much of the season; the region's mountains are famous for their dry, light snow and nearly 2,000 annual hours of sun.
In addition to skiing and snowboarding, activities such as snowmobiling, snowshoeing and cross-country (Nordic) skiing are popular. For something different, try heli- or cat-skiing, or take a dogsled tour through scenic trails.
