Best Time to Book a Flight to Powell River Airport

Although most travelers don't realize it, Powell River is actually located inside a rainforest.  However, it is a temperate rainforest, not a tropical one.  This means that the average daily temperature stays above zero degrees centigrade throughout the year.  From October until April it rains on more days than not, but snowfall is rare.  May through September brings warmer temperatures, less precipitation and a much higher chance of a bright and sunny day.  The warmer months also see an onslaught of festivals, like the Kathaumixw multicultural choral festival in July, the Logger Sports Games in July, and the Blackberry Festival in August.  If a visit to Powell River during the summer interests you, try setting up a Skyscanner price alert to be notified when fares to Powell River Airport go on sale.
