    Is Kelowna in what's called the Okanagan Valley? Isn't that BC's big vino area?

    Edited to confirm, and add link: EYS!!!

    That's exciting news. One of my favorite wineries is in that area.

    Kinda embarrassing, but I've never been to the Okanagan. I am trying to save up money for Boston Worlds so wasn't intending to go to any skating events in the meantime. Hmm...

    But I'm glad they announced it early so we have time to make plans.

    Yes, it's BC's major wine area.

    The Okanagan Valley has some absolutely amazing wines and there's some fabulous wineries in Kelowna itself I'm so excited!! Just a short road trip away!

    Beautiful location, but not exactly a major airport there.

    Unforunately, I don't think I can make that one. Too far to go for a weekend.

    But happy for those who can.

    Nice to see it go to the other coast for next year.

    Kelowna's actually quite easy to fly to - lots of connecting flights from both Calgary and Vancouver, and there are also direct flights from Toronto, Seattle, and LA, so should be less difficult for international arrivals than many other places GPs have been held in both Canada and the US.

    I haven't been travelling to SC much recently, because the reduced number of competitors and shortened schedule mean a lot of travel for relatively less skating, but will definitely plan on Kelowna next year (and manh, you really need to see a bit more of your province!).

    I flew to Kelowna from Seattle and it was a breeze. It's pricey for U.S. travelers though. If I were to go I probably just drive.

    I flew there when I lived in Seattle to see Brian Orser's Husky show. Small, friendly airport, lovely landscape, and nice town.

    It's a longish drive from New Brunswick. Son # 1 lives in Vancouver so we might be able to do a combo trip.

    Maybe I can convince my cousin to get married in Kelowna on the weekend of SC.

    Kelowna made her short-list of places to get married...and the time and location of the wedding is currently TBD.

    I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.
