Winter For Beginners

Winter in the Shuswap can be enjoyed by seasoned pros and never-evers alike. Here's a suggested 2 day itinerary for winter with no experience necessary!

Day 1

Pick up a bag lunch at Blue Canoe Bakery in Salmon Arm on your way out – call ahead to have one prepared. Visit John’s Ski Shack – in a quaint log cabin right at the base of the hills – to rent snowshoes and get expert
advice. Explore the trails at Larch Hills! Amazing snowfall and dense forest make for a winter wonderland. Enjoy dinner and local craft beer at the Barley Station Brew Pub.

Day 2

Savour cool-climate wines and stroll the vineyard at Larch Hills Winery – open year-round, but call ahead first to check road conditions. Enjoy a new snowshoe route at Larch Hills, or try out skis this time! Unwind with a massage in the afternoon.
