Manning Park’s 140 acres of frosty landscapes host at least 24 alpine trails running the difficulty gamut from easy to black diamond. Snow-bunnies can bundle their skis and snowboards for eight hours aboard the four lifts that scale 437 metres from base to apex. Alternate arctic diversions at Manning Park include snowshoeing, ice skating, and an inner-tube polar coaster. Careening upon light, dry snow not only serves as health-bolstering exercise but also synthesizes the feeling of flying through a freshly bleached pile of pure bliss. Bring your own equipment or take advantage of the Resort’s rental options.
Manning Park Resort has a very favorable review on the Legal Addictions blog. More than 800 Facebookers are fans of Manning Park Resort: > * I will start of by telling you what I love at Manning, aside from it being the place where I learned to Alpine and Nordic Ski, Snow Board and Shoe in the winter time. Manning to me has also always been a cozy place where families can afford to go in the summer time, spend a couple of nights in a cabin or go camping on the lake, and enjoy canoeing, fishing, and one of the best network of protected hiking trails in the world. Of course these are some of the fond memories I have from childhood but even today I still come back for the same reasons. – LegalAddictions
Manning Park Resort
Cross-country skiers at Manning Park Resort glide along 30 kilometres of groomed Nordic trails amid the sounds of a rushing river muffled by falling snow. They may not know it, but many of them are following in the footsteps of fur traders, gold seekers, and native First Nations people, the first groups to forge paths through these woods. And the Nordic trails aren't the only way to explore the historic and scenic resort, which is nestled in the heart of the Cascade Mountains, an easy drive from Seattle, Vancouver, Chilliwack, or Abbotsford. In the winter, visit the Alpine area to careen down exquisite powder, or gear up for a day of tubing or guided snowshoe excursions. Debbie McKeown of Snowshoe Magazine found the Similkameen River trail "easy to follow and well-trod," and that the “classic scenery” along the Lightning Lakes trails inspired "frequent photo stops."
During warmer months, rent a boat or canoe to cruise the lake, or hike through verdant meadows brimming with wildlife and wildflowers. Guests can grab a bite to eat at the restaurant or pub before heading to one of the resort's private cabins or the 42-room lodge, which features an indoor heated pool with hot tubs and a sauna. For a complete back-to-nature experience, pitch your tent at one of 350 campsites after stopping at the Country Store for groceries and yeti repellent.
