ON THE SLOPES
Larch Hills, Overlander have lots to offer

Larch Hills Nordic Society has a 2,500-square-foot?heated chalet and warming shelters on its trail network. Cec's Cabin, above, had a bit of an upgrade during the off-season and can be rented overnight. Pente's Shelter is still located at the south hub. Tom's Shelter which had to be brought down will be rebuilt.
The Ski Sheriff is not aware of any other winter resort area in North America within a three-hour drive (of Kelowna) which has this proliferation of opportunities for downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, snowmobiling, tobogganing, dog sledding, horse-drawn sleigh rides, the list goes on and on. And that list doesn't include the Kootenays, a bit further away.
At least once or twice a season, you should try some of the less-familiar ski areas. Two, which might not come to mind for Okanagan residents, are Larch Hills Nordic Society, 20 kilometres south of Salmon Arm, and Overlander Ski Club, 25 kilometres south of Kamloops at Stake Lake.
Larch Hills, which boasts it has "some of B.C.'s best trails," has more than 170 kilometres of ski trails (60 kilometres regularly groomed), 17 kilometres of snowshoe trails, 6.7 kilometres of dog trails and ski programs for all ages.
