I like Harper, the staff are friendly and it isn't overpriced. I had an accident and needed urgent first aid. The first aid attendants are volunteers and the one who came to help me was very inexperienced. It took them 2 hours to get me off the mountain (I was a few city blocks from the main lodge) and then... More

This is the start of a Family Mtn...Smaller and less expensive than the big Mtn resorts..Harper has fun for all including a tube park and campfire setting for everyone..Although there is no hotels at Harper..Kamloops is a close 35min drive.

If you are not into the scene and crowds at the big resorts you might love Harper mountain. Parking, rentals, lift tickets - everything is easy, no hassles, no lineups. Staff are friendly. Its a bit like stepping back in time, and great for families. No glitz, no music pounding out of shops, just snow, lifts and a simple lodge.... More

This is what ski resorts were before there were ski resorts. The basic rustic lodge has a "homey" feel with a fireplace thats always on. Very friendly, supportive staff makes the novice feel comfortable and the uncrowded lift lines ensure more time skiing and less waiting. At almost half the price of "bigger" mountains, Harper is great for families, with... More

We rented x-country skiis and zoomed around the x-country area. It only cost $12/person for a few hours of skiing. Amazing.

It doesn't look much when you arrive but it was a brilliant little ski area with plenty of nice long runs & not crowded. The facilities aren't posh but they have everything you need & everyone was friendly. The tubing looked great fun but we didn't have time.

Winter fun for everyone! You can ski, snowboard, and our personal favorite, TUBING. Afterwards, there is a fireplace to sit by, and hot chocolate or lunch you can buy, and ALL of the activities are very reasonably priced.

Harper mountain is only 20 min from Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada and offers something for everyone, from enjoying the 1400 vertical feet of elevation on over 400 acres of terrain, to the always popular Tube Park and for those a bit more daring a Terrain Park. One of the activities offered that other local ski resorts don't is night skiing/riding... More
