Ease of Access

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.

Recently the resort has been broadening its appeal and has added terrain which more advanced skiers and snowboarders will find of interest. Tod Mountain, the highest of the resort’s three mountains, has always been home to some tough slopes, but the 2014/15 season saw the previously backcountry Gils area brought in to the domain, offering some steeps and ungroomed powder runs to whet the appetite of those with a thirst for adventure.
Across the valley from Tod lies the Morrisey peak, traditionally known for its rolling, tree-lined blue cruisers, but also home to some of the steepest terrain in the resort. Recent seasons have seen new trail additions to the steep fall lines of West Morrisey, known as the Laundromat area with amusingly named trails such as ‘Tumble Dry’ and ‘Static Cling’, boosting the number of advanced trails in the resort.

These expansions are part of a carefully managed environmentally respectful development, something of which Sun Peaks is proud, and they have taken the resorts terrain to 4,270 acres, making it the second largest ski area in Canada.

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. The outdoor ice rink is being upgraded for this season to be an NHL-sized refrigerated facility. There are also over 50km of cross-country skiing trails, as well as a variety of snowshoeing trails and tours, and for the more adventurous activities such as dog-sledding, snowmobiling and groomer rides are available. The resort also organises regular excursions to see the local Kamloops Blazers ice hockey team play.

Sun Peaks will also be the venue for the Coors Light Snowbombing Canada music festival from 6th to 10th April 2017. After firmly establishing itself as Europe's greatest music festival on snow, the Snowbombing festival is also coming to Canada for the first time this season, using the terrain and village to host venues as diverse as sky-high mountain shacks, mystical forest stages, pool parties, street carnivals, alpine lodges and medieval barns. There will also be world-class ski and snowboard competitions, DJ battles and more - perfect for ski and music enthusiasts!
