The City of Vernon is located in the North Okanagan Valley, with a population of 45,000 residents. We are located five hours from the west coast and thirty minutes from the Kelowna International airport. The Okanagan and Kalamalka lakes are spectacular lakes that both border our beautiful city. We are home to world class downhill skiing at Silver Star Resort and cross country skiing at Sovereign Lake Nordic Club both within thirty minutes from the city centre. We also boast our world class golf courses of Predator Ridge and The Rise. Our fine city has been known to host large slow pitch tournaments, the BC Winter Games, Cross Country World Cup, and lately the BC Seniors games. For those wanting an active lifestyle, Vernon is the best choice!
