Winter Kickoff 2017
Pre-ski is the new apres-ski.

TO welcome the snowy season in true Kootenay style, Nelson and Kootenay Lake Tourism (NKLT) is reaching out to the community to generate excitement and put together a kick-ass roster of events.

"We want to provide visitors with lots of compelling reasons to visit the Nelson and Kootenay Lake region before winter truly arrives. From artisan craft fairs to live theatre, culinary and retail specials, to feature film screenings, there will be plenty to see and do that reflects our unique Kootenay vibe", said NKLT Executive Director Dianna Ducs.

The opening weekend will feature the return of the popular Blue Nights arts and culture extravaganza, along with Customer Appreciation Day at many local retailers. Multiple Christmas craft fairs beckon visitors with unique one-of-a-kind creations. Whitewater Ski Resort will be supporting Winter Kickoff in their authentic Kootenay style.

Winter Kickoff culminates with the annual Santa Claus Parade on Nelson's historic Baker Street, and Kaslo's Light Up celebrations on December 2.

NKLT has launched a new website dedicated to the event at www.kickoff.com with more details and a calendar of events.
