Whether you come for the diverse ski terrain or for the variety of summer...

Whether you come for the diverse ski terrain or for the variety of summer activities, Sun Peaks is a haven for recreational fun in a three-mountain alpine area. Located in the Interior of British Columbia, Sun Peaks boasts Canada’s second largest ski area with 4,270 acres of terrain. With 6 meters of light, dry snow falling annually and over 2,000 hours of sun each year, guests enjoy spectacular winter conditions for downhill skiing, snowboarding and cross country skiing. Off the slopes, more winter adventure awaits with dog-sledding tours, snowmobile and snowshoe tours, horse-drawn carriage rides and more. Summer at Sun Peaks offers just as much recreational fun. Sun Peaks is home to BC’s highest elevation golf course. Guests can explore the alpine with lift-access hiking and world-class mountain biking trails, with opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, Segway tours and horseback riding. Sun Peaks’ vibrant European-style village is nestled at the base of Tod Mountain, Sundance and Mt. Morrisey. The village offers a wide selection of accommodations, restaurants and shopping boutiques.

First off, there's no on-street parking. Strictly enforced. Make sure you know what to do or where to go before parking your car. Facilities are minimal but good. Ski lifts modern and reasonable. Skiing excellent

If you have been to Whistler, BC, this place is similar but seems quieter. There are many summer trails to explore and they are nicely marked. Many restaurants are closed during the summer season.

We took a drive here while in Kamloops...it was so beautiful and the trees and wildlife was incredible. Even in the spring and summer a drive to Sun Peaks is a must do!
