Two B.C. spots among top 10 Most Popular Ski Destinations in North America

Kamloops Matters


With a month or two to go until ski season hits, Airbnb foresees a big year in B.C.

The accommodation app company has listed the top 10 trending places in North America, and Kamloops (and area) has taken third, just behind two spots in Montana.

The ranking is based on the bookings between November and March and growth by percentage of Airbnb bookings over last year for that period.
