The 27th Annual Spring Fest is being held at Manning Park from Saturday 17th March to Sunday 25th March. There are lots of events, with something to entertain everyone.
Kicking off this Saturday (17th) is the Snowcastle Contest, Face Painting and a Scavenger Hunt. Not only that, it's St. Patrick's Day so remember to dress in green. On Sunday (18th), the Scavenger Hunt continues and the Snow Castle Contest concludes with a People's Choice Award for the best snow castle as judged by guests at the Ski Area.

With the clear, sunny days of the past week (and fresh snow of today) lots of people have been taking advantage of the snowshoe trails at Manning Park Resort. A great place for snowshoeing, the Resort offers a fantastic variety of terrain that suits the first-timer or avid enthusiast and encompasses everything from mellow one-hour loops to more challenging options that can be combined with an overnight camp. Among our more popular trails (and staff picks) are the Similkameen River trail and loops, Lightning Lake loop and trail to Cascade Lookout.
The resort has been getting busier close to the start of the season. With a week to go until the ski hill is open, everyone is excited. More and more day trippers have made journeys to places like the Cascade Lookout or Lightning Lake. Soon the nordic trails will be freshly groomed and the skating rink will be open!
The Lodge has been answering endless phone calls, and has been helping everyone from lone wanderers to wedding parties enjoy the resort. Soon the rooms will be fully booked with Christmas holiday guests. Call the front desk at 1-800-330-3321 to make your reservation.
On a beautiful sunny day yesterday, the weather data confirmed a solid settled base of 80cm with 11cm of new snow. Everyone is getting ready in their own way! Laces and buckles are checked and the smell of wax is in the air. Lets see how staff are preparing for our Dec 10th opening.
Equipment is ready on the racks, instructors are helping sign the trails, and the ice rink is clear of snow and waiting to freeze just right for the first hockey game of the year.
