It’s Already Winter

2022 will finish soon. There is only one month left. It’s already winter. I will give some examples of what we can do this season. 


Skiing is one of the most popular winter sports. Generally, this is available from November to April. According to the winter sports site, 14.94 million skiers enjoyed last year. Skiing has many effects on our health. Examples include improved insulin resistance, glucose metabolism, and a drop in blood pressure. 

In Kelowna, I think that Big White Ski Resort is the best place to go skiing. Big white opened on November 17th. They will run until April 10th, 2023.


Snowboarding is one of the popular winter activities as well. As well as skiing, you can enjoy this activity from November to April. About 125 million people are enjoying snowboarding. Snowboarding also has many benefits, such as making the body more flexible, improving bone strength and joint support, improving mobility and reducing your risk of injury.

We can do snowboarding at Big White Ski Resort as well.  This is good for people who don’t like skiing or can’t. I think you will have a good time if you do. 


Generally, December is Christmas! Christmas is such a fun activity for people. As you know, people give presents to each other, and then open and have fun! Many shops and stores hold Christmas campaigns! Primarily, they hold sales.

Many events are held around BC. Santa Clause comes and sees us! It’s good for your child! They will be glad. But some people may cry… Did you prepare something for your friends, girlfriends, boyfriends, and family? Christmas will come soon! If you haven’t yet, you should start as soon as possible. 

Ice Skating

Ice skating is a good activity to do in winter. Skating has been loved by many people for a long time. Everyone can skate by themselves and with friends and families; we can have fun whenever! This year, Kelowna’s downtown skating rink has been open since December 1st. Also, the Capital News Center (indoor skating) has opened since October 17th. 

At first, skating is a little bit difficult for beginners; however, after doing it a few times, I think you will be able to skate!  

Hockey Game 

The Hockey game is loved by many people. Hockey is held during winter. In Canada, hockey is so popular among Canadian people. Both the audience and players can enjoy the game with each other! In Kelowna, hockey is played between the end of September and the end of March. 

How about enjoying it with your friends and family?


There are so many fun things to do in the winter!
