Cross country skiing is a great way to spend the afternoon burning off some of that pent up winter energy and it’s an activity that all ages can enjoy. Families with grandparents and grandchildren can often been seen out on the trails on a sunny afternoon.
The Okanagan Valley offers many great places to cross country ski, but none are as convenient as the Telemark Nordic Club. Located a mere 12 km from West Kelowna’s commercial core, it’s an area favourite due to its close proximity to town, the great topography, scenic views and well maintained trails.
Worried about having no skis? No problem – Telemark offers rentals for classic skis, skate skis and snowshoes and affordable rates.
So grab some skis and take in the fresh mountain air as you marvel at the scenery. You may even get lucky enough to see some wildlife along the trails!
The club is home to over 50 km of groomed trails for classic and skate cross-country skiing, 4.3 km of lit trails, a biathlon range as well as 40 km of snowshoe trails.
