Kelowna Motel - hell for three days!

Salmon Arm to Kelowna

Having spent the night in Salmon Arm we headed on through Vernon, down to Kelowna – fully immersing ourselves into the American road trip, we decided to check-in to a motel (say Hotel, Motel, Holiday Inn!!) and my god what a hovel that was…. just as well we were only using it as a base to drive to Big White each day.

Big White Mountain 2317m provided us with three great days of skiing (unfortunately for me only the one, as I twisted my knee and had to sit out the other two.. booo!),  plenty of nice runs through the trees and lovely blue sunny skies, followed by a fresh snowfall on the last day.

On one of the nights we bought tickets to watch a Western Hockey League game, where we saw The Kelowna Rockets take on The Vancouver Giants, not going to lie, me and Tom didn’t really have a clue what was going on, but it was fun to experience and absorb some American sports, better still the home team won..
