Prefer a weekend where you can get outdoors and get your adrenaline pumping? For the skiers and boarders, Big White Ski Resort’s famous Okanagan champagne powder is just under an hour from Kelowna. Other outdoor adventures in the area include snowshoeing through the vineyards at The View Winery (followed by a wine tasting!), cross-country skiing at one of the area’s Nordic centres, or skating on the lakeside rink in Stuart Park. Several Kelowna hotels are offering ski, stay, and play packages, making it easy to plan your weekend adventure. After a day on the hill, head back to the hotel to relax in the hot tub or venture out to explore downtown Kelowna. Parents can plan a kids-free night out by booking a trusted babysitter through Jetsitters.
Experience Kelowna Culture
A weekend in downtown Kelowna will be the perfect getaway for those who want to shop, dine, and enjoy Kelowna’s arts and culture scene. Grab a latte from one of the local cafés like Giobean Espresso, Bliss Bakery & Bistro, or Bean Scene Coffee Works, then wander Bernard Avenue to check out the local shops and grab a mid-afternoon pick me up from Karat Chocolate. Travelling with little ones? Make some art at the Kelowna Art Gallery, design a hockey jersey at the Okanagan Heritage Museum, or celebrate the kick-off to Heritage Week at the Kelowna Community Theatre. For those travelling with friends, savour a delicious dinner at one of downtown’s many local restaurants then take in Ballet Kelowna’s latest collection of dance, laugh the night away with Kelowna Actors’ Studio production of “A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum,” or head to BNA Brewing for their Palentine’s Day celebration.
