About the Ski Resort

With 3678 acres and 2891 vertical feet of fall line downhill on three mountains, all skiing nicely into one well planned village, Sun Peaks Resort is an experience that will change the way you view winter resorts forever.

Sun Peaks has some other claims to fame, such as the best grooming in Western Canada and the best weather for skiing in Canada (Sun Peaks averages over 2000 hours of sunshine per year).

There is no lack of things to do once the sun does go down at Sun Peaks Resort, with numerous pubs, restaurants, a rockin' night club, skating rinks, tube park, etc. to give the whole gang maximum value during their holiday. There are also another dozen or so non-ski activities such as dog sledding, snowmobile tours, and snowshoeing should you wish to take a day off the slopes.

For an exceptional product at a price that will pleasantly surprise you, look no further than Sun Peaks Resort.
