Sun Peaks Resort, in British Columbia, Canada is the second largest ski area in the country, only smaller than Whistler. Significant investment has been made over the last few years with new lifts, upgraded restaurants and lots of new accommodation. Here are the top 5 reasons to visit Sun Peaks (content courtesy Sun Peaks Resort);
1. The Ski Terrain
Being the second largest ski area in Canada, we are known for our 360 degrees of skiing & boarding that expands over three mountains, offering up a 4,270-acre playground. From steep and deep powder, to long cruisy groomers, there is truly something for everyone. Our 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.
2. No Crowds
Our vast terrain means one thing for sure—you’re bound to get tons of space to yourself. A lack of crowds combined with wide open spaces have been a source of praise for years from dedicated skiers and locals. You’ll love getting fresh turns all day long!
3. Winter Activities for Everyone
Not a downhill skier or boarder? No problem! You can still have an epic experience at Sun Peaks. There are 37 kilometers of groomed and track set Nordic trails. Or you can try your hand at ice fishing, ride a horse-drawn sleigh, ice skate, take a snow bike lesson, go on a snowmobile tour, a dogsled tour or a snowshoe tour, the possibilities are endless! A full list of winter activities can be found here. Be sure to leave enough time for shopping in our ski-through village.
4. Plenty of Aprés
When it comes to après ski you’ll be spoiled for choice here. With 20+ restaurant and cafés to choose from, there is no shortage of places to grab a drink and a bite after a full day out on the hill. Bonus: you can continue to soak in the fresh mountain air on one of Sun Peaks’ many outdoor winter patios.
5. Great Deals on Offer
Although 2020-21 may not be the season to visit Sun Peaks, we are confident that things will be back for travel in 2021-22 and Ski Travel will be here to help make your snow dreams come true. Traditionally Sun Peaks have offered free skiing and rental for kids up to 12, plus heavily discounted lift tickets that are exclusively available to us as a specialist ski wholesaler. We look forward to helping you plan a Sun Peaks Holiday in the future. Until then…..
