A few of us are planning on a christmas trip and are trying to make up our minds where to go. We're definitely staying in BC, and we all live and ride in the Okanagan/Revy so we're hoping to go somewhere we don't get to see as much.
I've been to Whitewater a bunch and Red once, but never even close to early in the season. Wondering if it's worth the trip in December or better to do a trip later in the season even if it will have to be shorter. Maybe there's a few locals around that can fill me in on how the decembers are out there, and maybe some inside info on accommodations. I've always just watched the weather and gone last minute since I used to have family in Nelson, but now we'll need somewhere to stay and I have a feeling you can't just show up at christmas with no reservations.
Somehow i've never been to Kicking Horse, but in fairness i've not heard many good things about it. The terrain is interesting to me, big lines for sure but I feel like it could be a parking lot at a busy time like christmas break.
The irony here is the Okanagan has big decembers, but we really want to do a road trip while we have the time off. Your thoughts and knowledge are much appreciated.
