Elevating Winter Products to Drive Tourism Revenues
The Wonder of Winter program has been designed to present the Thompson Okanagan to the consumer as a premier winter destination. Working with our stakeholders and communities TOTA will be assisting in creating a new sense of vibrancy to the region’s winter story that elevates experiences, animates the valley destinations and increases the length of stay of our winter visitors.
Key to this initiative is the development of a comprehensive inventory of winter product, itinerary development and the creation of partnerships that will assist in motivating and moving guests on and off our ski resorts to enjoy cities and surrounding area experiences.
Through a greater understanding of non-ski winter products and encouragement of partnerships we will work to promote new non-traditional winter products such as weddings, spa, culinary, special festivals and events that will complement traditional ski products in our region.
