Welcome to The Foothills! As the name implies, the Foothills occupy the gently sloping hills on the road to Silver Star Mountain Ski Resort. The Vernon neighborhood offers spectacular sweeping views of Kalamalka Lake and Okanagan Lake to the South, the lights of the City of Vernon, and Swan Lake to the West. Popular with active families and retirees. A great location – less than 10 minutes to downtown Vernon and less than 20 minutes to the ski and cross country slopes at Silver Star Mountain Resort!
