The attractive ski resort of Sun Peaks lies at the foot of three snow-clad mountains. With a cleverly designed, purpose-built village, with a ski-through centre, a variety of quality lodging choices and a number of dining and other off slope options all helping to make a Sun Peaks ski holiday ideal for families and those looking for an all-round ski holiday experience. The atmosphere in Sun Peaks is relaxed with plenty of room on the slopes in day and casual nightlife on offer in the evening.

The addition in time for the 2104/15 season of 522 acres of new terrain will take Sun Peaks ski area to 4,200 acres, the second largest in Canada. The current domain of 3,678 acres will be augmented by 110 acres of trails on West Morrisey (between the Back in Time and Static Cling trails) and 412 acres of runs on the current back-country area of Gil's, atop Mt Tod. At this point Gil's will remain hike-in (from 5 Mile Trail accessed via the Burfield chairlift)/ski-out, with an outrun at the bottom, increasing the current vertical.


The resort as a whole offers everything from wide-open groomed runs to steep mogul trails. Novices will find much to enjoy on their ski holiday to Sun Peaks and with some long green trails there is plenty of scope to progress. Intermediate skiers have a vast choice across the three mountains, including glorious rolling blue trails like Out of the Woods and some short testing blacks like Sting. The picturesque route through the trees of The Other Way ranks as one of our favourites. Snowboarders will find lots of interest, including the Terrain Park on Sundance. More advanced skiers and boarders on their ski holiday to Sun Peaks, will head up the Sunburst and Crystal chairs, where some of the tougher black trails await, including the bumps of Headwall and the popular Spillway.


Each of the three mountain areas has something for everyone, making a Sun Peaks ski holiday a great location for mixed ability groups. There are also free hosted tours daily, on offer for all ability levels, to help you get a feel for the place and to make the most of your visit.

Sun Peaks is just 45 minutes from Kamloops airport. Much of the lodging is slope-side and is based around the heart of the compact village. There are several restaurants and bars, along with shops and other services, but it is more laid-back than lively, which makes for relaxing evenings after busy days on the slopes on your ski holiday in Sun Peaks.

Many properties also have hot tubs and other facilities


The resort has a number of other activities on offer, with tubing and skating top choices. There are over 30km of Cross-country skiing trails and for the more adventurous activities such as dog-sledding and groomer rides are available. There are also regular excursions to see the local Kamloops Blazers ice hockey team play.
