Vernon rests at the north end of the Okanagan Valley in a landscape as welcoming as its people.

Surrounded by rolling grasslands with rocky outcrops and stands of ponderosa pine and Douglas fir, its three lakes and mountain views in every direction command attention.

When driving through Vernon on Highway 97, there might not appear to be much to this city, but turn right or left off the highway and the diversity of attractions is truly surprising.

Nature remains Vernon's biggest asset. Famous champagne powder at Silver Star Mountain Resort, just 22km/13mi from downtown, attracts skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers and snowmobilers. In summer, myriad hiking and cycling trails explore every area from the historic Grey Canal within the city to the nearby provincial parks and the rugged Monashee Mountain Range. Mountain biking is also a big draw at Silver Star.
