Skiing, Okanagan Lake, the Weather
Another unique fact about Kelowna – there are few other places in the world where you can go skiing in the morning and golfing or boating in the afternoon.
That’s right – Kelowna is home to one world class ski hill called Big White, with many others within driving distance of the city. Less than a two hour drive from the Big White village lands you on the shores of Okanagan Lake – one of the largest lakes in the BC interior.
Known for it’s calm temperate waters, Okanagan Lake has become a favorite vacation spot for families and business people alike. Many famous people also consider Kelowna and the surrounding Okanagan Valley home including hockey players, movie and TV stars and even world renowned musical performers.
Still need more reasons why we call Kelowna home? The average daily temperature ranges from just around freezing (0 C 32 F) in the winter to a comfortable 28 Celsius (82 degrees Fahrenheit) in the summer. We also average around 2000 hours of sun during the year with only about 27 mm (1 inch) of precipitation, on average, per month.
