This holiday season, take some time to enjoy yourself and reward your hard working staff with a joyful outing in Penticton!

Start the day off with an afternoon outdoor adventure – a snowshoe or cross country ski outing up at Nickel Plate Nordic Club, or spend a day on the slopes, skating and tubing at Apex Mountain Resort, rent fat bikes from Freedom Bike Shop and take your group along the KVR, or perhaps enjoy a wine tour with the office.

Next, pick a location for your Christmas dinner; with plenty of options to choose from in Penticton, you’re sure to find the perfect setting your corporate holiday party. Here are a few choices for your holiday party:

Fully Curated and Catered at Nickel Plate Nordic Centre

If you’ve never been to Nickel Plate Nordic Centre, you are and your staff are in for a treat!

Only a short drive above Apex Mountain Resort, you’ll experience breathtaking views while you take in Nickel Plate’s unique landscape. Start with an afternoon of outdoor activity in one of their pre-built packages and finish with a catered dinner at the lodge – a log building heated by two crackling wood stoves.

Guided by their expert instructors, every team member can find enjoyment participating in a cross country skiing lesson/tour or exploring the easily accessible snowshoe trails.

After your alpine adventure, head back to the lodge and indulge in culinary delights provided by La Cucina Delicatessen, The Nest Restaurant, and Chris Mathieson of the Grist Mill.
