Winter, The Coolest Time to Explore the South CaribooAsk any local, and they will tell you that winter is the coolest time to get out and explore the South Cariboo. Winter hits the region in late November, laying down its snowy blanket. White powder shrouds the vast forests and covers the mountain peaks, rolling hills and alpine meadows. It freezes the waterways and covers swamps, wetlands, brush and blow-down with a uniform carpet of snow - making winter backcountry travel just plain easier.
Crystal Waters, a Winter Wonderland!
One can strap on some snowshoes to follow the tracks of the region's bountiful wildlife, sit meditatively with fishing pole by a hole in the ice or ride a horse through the snowpowdered plains. Then, after a day of exploring, a roaring fire and hot drink warms the chilled - and there is the opportunity to take in the sauna. Strapping on a pair of snowshoes is a fun, traditional, and very peaceful way to explore the South Cariboo's beautiful, snow-laden back-country in winter.
