For those seeking the uncharted
Winter in Sun Peaks
Sun Peaks, Canada’s 2nd largest ski area, is located in BC’s sunny interior and is only a 4.5 hour drive from Vancouver.
With 4,270 acres of skiable terrain on 3 mountains, 6 meters of light dry snow, and 2,000 hours of sunshine annually, Sun Peaks offers world class skiing and snowboarding plus much more. It has been featured as one of the top 10 Best Winter Trips by National Geographic.
Renowned for its sunshine and light, dry champagne powder, Sun Peaks provides a wide variety of trails for all ability levels. Enjoy all 3 mountains with two alpine bowls, green, blue and black runs and glade areas, and conveniently return to the charming alpine village at the centre base. Green level skiers can ride to the top of Crystal Lift, enjoy the view and ski all the way down on ‘Five Mile’ run. Intermediate and expert level skiers and boarders can find exactly what they are searching for…long cruisers, bumps, steeps and bowls. For budding park enthusiasts Sun Peaks offers a well developed terrain park with over 10 acres and 3 distinct zones for beginner, intermediate and expert and over 45 fine-tuned features.
Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy a wide range of additional winter activities including snowshoeing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, tubing, skating and cross country skiing. Sun Peaks has quietly evolved into a favourite Nordic destination. Over 37 kilometers of impeccably groomed and track-set trails are accessible right from the village and your hotel. Truly unique to Sun Peaks, guests can hop aboard the Morrisey Express Chairlift for exceptional access to seemingly endless backcountry terrain.
The Director of Skiing is Olympic gold medalist and retired Canadian Senator Nancy Greene-Raine. Nancy is on the slopes most days and will take you for a tour of her favourite runs. Some of the most colourful characters are the self-proclaimed Sun Peaks Antiques, a group of over 100 enthusiastic skiers and snowboarders who have carved the slopes since the early days of ‘Tod Mountain’.
