The winter season is upon us and although the weather outside can sometimes be frightful, the city of Kelowna is always delightful! Our Kelowna hotel welcomes guests all year round and there is no shortage of activities and events happening during the winter months to keep them busy.
Did you know Kelowna has the largest mall between Vancouver and Calgary? Orchard Park Shopping Centre is located in the heart of the city and boasts over 170 stores for you to empty your wallet in. Don’t fret – winter savings are bound to be had! Get some holiday shopping done or spend your holiday gift money on spoiling yourself after the season is over. Our Kelowna hotel has some pretty awesome Shopping Packages to help you either way!
Bundle up and head to a local skating rink to have some fun together! The City of Kelowna has several public skating rinks (with the option of equipment rental) just waiting for bodies to glide on. Or slip on – better rent a helmet too! Stuart Park is the latest and greatest winter hot spot for locals & visitors, with outdoor public skating right beside Okanagan Lake. Now that’s winter bliss.
Tree light ups, live music, craft fairs, pictures with Santa – you can truly experience this festive time of year at one of many events in Kelowna during the winter season. Can you hear the sleigh bells ringing yet?
Kelowna is brimming with fantastic restaurants and cafes that feature local flavors from local chefs, some of whom have earned the recognition of top restaurant awards like Gold Medal Plates and the Canadian Culinary Championships, Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards, and glowing reviews in food sections and magazines across Canada. Eat, drink and be merry!
Located only an hour away from our Kelowna hotel, Big White Ski Resort is one of BC’s best mountain resorts. From epic skiing & snowboarding in champagne powder, tubing/sledding, skating, sleigh rides and more, the whole family will be embracing winter in no time. By staying in town at our Kelowna hotel, you can take advantage of low seasonal rates or even our fabulous Ski & Snowboard Packages.
Pack your bags with cozy clothes and get ready for a fabulous winter getaway ‘cause Kelowna is the place to be this winter! We would know…we live here!
