Harper Mountain is one of Kamloops' best-kept secrets when it comes to family-friendly winter fun. For more than 40 years, the Daburger family has been running this ski resort that features 16 runs and 1,400 vertical feet. For a truly unique Canadian experience, you must try night skiing at Harper Mountain.

On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 5-9pm, guests can hit the slopes under the lights. See if you can spot the lights from Kamloops in the distance while you cruise down the fully lit runs and terrain park.

Skiing or snowboarding not your thing? Kids and those young-at-heart will enjoy a thrilling night-time ride in a tube at the Snow Town Tube Park. Bring some marshmallows and warm up next to the bonfire between slides.

The Lodge is also open with a full hot food menu, and is licensed for beer, cider, and their famous hot wine. For the ultimate post-night skiing après, cozy up with a poutine and mulled wine by the large wood burning fireplace.
