Find a warm welcome and Tyrolean-style charm in Canada's own alpine village.
- Spread across three peaks, it's Canada's second largest resort, with 4,270 skiable acres.
- Sundance Mountain has mellow groomed runs, while Mount Tod offers open bowls and gladed terrain.
- Cosy, car-free resort town has a range of ski-in, ski-out accommodation options.
- Average of 2,000 hours of sunshine each year and less chilly than the Rockies.
The well-planned trails mean that intermediate and advanced skiers have a fantastic variety of runs to choose from: Sundance and Morrisey have loads of blue runs with some easy glades for those that like carving around trees - provided they're not too close together. Tod is also great for intermediates, but does step it up a notch with some black bowls - perfect for the slightly more ambitious skier. Crystal Bowl is our favourite for its terrain and, obviously, its great name. And as Sun Peaks is nestled in interior British Columbia, you'll be able to experience the wonderfully dry, fluffy powder that rivals even the best snow in Canada.
Sun Peaks village isn’t too shabby either. It has a pedestrianised centre that you can ski through, and Tyrolean-style, pastel-coloured buildings which make the village extremely pleasant to walk around. And, as most of the accommodation is slopeside, it's more than convenient for families. With around 40 shops, restaurants and bars, it’s not the largest village you can find, but it definitely does the job. You can also eat at a range of different places to suit all budgets, tastes and occasions - from the family-friendly Mantles Restaurant with its mid-range prices to Oya Restaurant and their sushi dishes. But just in case, most accommodation have their own kitchenettes so you can whip up some meals of your own.
What’s not surprising though is that in Sun Peaks, as in all the other Canadian resorts, you’ll receive top-class service and hospitality wherever you go. Everyone will serve you with a smile on their face, and on most weekends Olympian Nancy Greene will be around to guide you around the slopes and pass down some of her skiing wisdom so you can make the most of the mountains.
