Perched in the upper North East sector of Kamloops this area enjoy a touch more winter due to altitude. Similar to Upper Aberdeen you may see snow for just a bit longer. A mix of older and brand new homes, prices can go from 250,000 to over 1 million dollars. Some condos in the mix off of Hillside Drive offer park access.
The fact that the majority of Kamloops is built into this valley formed by the rivers meeting, the weather seems to up and rise over us to the North, blowing up the North Thompson River. We are protected by the surrounding hills. It can be a wakeup call when you make that "quick trip" to Vancouver or Calgary and you come up out of Kamloops to find 10 ft snow banks along the side of the roads. Always best to view the BC road report camera views. Also carry winter clothing.
