Lake Windermere: The world’s longest ice-skating trail

This is a favourite destination in the Columbia River Valley

Lake Windermere is a hugely popular recreation area in the Columbia Valley and a favourite destination, especially for visitors from Alberta.

At an average depth of just 15 feet, Lake Windermere is fairly warm. (Although it’s called a lake, in fact it’s a widening of the Columbia River.)

Also popular is the Lake Windermere Whiteway, and at 30-kilometres in length, it’s said to the be longest ice skating trail in the world.

Annual events include pond hockey tournaments, fishing derbies, summer celebrations and more.

To be sure, COVID-19 has caused cancellations and closures in many parts of British Columbia. Be sure to check this website while your planning your future trip.
