We stay at the Comfort Inn and Suites in Salmon Arm. Each room contains two queen-size beds. A complimentary buffet breakfast is available to guests in the downstairs breakfast room. On Friday, we will ski a few hours at Stake Lake before arriving in Salmon Arm at about 5:00 pm. On Saturday our bus will transport skiers to the Larch Hills trail system which is about a 20-30 minute drive from our hotel. Please note that we are not going on the loppet weekend so all trails will be open for skiers. Larch Hills has 43km of groomed and almost 100km of ungroomed trails as well as a great network of snowshoe trails. There is a heated lodge at the trailhead and a cabin with fireplace along the trail. If you don’t quite manage the whole trail system on Saturday, you can do the rest on Sunday. A great ski destination!
