    Well, It depends on what your into...

    If it's skiing there's always Sun Peaks at Kamloops or if you want to travel a little further Panorama at Invermere, but if your goin to travel you might as well just go to Lake Louise and ski with the big boys. If you've really got to stick close to home there's Cyprus Bowl, but that may be too close to home.

    If your looking for a resort to hang out at there's a few good choices: Manteo Beach Resort in Kelowna is pretty swank, they have some nice beachfront condo's there but the lake is still a bit cold to use in March. A lot of folk used to head for Kelowna at spring break, I assume they still do. There is also Salty Spring Resort on Salt Spring Island, It's a also pretty nice.

    You could hit one of the Hot Springs for a couple days, there's a gazillion of them.

    If your into Kayaking or canoeing head up to Squamish, Howe sound is great for this.

    You could go the other way and hit the Island. Tofino or Uculet are pretty cool if your into the hiking thing. I'm not sure if they have Whale watching going on at that time on year or not though. There's also Cowichan lake, some nice day hikes in that area.

    There's also some good splunking for novice cavers on the island. At Horne Lake caves, among others you can hire a guide. If your going inland Cody Caves north of Nelson used to have a guide service, they probably still do but I'm not sure if they'll be open for the season yet.

    I could list off a bunch of places to hit for the "night life" but that's probably not your main concern.

    What are you into?
