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.

We've been to Sun Peaks many times, both summer and winter. It's one of the best ski resorts I've been to. There is a great diversity of runs, everything from super easy cruisers to double black diamond. The infrastructure is excellent and the entire mountain is super easy to navigate. The village is very cool and has more than enough... More

Amazing views from top of the mountain. Usually above cloud cover. Can see for miles! Well run, ski resort without the tourist trap feeling of Whistler (much less expensive too)

Skiing/snowboarding was amazing. The runs were challenging and well groomed and staff extremely helpful and friendly. The village has something for everyone. Especially Rocky Mountain Chocolates!

A nice change from Whistler! Large ski resort with lots to do. Snow conditions were decent but this obviously varies. Will certainly be returning.

Skiing Sun Peaks has been exceptional this year even though we have had some uncharacteristically cold weather this ski season. The winter reminded me more of the 1970s with -20oC weather and colder. The top of the mountain has been fogged in quite often but luckily there is lots of other terrain to use when that happens. When it is... More

I live in Vancouver and when going for a short weekend ski trip Whistler has always been my default destination. I had a three day weekend so I thought I would go a little further and I tried Sun Peaks. It took two hours to get from Vancouver to Chilliwack on a Friday afternoon, leaving Vancouver at around 4:30 pm... More
