Okanagan Explorer Ski Safari

Great for maximising your ski time, these resorts all have great ski-in ski-out accommodation, as well as quiet slopes and no lift queues. A hire car is better than the shuttles to help you make the most of your time - no one likes waiting for the bus.

Summary

Discover some of Canada’s best all-ability terrain, with family-friendly slopes, perfect powder and adventurous après activities.

The Okanagan Valley has some of British Colombia’s best all-ability skiing, so we’ve based our ski safari around three of its best resorts - Big White, Sun Peaks and Silver Star. Perfect for mixed groups or families, you can ski a huge variety of terrain in all three, while the drives between them are easy.

Big White has been a Ski Safari favourite for many years. It's one of Canada's friendliest family resorts, famous for its huge snowfalls that turn the trees into ‘snow ghosts'. The second largest resort in BC (British Colombia) Sun Peaks has a great range of après ski activities, while Silver Star has a two sided ski area with beginner slopes on the south face, and chutes on the back-side.

Completely flexible, you can spend as much time in each resort as you like. To arrive and depart from the same airport, it’s best to start and finish in Silver Star or Big White. And, although we recommend self-driving, you can use the resort transfers if you’d prefer not to drive - just ask our team to tell you more.

Suggested Itinerary

This sample itinerary is our suggestion of how you could divide your time between the resorts.

All our ski safaris are completely customisable, and you can adjust the itinerary to suit your preferences - whether that means more time in one resort, or following our route in reverse.

Silver Star

An hour from Kelowna airport, this authentic Canadian resort makes an excellent first base. Silver Star's traffic-free village has colourful buildings and an excellent kids’ centre, while the terrain spans beginner slopes to steep chutes and glades.

Sun Peaks

A three and a half hour drive through the Okanagan Valley, Sun Peaks has over 3600 acres of ski terrain with everything from beginner slopes to cat-skiing. The non-ski activities include ice-skating and swimming at the sports centre, and there’s even a night-club in the Tyrolean-style village.

Big White

Drive four and a half hours to Big White for the fantastic powder, ‘snow ghost’ trees, and superb family facilities. The resort’s range of ski-in ski-out accommodation is some of Canada’s best, while the bars and restaurants are good value. On your last day, drive one hour to Kelowna airport.

Price Guide

From £1,649pp for 2 adults for a 14-day Okanagan Ski Safari including accommodation, direct flights and SUV hire.

Actually visited Revelstoke, Silver Star, (Big White for an afternoon), Red/Rossland, Nelson/Whitewater and Fernie. Very good skiing at each, and we were very well advised re the number of days in each place.
