The joy and benefits of snow

With new facilities in Tulameen, it has the potential of becoming the ordinary folks Whistler.

Dear Editor,

Is that snow? Seven feet in Tulameen – Coalmont, three + feet in Princeton and a short foot in the suburb of Penticton.

Isn’t it great to live in snow country and have the toys! The joy of doing aerobics with a snow shovel. Male or female.  Wonderful to have the foresight and wisdom to know where to invest. No shortage of water like California and prepared for any flood.  Dingy conscious.

With new facilities in Tulameen, it has the potential of becoming the ordinary folks Whistler.

The future Winter Olympics.

All that’s needed from the coast is a four lane highway from  the Hope-Princeton Westgate via in part the Tulameen River Road to Princeton  providing a quick outlet for the bursting Lower Mainland city folks and voila. “lots of business.” There will be homes on the benches along the Tulameen all the way to Hope.   Long overdue is the necessary short alternative to highway three and the Coquihalla especially if they are closed is a four lane highway from Princeton thru Chain Lakes to Summerland for rapid access to Penticton-Kelowna higher education,  medical expertise and world famous Okanagan wine medication.  Just a matter of time. The Similkameen-Okanagan will thrive.  Yes an enviable place for you and the sweetie to raise a family or if you are among the growing number that are over the hill— to retire.

Be happy. Be super happy!

Joe Schwarz,
