    Kamloops has some great riding from what I hear but not sure asbout the ski resort itself in terms of ride levels.

    If I may say this as someone who has skied there though - it aint worth it - try Silver Star for skiing over Kamloops - steeper, more varied and generally the better resort with a small town niche fit to go with it - its also a great place for a summer ride camp (dh oriented over xc admittedly).

    Kamloops skiing is flattish cruisy blues which Silver Star does better with the advantage there is somewhere to progress to - Sun Peaks has some ok blacks but no doubles diamonds worthy of the name.

    I instruct in Silver Star and have skied Sun Peaks - I know what I speak of.....

    @ Delcol, not booked with anyone, gonna hire the gear at Whistler/Kamlops when I arrive there. My Mrs. and I are driving from Vancouver to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, taking in numerous stops along the 1,900km route, I just happened to add Whistler and kamloops to the route. (Coincidental...Hmmm..perhaps.... :wink::wink: 8) 8) )

    @ Paul, only hitting the bike trails at Kamloops, not the Piste.... man i am bad enough on 2 wheels, God knows what I would be like on Ski's :oops: :oops: :oops:

    thanks for all the info... :D
