Environment Canada reports Cranbrook as British Columbia’s sunniest city.

Receiving on average 2,229 hours (that’s over 182 days worth) of sunshine annually, the blue bird days in Cranbrook are abundant. The semi-arid mountain environment that surrounds the region means the region has mild winters and warm summers. Don’t think this situation sells us short on snow as Cranbrook is perfectly situated on the Powder Highway, with over 10 world-class ski resorts all within a three-hour drive. Spring and fall are welcoming too, where the average rainfall is minimal at 276mm annually, more than enough to keep the region vibrant.
