Cross-Country skiing (Dave Heath photo)
The Thompson Okanagan is one of BC's major cross-country skiing destinations, thanks to a long skiing season, fantastic conditions and plethora of Nordic areas and trips.
Hundreds of kilometres/miles of trails wind through snow-laden forests and past frozen lakes, and are complemented by dry champagne powder, bluebird skies and cool temperatures.
Ski world-class trails at Sovereign Lake and Silver Star Resort – many Nordic national teams trained here prior to the 2010 Olympic Winter Games – or visit a downhill ski resort for well-groomed Nordic trails, accommodations and equipment rentals. Prefer remote settings? Ski in Wells Gray Provincial Park, where old-growth forests and wildlife are the only company.
