Why Sun Peaks?
Sun Peaks, the second largest ski resort in British Columbia and the third largest in Canada, has taken big leaps forward over the last few years. The Tyrolean-styled pedestrianised village, modern ski-in ski-out accommodation and high speed lifts have transformed Sun Peaks from a local ski hill into an international ski holiday destination. The expansion continues as new lifts and terrain are added and the East Village area is developed.
The uncrowded ski area offers a mixture of open bowls, steeps and glades on Tod Mountain, beautifully groomed cruisers on Sundance Mountain and glade skiing on Morrisey. The well-planned trail system means that all levels of skier can ski down from any lift - ideal for mixed-ability groups and families.
Sun Peak's village has several excellent restaurants, a few lively bars and a night club. There is a Sports and Aquatic Centre open daily from 3:30pm-9:00pm during the winter and it offers a heated outdoor pool, hot tub and kids pool. The resort also offers Cat-Trax groomer rides (45min ride on a groomer in the evening), snowmobile tours, dog sledding, snowshoeing and snowshoe tours, horse drawn sleigh rides, Nordic skiing, snowbikes (for the non-skiers!) and mini z’s (miniature snowmobiles for little kids).
Two-Centre Holiday - Sun Peaks has sufficient on and off-mountain entertainment for a 10-night ski holiday. However, transfer-based connections to Whistler, Big White and Silver Star make it easy to include Sun Peaks on a two-centre holiday, or a Ski Safari.
Weekly Events Programme - Sunday - reception, Monday - evening snowshoe marshmallow roast, Tuesday - family fun night, Wednesday - Fresh Trax breakfast, Thursday - fondue dinner and evening descent, Friday - Race Series, Saturday - evening snowshoe and marshmallow roast.

Family Friendly Resort - Childcare is available for children from 18 months to 12 years. There is a Kids Adventure Park with mini snowmobiles and tobogganing, and an activity centre with a swimming pool. Any level of skier can ski down from any lift with most runs leading right into the village.
