Canadian Snowbird Location---Osoyoos, BC

Recommended Posts

We are on our way back to the US from a 4 month trip to Canada & Alaska and are in the Okanagan region of Canada.

 

I picked up a brochure about Osoyoos, BC and the brochure was exhorting the "warm" temperatures here in the winter for Canadian Snowbirds. Average highs about 35F and lows about 25F, lots of sun and very little snow. Even warmer in November and Feb/March.

 

The article does mention the audience they are aiming for are the folks in the central prairie region of Canada where I think they have many days with temps in the -20F to -40F, so temps around freezing sound mighty inviting.

 

Cold is just a matter of perspective.

 

Google "osoyoos bc snowbirds" for more info.

Just did a quick check on the temps for Jan 2016 and they seem to be very pleasant for being so far north. Every day in Jan. clear and no precipitation. Several days in the low to mid 40's and most days in the 30's. Look here for a calendar view of all the Jan 2016 temps for Osoyoos.

Fairly popular with the older crowd, as insurance costs spike as ages climb. Still young enough to go to Arizona. ;)

As an aside, weather conditions in the Phoenix valley have been very close to what we get for mid-summer weather, except for late Dec/early Jan. Then it's closer to spring/fall conditions.

As Darryl&Rita said. We have a good friend from Grand Prairie, Alberta who had spent 7 years in Yuma. But out of country insurance, as he has a medical issue, was just more than he wanted to pay for 2015-2016 season. So they went to Osoyoos, and in his words, "damned near froze to death. His propane bill was sky high.
