About Sun Peaks

At the heart of British Columbia and about an hour from Kamloops, Sun Peaks is an affordable family friendly destination.

With a diverse terrain of 4,270 acres spread between Tod, Sundance and Morrisey mountains, Sun Peaks is the second largest ski area in Canada, after Whistler Blackcomb.

Sun Peaks has 135 trails that include 16 designated for Nordic Skiing and 882 meters of vertical skiing to suit all abilities, ranging from bunny slopes to double black diamond.

It's a European-style ski village that includes condominiums, restaurants, bars and shops. This exciting resort developed into a year-round destination with the introduction of the highest elevation golf course in Canada. The 18-hole, par 72 Graham Cooke-designed course is built along the valley floor and provides a challenge for even the lowest handicapped golfer.

As well as golf, the summer months feature horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking, fishing and stand-up paddle boarding among the many activities on offer.

What to do in Sun Peaks

In the winter, Sun Peaks is everything that a skiing trip should be. A variety of slopes, miles of cross country slopes and a relaxing fireplace with a glass of mulled wine to help you plan out the next day’s adventure.

If you fancy a break from the skiing, how about leading a team of huskies from the back of a dog sled? This fun tour is not only jam packed with excitement, but also gives you a chance to meet the dogs and learn about this ancient tradition.

Ever tried ice fishing? Here is your chance to spend half a day on a frozen glacial lake fishing for mountain rainbow trout.

During the summer, try cross country mountain biking through the woods or, for the ultimate adrenalin rush, take you bike on the cable car up mount Tod for an incredible downhill ride.

Top Sun Peaks travel tips

Winter or summer… there is never a bad time to visit Sun Peaks, but, like other popular resorts try and visit midweek to avoid the weekend crowds.

After your first day on the slopes you’ll most probably wake up with a few aches and pains which can be solved with a soothing massage from Hands on the Move.

For a chance to get to know your fellow vacationers, consider going on a moonlight snowshoe and campfire cookout. The tour begins with a kilometer walk through the forest before arriving at a purpose-built campsite where you can cook sausages and roast marshmallows on a roaring fire.

Sun Peaks is what Whistler was 20+ years ago, a family-friendly resort with affordable prices. To book a condominium in the alpine village check out FlipKey for a choice of accommodations.
