SUN PEAKS RESORT

No Crowds. No security checks. No lift lines. Pure simplicity.

Nestled in the Shuswap Highlands of the Thompson Okanagan Region in beautiful British Columbia’s interior, Sun Peaks Resort is rapidly becoming the year-round destination of choice for outdoor enthusiasts. Sun Peaks three mountains soar over 882 vertical feet above the ski-in, ski-out village. Long cruising runs cascade from the high open alpine into a valley of snow-covered trees.

Sun Peaks has 4,270 skiable acres making it the 2nd largest ski area in Canada. Each chairlift gives you access to blue, green and black diamond runs, so friends and families can all ride the chair together then split up and choose a trail to suit their ability level. Most trails lead right into the village so it’s easy to reconnect with your friends and family after a run.

Canada’s own Nancy Greene, Olympic Champion and Female Athlete of the 20th Century call Sun Peaks home and skis with guests most Saturdays and Sundays and holidays on her complimentary mountain tours. Complimentary mountain tours with the Sun Hosts are also available at 9.15 am and 1.00 pm daily.

This is a very family-friendly resort with kids activities such as the Tube Park, bungee trampoline, mini golf, ice skating and sleigh rides. The slope-side Sundance Kids Centre offers services for children 18 months to 5 years. Sun Peaks offers something for everyone!

Sun Peaks offers a wide variety of dining and après-ski options. You’ll find a relaxed nightlife scene at Sun Peaks featuring pubs, lounges, restaurants, cafes, and live music performances. The Sun Peaks Winter Okanagan Wine Festival is an annual event and is a “must do” if you happen to be staying in Sun Peaks at the time. Reservations are essential.
