Kelowna, British Columbia

A recreational lakeside paradise on stunning Okanagan Lake, Kelowna is a relaxing place to visit.
Its temperate climate offers a break from the Canadian Winter School traditiion of cold temperatures
and lots of snow. However, ski enthusiasts need not despair. Big White, British Columbia's second largest
ski resort is just an hour out of town!
