Explore Okanagan Powder

Take advantage of The Cove Lakeside Resort’s central location and close proximity to three amazing ski resorts, all within approximately a one hour drive.

Big White Ski Resort is the second largest family ski resort in British Columbia with one of Canada's largest, modern lift systems. The mountain's amazing 2,765 acres of skiable terrain offers impeccably groomed runs suitable for downhill skiers of all abilities. Book your shuttle to the mountain from Cheers Okanagan tours for just $49 per person return, with pick up and drop off right from The Cove Lakeside Resort.

Silver Star Mountain Resort, with its champagne powder and varied terrain attract every kind of skier to BC’s third largest ski area. The colourful mid-mountain village offers a true ski-in, ski-out access to the slopes, and Canada’s first all-inclusive lift ticket provides affordable, family-friendly fun for guests. With four distinct mountain faces and 132 runs, the progressive terrain is perfect for learning. For the more adventurous, the backside of the mountain is an uncrowded paradise of over 1,900 acres of steep and deep, black and double black diamond runs.

Apex Mountain Resort is south of The Cove, just outside of Penticton. Apex receives the perfect mix of large amounts of precipitation, combined with low humidity and the dry champagne powder snow we’re famous for, is born! And because Apex Mountain Resort is the only mountain in the Okanagan that faces northeast, those beautiful powder snow crystals are less affected by the sun and the famous light, dry powder snow can survive for days after a snowfall. With an average of 600 cm of this special snow falling each season, Apex provides the moderate winter conditions and dry power snow craved by skiers and snowboarders alike.


Sip Okanagan Wine

Spend the day taking scenic photos of the snow covered mountains while sipping on delicious local wine for the ultimate winter experience. Enjoy the beauty and serenity of quiet tasting rooms in the winter season and book a wine tour with one of our preferred partners.

Enjoy a chill and fun tour with Uncorked Wine Tours, to experience West Kelowna’s Westside Wine Trail or book with the Okanagan’s first wine tour operator, Okanagan Wine Country Tours, to experience Kelowna’s Lakeshore Wine Route.

As you're planning your Okanagan wine tour, be sure to ask about ice wines and which wineries produce and sell it. Icewine is traditionally a unique sweet wine produced from the juice of naturally frozen grapes that are grown and picked in ideal winter conditions. It’s the perfect treat to pair with a charcuterie and cheese board from Bonfire Restaurant.
