Penticton Outdoors Club

We are a club of people who enjoy self propelled outdoor recreation. We share our knowledge of favourite hiking & skiing trails in the South Okanagan area. 
Throughout the year we schedule weekly 3 1/2 to 5 1/2 hour long "hiking" or "touring skiing" trips; aiming to reach spectacular viewpoints along routes we have pioneered to make them as interesting and "user-friendly" as the terrain allows. These are usually on Saturdays; with mid week "work parties", or "exploratory trips" by small numbers of "keeners". There is a constant seasonal change in our destinations, with the lower canyons and ridges hiked in spring and fall; and the high alpine in mid summer. Every two to three months we hold social "planning meetings" in different members' homes, to identify hike leaders, destinations and dates for our outings. We always welcome new members. There is a nominal annual fee of $10.00. All that is required are: good boots, a light and comfortable back-pack, adequate water, reasonable fitness, and a friendly smile.
