1. Accessibility

Sun Peaks is located in the interior of British Columbia. You can get to Sun Peaks by flying into Kamloops Airport, which has frequent flights to both Vancouver and Calgary. Combining the internal flight form one of these cities with your international ticket is the most cost effective way to get there, and also ensures your international checked baggage allowances goes all the way through.

From Kamloops, it is a 45 minute shuttle ride up to Sun Peaks. We can organise a private transfer via the grocery and liquor store if you want to stock up, or you can pre-order a load of shopping online and have it delivered to your condo!

2. The Ski Thru Village 

The European style ski-through village is located at the base of all three mountains, which makes accessing the lifts quick and easy so you can enjoy more time on the hill. Forget trudging through a busy, concret clad village with icy walkways while you try to carry your ski’s plus the kids, instead you will be able to put your skis on at the door, or within a short walk of most accommodations, and cruise on down to the nearest lift.
