Get out and check out some of these February events and activities
February is an endless cycle of ‘winter is here… oh wait spring is around the corner, hmm – snowstorm again… ahh – the sun is out, it’s almost springtime!’ One weekend people are out hiking and the next they are looking to snowshoe or cozy up in a restaurant.
Given how February is really an ‘anything goes’ month, we have rounded up some ideas to keep you busy. From winery events and hockey games to outdoor treks and live entertainment, here are a few of the exciting things taking place in our community.

Head out into Nature
The newly opened Goats Peak Regional Park offers up some nice hiking this time of year. Because the majority of the park faces south and is at a lower elevation, the trails dry up faster than other hiking areas. Several people have been out on the trails and have said that they are in great condition and not muddy.
Still loving the snow? Head to Telemark Nordic Club for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. Trail maps are available online or at the chalet and the club also rents out equipment.
Bull Mountain has an open house on February 6th and they are inviting people to come up for an outdoor skate. Bull Mountain can be found at the former Crystal Mountain site – follow them on Facebook for updates.
Join the roar of the crowds and see the superstars of tomorrow at a West Kelowna Warriors game. On Monday, February 17th they host Trail and on Saturday, February 22nd Vernon is in town.
The inaugural production of West Kelowna’s own community theatre takes place February 14-16 at the Lions Community Hall. Come out for WCKY – a performance that has comedy, crime and romance. Visit the event listing for times and ticket prices.
