“Rainy weather may have slowed down business in Penticton at the beginning of summer,” says Andy Oakes, President of OHS, “not so for the Hockey School. Our business is not weather dependent. Rain or shine, visitors registered in the OHS show up to spend a week or longer.”
To assist these visitors in planning their time in the Okanagan, the Okanagan Hockey School and select businesses welcome the families and promote their services to them when they arrive to register.
“It surprises me that many of these families haven’t a clue how they will be spending their time in Penticton” says Jackie Frederick of OHS. “Tourism Penticton and Summerland Chamber of Commerce provide tourism information while golf courses, spas, wineries, attractions, and restaurants offer discounts to encourage them to visit.”
