Winter the Coolest Time to Visit Crystal Waters Guest Ranch

Published: 10/7/2015 11:17:04 AM


Crystal Waters Guest Ranch is located in British Columbia’s Chilcotin region and during the warmer months they specialize in horseback riding, ranching and fishing holidays as well as many other activities. When winter hits the region in late November the ranch is covered by a snowy blanket and it becomes a playground for winter enthusiasts. Locals love this time of year as white powder envelops the vast forests and covers the mountain peaks, rolling hills and alpine meadows. Backcountry travel becomes easier as the waterways and varied types of terrain freeze and are covered by a uniform carpet of snow.

Guests who stay at Crystal Waters Guest Ranch during this time can choose from a list of fun outdoor activities or they can simply curl up with a good book in their private log cabin that resides on the shores of Crystal Lake. For those seeking to enjoy the outdoors there are snowshoes available which provides a wonderful opportunity to follow the tracks of the region’s bountiful wildlife. Fishermen will love the peace and quiet found sitting by a hole in the ice with their fishing pole and horse lovers will be thrilled riding through snow-powdered plains. Then, after a fun-filled day of exploring join other guests by a roaring fire and share the day’s experiences while sipping on a hot drink or perhaps take in a sauna. If you feel the need for speed you can bring your own snowmobile or let the ranch help you organize a rental to use during your stay. There are lots of exciting places to explore. Plus during the winter Crystal Lake provides a great surface for ice-skating or playing ice hockey. If you are looking for a more peaceful activity cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are an excellent way to explore this Winter Wonderland. Downhill ski enthusiasts and snow-boarders will love the close proximity of the ranch to Sun Peaks Mountain known throughout the world for its light, dry, “Champagne Powder.” Here you can also find Heli Skiing/Snow-boarding at its best! Plan on getting up early to make a day of it so that you can be back in the evening to enjoy sitting by the fire.
