Winter Contest

Enter to Win 1 of 2 Winter Getaway Packages to Penticton, Each Valued at Over $1,300

Penticton is an amazing vacation spot anytime of year, but there is something magical about wintertime! The winters are so dry and temperate here that many outdoor activities continue right through the year. There’s also opportunities to enjoy our winery tasting rooms during a quieter season, taste our local craft beer, indulge in incredible dining experiences, and don’t forget to pick up a souvenir to remember your trip by with many local shopping options.

Visit Penticton is giving you the opportunity to win 1 of 2 amazing winter getaway packages so you can experience Penticton this winter for yourself! These 3-night travel prize packages include your hotel stay, a gas card to get here, dining, wine, shopping and fun winter activities.

Experience Penticton this Winter

Penticton is full of incredible experiences and winter activities and we will help you take advantage with either a day at Nickel Plate Nordic Centre or Apex Mountain Resort. At Nickel Plate, you’ll get cross country ski rentals, days pass and lesson for 2 at Nickel Plate Nordic Centre, which is valid until the end of the 2022/2023 season. They have 56 km of groomed trails for both classic and skate skiing, plus a warm and cozy day lodge. At Apex Mountain, you’ll get 2 adult lift tickets to enjoy a day on the mountain in the incredible, light champagne powder, valid to use for the 2022/23 season. Some other fun activities you can enjoy while you are up at Apex include skating on their 1 kilometer Adventure Skating Loop through through the forest, tubing, or playing a game of hockey on their NHL sized outdoor hockey rink.

We are well-known for our Penticton channel float in the summer, but you can float all year long. After a day on the mountain, check out Ogo Float and enjoy relaxing float therapy. They are expertly designed to provide a distraction free, completely weightless environment that helps to soak your muscles and relieve stress.

Local Dining in Penticton

Penticton is a culinary destination, with an amazing selection of dining options, wineries, and 8 craft breweries. Our prize packages provide an opportunity to taste your way through Penticton and find a new favourite. Start the day off with breakfast at Petrasek Bakery, an artisan European bakery where everything is traditionally handcrafted and made from scratch. Try a pizza bun with egg or an egg croissant sandwich, with a hot coffee and cookies to go. For lunch (or another breakfast option), Gratify Foods is a choice you can feel good about. They offer wraps, soups, sandwiches and salads, all made in-house, and everything is gluten-, dairy-, and refined sugar-free, including their desserts! For dinner and a local craft beer, Bad Tattoo Brewing offers a unique menu of pizzas, to pair with their beers – that, like a true bad tattoo, are handcrafted and leave you with a great story to tell. Another dinner (or lunch) option you can try is The Station Public House, located at the Ramada by Wyndham Penticton, with fresh soup made in-house daily, sizzling steaks, wood fired pizzas, pastas, and seasonal specials.

Winter Wine Tasting

What is a trip to Penticton without a wine tasting or two? Any time is wine time in Penticton and no matter the season, you’ll find authentic, intimate tasting experiences. Many wineries in Penticton and the South Okanagan remain open during the winter months, so come and enjoy a tasting of our local varietals including limited ice wines. Each prize package includes (at least) one wine tasting for 2! Through sustainable viticulture and premium winemaking, Township 7 Vineyards & Winery crafts quality wines that reflect their unique terroirs, which you can enjoy with your tasting for 2. Wine lovers & foodies alike will enjoy a visit to the elegant tasting bar and restaurant to discover beautifully crafted wine at Time Family of Wines. After your tasting at Time Winery, stay for a bite to eat, and perhaps take in some live entertainment.

Shopping in Penticton

Get some Penticton shopping done at The Bumwrap! They provide top quality swimwear, footwear, accessories, and so much more, for all ages and people. For your Penticton souvenirs, each prize package includes a gift card to the Penticton Visitor Centre.

A Relaxing Winter Stay

Your accommodations are covered, with a 3-night stay either at the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Penticton or the Ramada by Wyndham Penticton Hotel & Suites, with your stay to be booked prior to April 30, 2023. At the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Penticton, wake up refreshed after a long day of adventure and a great night’s sleep in their cozy rooms to enjoy a complimentary hot breakfast each morning of your stay.
