"What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness?" John Steinbeck
Winter is a great time to be in the Okanagan. With so much snow since February, there are a lot of activites to experience. Apex Ski Resort is an hour from Naramata. The locals trek there for downhill skiing and all the social events they offer. Nickel Plate Nordic Centre offers cross country and snow shoe trails. The quaint lodge is a great place to have your picnic lunch after a morning on the trails. Our friends, and their dog Henry, took us for a hike into the hills near Summerland. We packed hot chocolate, chai tea, and muffins and had a picnic in the snow at the half way point. The view was spectacular. Whether you're snowed in at your place or spring is near, remember to enjoy the present. "People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy." Anton Chekhov
