  • Manning is always lovely for the skiing and snowshoeing but we were a bit dismayed at the lodgings. The Lodge itself has seen better days. Threadbare couches, old carpeting and chipped drywall that hasn't been repaired properly. One of the hot tubs wasn't working (lukewarm water and no jets) and the restaurant is rather dated and could be freshened up a bit. They seem to have spent all their money on the lovely new cabins. I'm sure they are beautiful inside! Staff in the Nordic Centre, restaurant and Country Store were very friendly and helpful, though and were incredibly lucky to get a last minute room for Family Day weekend! All in all we enjoyed ourselves very much.
  • There's no describing the possibility here at Manning park. I've been out hiking there in the summer and see miles of beautiful country and spent many nights sleeping under the stars here. There's no shortage of places to go, and each hike takes you somewhere in the park that will take your breath away. Just pack smart and be prepared During the winter the ski resort is another worth while thing to see. Lift tickets and equipment rentals are fairly priced, and they also offer toboggan, and snowshoe rentals. Walking the trails in the snow offer another excellent outdoorsy way to visit the park. The resort is amazing as well, and they offer good food and have a pool with two hot tubs. Nothing feels much better then a day of winter activities then sitting around in a hot tub with friends
  • Very cozy mountain resort. Not far from the Gibson Pass ski area, about three hours winter driving from Vancouver. Winter snowshoeing is best, summer hikes on the alpine areas, breathtaking views after a good hike or just driving to 2010m elevation if you take the long winding road from across the resort. In the wintertime, you can spot lots of wild animals tracks in the snow. Beautiful drive if you can take your eyes off the road for seconds. The ski area is not very busy, which is a nice thing for those looking for less crowded places to ski where there are no lineups to the ski lifts. Once on the top, you will be amazed by the views.
  • Our little secret ski resort. Shhhh. Don't let it out but Manning Park is a great place to ski. Great snow conditions. Well groomed and maintained runs. No lineups at the ski lifts too. The lodge is a little pricey for food but you can tailgate from your car right on the hill. The hotel is a nice place to stay and the rooms have recently been updated. There is a pool, hottub (so necessary after a day of skiing) steam room/sauna as well as a weight room. Outside there is a skating rink as well as a first class sledding hill. If your looking for a great place to take the kids for a weekend of skiing, Manning Park is the place.
  • This is one of my favorite provincial camp grounds if you are into the whole "glamping" thing. They have facilities with showers, spacious camp grounds that provide you your own privacy, and lightning lake is breath taking. Further, if you love to hike there are amazing trails that surround the campsite (various endurance and difficulty levels), and you also have the option of renting a kayak at lightening lake to go for quick kayak around the lake. Also the campground welcomes your four legged friends as well. :)
