Make the most of the cold by enjoying the fun Kamloops has to offer

Kamloops is a city for every season, with fun activities to be enjoyed all year round. For families who enjoy the outdoors, winter is just a new opportunity to experience new adventures.

Booking your next vacation? Here are some great winter family getaways in Kamloops.

Sun Peaks Resort

The stunning ski resort is the second-largest ski area in Canada, with three skiable peaks. With over 2,000 hours of sunshine annually, there’s a good chance you’ll get a perfect sunny day for your escape. 

Skiing not your thing? Enjoy any of the fun winter activities offered on site, including back country tours, guided ice fishing, horse-drawn carriage rides and more.

The best part is the easy proximity from Sun Peaks Resort to the Travelodge by Wyndham Kamloops Mountainview and Travelodge by Wyndham Kamloops.

Harper Mountain Ski & Snowboard 

This family owned and operated ski hill is located 20 minutes from Kamloops. Harper Mountain has something for everyone, from over 400 acres of terrain to the lift operated snow town tube park.

Can’t make it during the day? That’s no problem. The park also offers night skiing on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

Ice fishing

Some of the best ice fishing lakes in British Columbia are located in Kamloops. With over 100 lakes within an hour’s drive from Kamloops, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect spot.

You might catch rainbow trout, easter brook, brook, kokanee, bull trout or burbot while fishing in Kamloops.

Some of the most popular spots include Tunkwa Lake and Edith Lake. There are also guided ice fishing trips available.

Winter hiking

Hiking can be enjoyed year-round in beautiful Kamloops. Milder winter temperatures and plenty of sunshine means that you just need to dress in the right gear to have a good time outside.

One of the most popular hikes includes Riverside Park and Pioneer Park, located in downtown Kamloops. The nearly three kilometre walk along Waterfront Park connects the two parks and is filled with public art during the winter. There’s also a chance to stop at a pier to see where the North and South Thompson Rivers meet.

Travelodge is one of Canada’s largest hotel chains with over 100 independently-owned hotels and nearly 9,000 rooms. The brand is known for its affordable rates, proximity to many of Canada's national parks and attractions, free WiFi and free breakfast or an onsite restaurant at every location. 

Travelodge is a member of the Wyndham Rewards loyalty program, allowing guests to earn points for free nights, gift cards or Aeroplan miles.
