Sun Peaks Ski Resort

The 2nd biggest resort in British Columbia and the 3rd largest in Canada, Sun Peaks is an ideal mountain resort for families. Its convenience, ample sunshine and accessibility serve as a perfect winter vacation destination for families or large groups, or anyone looking for a more relaxed Canadian ski vacation.

Situated at the center of three mountains—Tod Mountain, Sundance Mountain and Mount Morrissey—Sun Peaks has a whopping 9,088 acres of terrain, including two alpine bowls, 122 trails and the new Rockstar Energy Terrain Park.  Sun Peaks has an average snowfall of about 220 inches of excellent snow per year, but don’t forget the sunscreen! On average, Sun Peaks receives 2,000 hours of sunshine per year. 

When après-ski time arrives, relax in Sun Peaks’ European-style village, with 19 different restaurants, dozens of shops and boutiques and nine hotels connected by covered walkways. The restaurants in the village, from local pubs to fine dining, emphasize using local products on their menus including oysters from Vancouver Island, meats from a ranch north of Kamloops and cheeses from the Okanagan Valley, to name a few. One of the things that make Sun Peaks so desirable is its accessibility. Located only 45 minutes from the Kamloops International Airport and less than two hours from the Kelowna International Airport, Sun Peaks is a unique combination of a mountain stay and the comforts of a big city without the hassle of a long drive in the car.

Ski Sun Peak

In general, Sun Peaks terrain is almost naturally divided. Beginners and intermediates will find plenty of terrain on the lower portions of the mountain and around the base area village, while expert skiers will want to head to the resort's 7,000-plus-foot summit to access steeps and powder bowls, and backcountry cat-skiing.

Sun Peaks offers cross-country skiers 19 miles of groomed Nordic trails and 14 miles of off-piste trails. There’s truly never a dull moment on a Sun Peaks ski vacation.
