While the COVID-19 pandemic remains an obvious concern, it's easy to physically distance in the great outdoors while skiing, snowboarding, skating or snowshoeing.

This could be the year for you try one, or all of the above, at one of the ski resorts in the region.

Here are the season opening dates at the four major ski hills in the Kamloops and Okanagan region:
