Sun Peaks Resort is a scenic 45-minute drive north from Kamloops via Highway 5 (the Yellowhead Hwy). This alpine village is nestled between three separate peaks and rests amid the Cariboo and Monashee Mountain ranges.
Come for the Snow
Sun Peaks is a family-friendly, affordable ski destination, where snow quality is matched with an award winning ski-in ski-out village surrounded by 4,270 acres of deep, dry BC powder. It attracts travellers world-wide to indulge in endless runs down 137 separate alpine trails, the terrain park, and and two wine festivals: Savour the Sun Mountain Wine Festival and the Sun Peaks Wine & Food Festival.
At the Heart of it All
Stroll through the pedestrian-only village to start your adventure. The chair lift whisks you up to the summit of Tod Mountain where you can take advantage of unlimited access to 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. At the end of the day, unwind in a steaming hot tub. Snowflakes fall on your shoulders as you soak your cares away.
Come Back in the Summer
In the summer, bluebird skies and bright sunshine light up the mountains. Bring the family for mountain adventures that create lifelong memories.
Hiking and Music
The once snow covered alpine slopes morph into endless hiking and mountain biking trails in the summer. The village square becomes centre stage for Sun Peaks’ legendary live music.
Voyageur Canoe Tour
Step back in time and into a canoe with a Voyageur Canoe Tour. Paddle the routes once taken by pioneers and explorers. Watch for wildlife along the way. Finish up your day with a meal in the forest!
Alpine Blossoms Abound
Let the floral aromas of the alpine blossoms wash over you as you ride the chairlift to the alpine. Take your time as you walk along flower-strewn cliffs, silent forests and alpine meadows. Make sure you’re here for the Alpine Blossom Festival at the end of July. Entertainers, activities and Mother Nature are waiting for you there.
