Canada’s Alpine Village
Step out of your door ready for adventure in Canada’s Alpine Village. Sun Peaks Resort is just a short, scenic 45-minute drive from Kamloops in the North Thompson Valley of BC’s Interior. An alpine village straight out of a fairytale, is nestled between three separate peaks and rests amid the Cariboo and Monashee Mountain ranges. Visit Canada’s second largest ski resort in summer and you’ll find a haven for hikers, mountain bikers, music lovers and families. Pack your skis for a visit in winter — the entire village is ski-in, ski-out, and surrounded by 4,270 acres of deep, dry BC powder most skiers only dream of.
Come for the Snow — Stay for the Summers
Sun Peaks has earned a lofty reputation as a family-friendly, affordable ski destination — where the snow quality is matched with its award winning ski-in ski-out village. Travellers all the world over descend on Sun Peaks every winter indulging in endless runs down 126 separate alpine trails and terrain park, or to take part in the Winter Okanagan Wine Festival.
You may come for the snow, but you’ll come back for the summers. Those same alpine slopes morph into endless hiking and mountain biking trails, and the village square becomes centre stage for Sun Peaks’ legendary Summer Concert Series.
At the Heart of it all
The pedestrian-only village is the heart of Sun Peaks Resort, where the village stroll will deliver you to the adventure of your choosing. Let the waiting chairlift whisk you up to the summit of Tod Mountain. There are few line-ups around here — so take full advantage of the unlimited access to carve fresh tracks untouched snow. Snowshoe or cross-country ski through the quiet forest on 35 kilometres (19 miles) of groomed Nordic trails. Pound out the snowbanks on a guided snowmobile run, or unwind in a steaming hot tub, feeling snowflakes fall on your shoulders as you soak your cares away.
A wonderland in winter, the resort really lives up to its name come summer when bluebird skies and bright sunshine light up the mountains. Trek through the blooming alpine meadows swathed with colour during the Sun Peaks Alpine Blossom Festival. Uncover a seldom-told chapter of BC’s fur trade history on a Voyageur canoe tour, only one of many family-friendly resort activities ripe with fun for the whole gang.
