Canada’s Second Largest Ski Area
Step out of your door ready for adventure at Sun Peaks Resort, a European-style, pedestrian-only village framed by three mountains. Summer brings meadows of colourful alpine blossoms, biking hiking, events, canoe tours, and festivals.
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
Explore the three mountains that form Canada’s Second Largest Ski Area, easily accessed from the village by 13 lifts. 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. Take a spin in the terrain park or enrol in a lesson, class, or camp. Bundle up and take a dog sled tour, go ice fishing, fat biking, skating, snowmobiling, tubing, and much more! There’s also shopping, dining, a fitness centre, a spa, several places for massage, and a hair salon.
Cross-country ski through the quiet forest on 37 kilometres (19 miles) of groomed Nordic trails or explore a snowshoe trail. Pound out the snowbanks on a guided snowmobile run. At the end of the day, unwind in a steaming hot tub and feel the snowflakes melt on your shoulders as you soak your cares away.
The Village 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.
Come Back in the Summer
In the summer, bluebird skies and bright sunshine light up the mountains around Sun Peaks Resort. Bring the family for mountain adventures that create lifelong memories. Entertainers, activities, and Mother Nature are waiting for you here.
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, with an exciting calendar of events to choose from.
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.
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!
