2. Wander Scenic Snowshoe Trails & Canyons
Explore a winter wilderness and immerse yourself in snowy vistas by strapping on some snowshoes and heading for the trails this winter.
The rolling, sagebrush-covered hills of Kamloops get a dusting of white each winter and offer plenty of snowy space to explore, including 40 kilometres of trails in Kenna Cartwright Nature Park and a waterfall lookout at Peterson Creek Nature Park. Just south of town, kick your heels on 12 kilometres of marked trails near Skate Lake or bring your pup for a loop around McConnell Lake. For snowshoe views without the hike up, catch a lift up nearby Harper Mountain.
Just outside Kelowna, snowshoeing through Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park and over the Myra Canyon trestle bridges is an otherworldly experience. Home base at Chute Lake Lodge, between Kelowna and Penticton, for overnights in comfy cabins complete with their own network of snowshoe trails out the front door.
