Spring in the Okanagan
Dated: March 23 2023
The Okanagan Valley is known for its stunning natural beauty, and spring is an especially wonderful time to experience it. Although the weather seems a little cooler here than years past, we know the warm weather and beautiful sunshine are just days away.
Here are a few reasons why I love spring in Kelowna. Blossoming orchards: In the spring, the orchards in the Okanagan burst into bloom, covering the landscape in shades of pink and white. The sight of thousands of fruit trees in full bloom is truly breathtaking. Mild weather: Spring in the Okanagan is generally mild and pleasant, with temperatures ranging from 10 to 20 degrees Celsius. This makes it a great time to explore the outdoors without the heat of summer. Wine tours: The Okanagan is known for its world-class wineries, and spring is a great time to take a wine tour. Many wineries offer special events and tastings during the spring months. Outdoor activities: With the snow melting and the temperatures rising, spring is a great time to enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, biking, and golfing. The Okanagan offers a wide range of outdoor activities for all skill levels. Festivals and events: The Okanagan hosts a variety of festivals and events throughout the spring, including the Cherry Blossom Festival, the Osoyoos Oyster Festival, and the BC Uncorked Wine & Food Festival. These events offer a chance to celebrate the season and the region's unique culture and cuisine.
My very favorite thing about this time of year is skiing and golfing in the same day or week. Right now Big White and Silver Star are enjoying beautiful spring skiing while there are already a handful of course open for the season such as; Two Eagles, Kelowna Springs, Shannon Lake and Michaelbrook, with four more golf courses scheduled to open tomorrow.
Hopefully if you already live in the Okanagan, you will have a chance to get out and enjoy the pleasant weather and if you are looking to move here, feel free to get in touch and let me know how I can help!
