Whether you come for the diverse ski terrain or for the variety of summer activities, Sun Peaks is a haven for recreational fun in a three-mountain alpine area. Located in the Interior of British Columbia, Sun Peaks boasts Canada’s second largest ski area with 4,270 acres of terrain. With 6 meters of light, dry snow falling annually and over 2,000 hours of sun each year, guests enjoy spectacular winter conditions for downhill skiing, snowboarding and cross country skiing. Off the slopes, more winter adventure awaits with dog-sledding tours, snowmobile and snowshoe tours, horse-drawn carriage rides and more. Summer at Sun Peaks offers just as much recreational fun. Sun Peaks is home to BC’s highest elevation golf course. Guests can explore the alpine with lift-access hiking and world-class mountain biking trails, with opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, Segway tours and horseback riding. Sun Peaks’ vibrant European-style village is nestled at the base of Tod Mountain, Sundance and Mt. Morrisey. The village offers a wide selection of accommodations, restaurants and shopping boutiques.

Its a very pretty resort in the mountains and looks very alpine /tyrolean. It was really quiet when we were there, very little open but it's off season. Nice drive there from Kamloops.

Just a add on to the one review stating only ski clouds got to ski top of mountain before it opened, ski clubs and Olympic training are allowed up early because they have the skills to ski the mountain in not so great conditions, therefore it is not safe to the rest of the public and would cost a fortune to rescue tourists from risky situations

My son is driving around US in a camper van and keen to visit Sun Peaks for a weeks skiiing. How challenging is the drive from Kamloops to Sun Peaks? Does the vehicle need to have 4 wheel drive? Any other tips? Thanks in advance for any feedback from others who may have done this. Cheers. Louise

The road is paved and well-maintained through the winter. Four wheel drive is not necessary for the drive, but snow tires are a requirement on BC Highways. There aren't any RV hook ups at the resort.
