Winter offers adventures with cross country skiing, snowshoeing, downhill skiing or snowboarding at Apex Mountain Resort.
What We Have
Host your event at the idyllic full-service Penticton Lakeside Resort & Conference Centre overlooking Okanagan Lake, or at the largest dedicated full-service meeting facility in the B.C. Interior, the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre — conveniently adjoined to the South Okanagan Events Centre Complex with its over 95,000 square feet of meeting and trade show space, plus a 5,000 seat multi-purpose arena – or at one of our many hotels with event space. Penticton also has many smaller, more intimate venues; there are many options that combine resort-like comfort with a strong business and service presence.
