Tyrolean-style village perfect for all the family

Sun Peaks is the near-perfect family resort; it has a friendly, convenient Tyrolean-style village with boutique shops, cafes and restaurants within walking distance and a ski area which offers challenges for all levels of skier without splitting families too far apart. With dry interior BC powder, uncrowded slopes and more than 2,000 hours of sunshine annually over the 3 mountains, there may not be a more enjoyable place to ski.

3 Things We Love About Sun Peaks

  1. Canada's second-largest ski area - Offering a huge ski area of 4,270 acres you'll find heaps of piste to enjoy.
  2. Modest in size and away from cities - This means that along with a large amount of terrain you'll also find the slopes quieter and less (if any) queues for the lifts.
  3. Plenty of sunshine - The weather is fantastic in sun peaks offering more than 2,000 hours of sunshine over the year. So bring plenty of suncream and get ready to enjoy skiing as well as plenty of relaxing on sun loungers.

The Best of Sun Peaks

A huge ski area to explore; the second biggest in Canada no less! Plus you'll find a beginner, intermediate and expert run from the top of each chairlift so you can navigate the mountain in a group much easier.
The Pedestrianised resort village makes it so easy to explore the boutiques, restaurants and bars. It really does have a Tyrollean feel and you'd be forgiven for thinking you were strolling through a major Austrian resort!
The weather in this part of Canada is perfect for skiing... PERFECT. Beautiful sunshine, big snowstorms of super dry fluffy powder snow, and the quiet crispness that winter is all about.

The Best Time to Ski at Sun Peaks

As with most of British Columbia, the ski season starts early and finishes late so any time of the season is great. However, the magic of Sun Peaks comes alive around the festive period so especially if you have children, a ski holiday at Christmas or New Year will be unforgettable.
