Jack Frost’s Got Nothing On Us!
The Shuswap region may be infamous for its gorgeous summertime beaches and house boating activities, but that’s not to say that this beautiful slice of Canadian paradise slows down in the winter. On the contrary, you can expect to find plenty of people visiting towns in and around the lake and enjoying the many activities, including several cold weather favourites found here in Salmon Arm. From Christmas markets to skating, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing, there are plenty of options that are suitable for adventures of all ages and experience levels, making interior BC ideal for families wanting to travel with kids or for reconnecting with your closest pals for an adults-only getaway. At Setters, we love nothing more than welcoming people to our great big backyard and helping you raise a toast to the many adventures just waiting to be had. Some of the most popular winter activities in the region include:
Ice fishing is a fun Canadian tradition and a unique way to experience the outdoors during the colder months. Grab your closest buddies and your warmest winter gear and enjoy this classic activity (perhaps with a drink or two from our liquor store next door!*). Although Shuswap lake is a great spot for summer fishing, places such as White Lake, Skimikin, and Philips lake all make much better winter fishing spots with nice thick ice and plenty of fish. Once you’re done casting your lines, you can wander down to the pub and swap stories about who got the best catch of the day over hot beverages and delicious food.
*Always enjoy your beverages responsibly and exercise caution when mixing alcohol and any activity.
