Thank You for an Amazing Season!

And that’s a wrap!  We are so thankful for our amazing ski community this winter. There are so many new faces, and club members skiing more than they ever have before. We know that our facility was a saving grace for our community, keeping everyone safe, spaced, and healthy. Kudos go out to our amazing staff, volunteer committees, and Board Members for keeping Sovereign open for everyone to use this season.

The yellow gate will be locked effective Sunday evening so please park in the lower parking lot if you intend to ski more days on ungroomed trails this spring. Please recognize that the lodge is closed effective April 11th and there are no inside facilities or first aid available.

We can’t wait to see you in November! Season Passes and Programs Registrations go on sale June 1st.

All the best this spring.

Kal Tire Provides Grant for New Rescue Toboggan

Thanks to a generous donation from Kal Tire, SLNC will be the recipient of a new Rescue Toboggan in early January.  This new toboggan will provide significantly more protection from the elements for patients and provides a jump seat for a first responder to travel directly with the patient to monitor their vitals and provide additional medical assistance should it be necessary during travel to our First Aid Room.

SLNC is also investing energy and staffing with more of a first aid presence to provide our customers with a high quality of care in case of an injury. As more and more people take up cross country skiing, the necessity for increased first aid presence grows.

Our number 1 priority is keeping our members and the public safe. This will be a great addition to our safety equipment.

Stay Safe And Avoid Unnecessary Travel At This Time


With the travel advisory issued by Dr. Bonnie Henry on November 19th, we are requesting that people from outside the Okanagan region stay home at this time and limit any unnecessary travel as directed by the PHO.

To view the latest travel restrictions please check out the BC Governments Health Advisory page HERE. This restriction is in effect until December 7th.

If you are unable to come to Sovereign this winter we are honouring all pass refunds. If you are purchasing day tickets please be cognizant of these new rulings and book no more than a week from your visit as we do not refund day tickets.


Call for Volunteer Ski Hosts

With our new pass scanning technology, we have had a couple of our members volunteer to scan passes with our hand scanners out in the parking lot entrance and out front of the lodge. This is a great opportunity to meet more members, and help us to keep traffic moving much more quickly. We are looking for people to do 2 hr shifts between 9 and 2pm, Friday through Sunday and over the Xmas Holidays every day.

Contact Troy Hudson, General Manager, at [email protected] if you would be interested in more information.

It’s Official…We are opening this Friday!!


With a good snowstorm overnight we have been able to pack a substantial amount of trails to open for Friday morning at 9am for Season Pass Holders. As we continue to receive more precipitation we will be able to open more trails so please be patient.

SLNC Opening Delayed

Due to an unfortunate amount of rain and warm temperatures this past week we regret to inform our members and the public that there will be no skiing at Sovereign for the foreseeable future until we have sufficient snowfall.  As soon as we have 15cm of packed snow we will open for operations.

We are also suspending our day ticket launch until we can confirm an opening date to reduce the number of refunds required.

Thank you for your patience.
