It's time for you to name Kelowna's newest snowblower!

Voting now open to name new machinery

The time has come, Kelowna, to name the city’s newest, lean, mean snow moving machine.

The 10,000-lbs beast arrived early this winter to replace a 30-year-old machine to help save money and clear roadways quicker.

Nearly 900 suggested names were submitted. The final list was determined by City Hall.

Here are the top potential names:

  • Blizzard of Oz
  • Snownado
  • Snow Mercy
  • Betty Whiteout
  • Snowbe-gone Kenobi
  • S’no Problem
  • Buzz Iceclear
  • Snowasaurus
  • Flurious George
  • Blizzard Blaster

The poll closes at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 3, 2023, and the winning name will be announced shortly afterward. The name with the most votes will win.

The person who submitted the winning suggestion will get a deluxe snow blower experience, including a photo shoot and demonstration with the snow blower along with a Snow Angels prize pack.

Full details and contest rules can be found online.
