There are already signs of a great winter ski season shaping up as Air Canada is starting additional flights between Kamloops and Vancouver two months earlier than usual. Normally in a winter season there are five daily flights from Fulton Field to Vancouver International Airport, but last December Air Canada added two more. They are so confident about the extra flights, that this year that Kamloops Airport manager Fred Legace said the airline is starting them on October 28.
Lagace also said this gives him hope that the winter season will do well. He said that since the airline keep such a close watch on advance seat sales, the pre-slaes must be going well for them to have added the two additional flights so early. The Sun Peaks Resort staff are excited and Tourism Sun Peaks president Christopher Nicolson said the early flights will begin before the opening of the ski season on November 17, which will be of benefit to visiting ski teams.
