5 Epic Winter Activities in Kelowna

Fact: Kelowna is just as spectacular in wintertime as it is in the height of summer. There are tons of cold-weather adventures here, but we've narrowed it down to our top 5! 

Dogsledding at Big White Ski Resort  Less than a 20-minute drive from Hotel Zed, Big White Ski Resort is a powdery playground encircled by stunning scenery. Prepare to dominate Insta Stories when you hop aboard the resort’s dog sledding tours where Canadian Sled Dogs mush enthusiastically through the backcountry. 

 

 

Cross-country skiing with Telemark Nordic Club  Whether you’re a newbie to the joys of a thigh-shrieking cross-country skiing session or simply need a refresher, Telemark Nordic Club is the perfect place to dive in. We recommend signing up for a 75-minute class if you’re unfamiliar with the terrain – and don’t worry, each lesson is tailored to your skill level.

Hiking in Bear Creek Provincial Park  Who knew a short 10-minute drive from Hotel Zed would lead you to an outdoor wonderland? Bear Creek Provincial Park features five kilometres of well-marked hiking trails – three loops branch out from the main trailhead, ranging from easy to moderate – all leading to spectacular, selfie-ready views.

Mission Hill Estates winter culinary classes  You simply can’t leave Kelowna before visiting at least one of the region’s incredible wineries. Mission Hill Estates offers our favourite excuse to spend a day indoors: three-hour culinary workshops designed for novice cooks and connoisseurs alike. Themed classes explore culinary regions around the world, allowing attendees to gastronomically tour California, France, Italy, India and beyond; other classes star healthy ingredients or seasonal produce. Each course is paired – naturally – with Mission Hill’s award-winning wines. The winery is a short 12-minute drive from Hotel Zed Kelowna (close enough to order a taxi!).
