“More Poop than Powder”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Should be renamed sh :O peaks. Dog poop everywhere. For the best experience, come in the spring when the whole winter's worth of crap is melting out of the snow and flowing down the pathways. Savour the aroma of the little streams of sun-warmed, liqufied excrement that trickle across the walkways and parking lots. The village walking path is paved with the stuff. Your kids can stomp through it, or drag them on a tobogan so they can dabble their fingers. Undoubtably all of your footwear, floors and carpets end up caked in it. Probably the yards, decks and hot tubs too as the snowblowers spray it far and wide. The average resident is apparently a sociopathic dog owner. There are complimentary stations with bags and drop boxes all over so there is no excuse for this disgusting vandalism. These filthy pigs have polluted the place to a nauseating extent. For this reason alone I may never return to Sun Peaks; there are lots of other resorts which must be more civilized and responsible. Spending thousands of dollars to travel across the country for a ski trip and ending up wading through other peoples' feces for a week is not a quality vacation. They need a bylaw and some enforcement officers who can fine these sickening slobs $500 per turd and make them pick it up with their bare hands (or at least their Bogner ski gloves).

“Lovely Summer Retreat”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

It's a lovely destination and a short drive north of Kamloops, B.C. Although it's primarily a winter destination, we decided to see what it was like in the summertime. I was impressed with its location - green mountains, lots of color, and a good choice of restaurants despite it being off season. It's a great place for a quiet get-away with your special someone. The air is so clean, you can feel your lungs just taking it all in. We tried several restaurants in the village - they all passed muster - from the take-out spots to our favorite, Morrissey's. Sun Peaks has a good selection of places to stay - we opted for the Delta Sun Peaks. From our window, we could see the green mountainsides and that blue, blue sky. If we ever find ourselves down this way again, we would definitely consider a return visit.
