Snowshoe Tour – 2020 Vernon Winter Carnival Event

Join us for a vigorous snowshoe trek through the wilderness, on winding trails to the delightful rest stop – the Black Prince Cabin. Your guides will escort you through magical, snow-covered forests, meadows and ravines to our cozy cabin where there will be entertainment and merriment, with light refreshments!

Geo Caching comes to Sovereign Lake

In cooperation with GeoCaching BC, Sovereign Lake Nordic Club has undertaken an initiative to place 10 geo caching stations throughout our cross country ski trail and snowshoe trail network.

GeoCaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world.

A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook and sometimes a pen or pencil. The geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it with their established code name, in order to prove that they found it. After signing the log, the cache must be placed back exactly where the person found it.

We are excited to offer this great family friendly activity at our facility and look forward to many years of use. With over 1 million geocaching locations in almost every country around the world our 10 should add a unique regional flavour. The stations remain year round so you can visit us in the summer as well!

Sovereign Lake will be hosting a Geo Caching Day in association with GeoCachingBC and BC Parks on February 25th from 10-2pm. We will have 20 GPS units available for the public to use as well as link options for you to register your own phone to start exploring. Stay tuned for the upcoming event on our website and social media feeds.

Black Prince Dinners


Welcome to a new season of our Black Prince Dinner offerings. This season we will be hosting four events throughout the winter showcasing exceptional three-course dining with the allure of a short backcountry hike.

Candlelight white linen seating, contemporary food offerings served by professional caterers and new friendships will be the highlight of your visit.
