Canada’s second largest ski area, Sun Peaks has the ultimate in ski-in ski-out convenience, plus an exciting programme of non-ski activities.

Spread across three mountains, the skiing combines steeps on Tod Mountain with cruisers on Sundance and glades on Morrisey. All levels can ski together, and the ski school is reliably good.

There’s also a huge variety of other activities, from First Tracks breakfast and backcountry tours to evening starlight descents. And if you’re visiting with little ones, the Sundance Kids Centre has a daily childcare programme for children from 18 months to five years.

You’ll find a good range of bars and family-friendly restaurants in the Tyrolean-style village, as well as après activities that include guided ice fishing and sleigh rides. The annual winter wine festival is another great addition, and we always try to catch a Kamloops Blazers hockey match when we’re here.

To experience more, Sun Peaks ski holidays make a great combination with Whistler - our Whistler Peaks Ski Safari gives you the chance to ski Canada’s two largest ski areas on the same trip.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Small but good. Purpose built but not at all soul-less. Amazingly friendly. Loved it and want to go back as soon as we can. Limited extent compared to Europe. Probably enough skiing for three or four days but fine for a week if you are not bothered about repeating runs. We were very happy. Loads of pistes through the trees. Lots of fun pistes with trees on them to ski around. Hardly any significant queues, maybe a few minutes first thing in the morning. The morning and afternoon hosted skiing was a really good way to meet people. Several good places to eat out and one or two to avoid (ask the locals) We did not want to leave even though we were heading for Whistler.

I've always loved Sun Peaks, so much skiing, very little queuing and a good balance of bars/restaurants.

Easily accessible from Kamloops. Wide variety of skiing. Particularly enjoyed Morrisey Mountain. It was our second visit to Sun Peaks and we enjoyed revisiting the village and the pistes. It felt busier on this visit, and clearly there is huge investment happening with new accommodation planned. Might change the dynamic which would be a shame. As with Silver Star, it is an attractive resort with plenty of skiing, and few lift queues. Noticeably more British skiers here than at Silver Star.
