Okanagan Resort Life
At Predator Ridge
Nestled in amongst the verdant Okanagan Valley, Predator Ridge is surrounded by some of the world’s most breathtaking mountains, desert grasslands and ancient old-growth forests. With more than 2000 hours of sunshine per year, the Okanagan enjoys the longest and driest golf season in Canada. Hemmed in by the pristine waters of Lake Okanagan and Kalamalka Lake, you can follow the former south all the way from Vernon to Penticton; a 110km ride that will take you through some of the area’s most breathtaking natural scenery.
Recently crowned one of the top 10 most beautiful lakes in the world by National Geographic, Kalamalka Lake has been delighting nature lovers and photographers for years with its mercurial beauty. Known as a “marl” lake, mineral deposits coupled with temperature changes cause it to reflect various colours throughout the seasons — from the piercing inky blue of summer to the chalky glacier blue of wintertime, it is a magnificent natural phenomenon. Offering plenty of opportunities for water sports, residents flock to these freshwater bodies for their stunning beaches, paddle boarding, boating, paddling, and sailing all year round.
Located just 15 minutes from Vernon, many residents of Predator Ridge make frequent day trips to the charming city to spend the day strolling among the warren of its downtown shops. With a population of 55,000, Vernon is a quaint and charming small town with big city amenities. Together with a modern, state-of-the-art hospital, visitors will find a number of farmer’s markets, fine dining establishments, art galleries, boutiques and local shops, as well as theatres.
Skating in to claim the Big City title of the region is Kelowna. Just 20 minutes by car from Predator Ridge, it holds the title of BC’s third-largest city and is just 4 hours from Vancouver — the largest city in British Columbia — and sports a sizable variety of health and lifestyle amenities.
Dubbed the Napa of the North, the Okanagan is home to over 100 wineries that you can spend a lifetime exploring. In fact, five award-winning wineries sit within a stone’s throw of Predator Ridge; all of whom offer wine tours that embark directly from our resort.
Renowned for its plentiful working farms, vineyards and artisans, all of us who call the Okanagan home enjoy working synergistically with local growers and our chefs are no exception. Living here fosters a farm-to-table mentality that allows our chefs to choose products at the height of their flavour and nutritional profile. Each and every menu found at Predator Ridge is designed with a Fresh.Local.Better philosophy in mind. In other words, we believe that eating well is an important part of a healthy state of mind.
Besides its reputation as a spectacular destination for summer activities, winter activities in the Okanagan are also world-class. Famous for our champagne powder snow, both Big White Ski Resort and Silver Star Resort — two of BC’s most popular alpine ski destinations — operate close by. For lovers of Nordic Skiing, both resorts have well-maintained cross-country and snowshoe trails provided through the Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre and the Kelowna Nordic Ski and Snowshoe Club.
