20 October 2014Two years ago I was overcome by a feeling of spontaneity when I packed my bags and moved from Kelowna in the Okanagan Valley to a mountain village far above the clouds, known as Big White Ski Resort.

The Okanagan Valley is known as BC's fruit basket for a reason. Cherries, apples, peaches, apricots, nectarines, plums, and pears, to name but a few, are available from June and right through to autumn.
