After you pass through the South Okanagan region and head north up the valley, you will encounter orchards and vineyards, evidence of some of the best fruit and vegetable growing land in the world. Dozens of parks surround Okanagan Lake, an outdoor adventure playground where the only difficulty is deciding what to do with your time.
Ski at Silver Star, Big White, or Apex? Wilderness camp at Okanagan Mountain, or farther north at Monashee? Mountain bike at Kalamalka, or at Silver Star? Wait, wasn’t that where you were thinking of skiing? As you can see, the choices are dizzying: Many of the spots you love in one season offer a whole new set of opportunities in another. To put it simply, this is one area worth spending some serious time in.
