Wonderful Family getaway

A wonderful family friendly mountain. Great summer venues and hiking. The best skiing in Canada, dry snow and sunny skies most of the winter.

I was expecting this to be a very beginner/intermediate oriented mountain, which it is. But there's actually some really fun terrain and little hikes up top for advanced skiers and riders too. Their park is also out of this world and the village is pretty ballin'. LET IT SNOW! :)

Visited Sun Peaks in early February 2015 when most of the PNW had little or no snow. We found lots at Sun Peaks. The bottom was definitely spring skiing, but we found some fresh powder at the top of the mountain. I really liked the variety of terrain from easy groomers to bowls. Sun Peaks has definitely focused on families... More

We discovered Sun Peaks about 14 years ago, recommended by our Travel Agent (Karen @ Travelplan) when booking Whistler. We have since been to Sun Peaks 4 times, and never returned to Whistler; and the main & simple reason is, the quality of snow. Weather is weather, and no-one can guarantee the outcome during your vacation, but, sitting in the... More

This is my local mountain. It has lots of runs for all different kinds of skiers. We have do have more snow than the coastal resorts and I count myself lucky to live in the area. A best kept secret that is starting to get out and so it should.

I go every year with the same group to ski at Sun Peaks. As with all ski places the weather and snow conditions vary. We have had -20 C days with clear skies, fog, wind, and this time a little rain at lower elevations (unusual). Generally you can expect good snow and weather conditions compared to the coastal resorts like... More

This place keeps getting bigger and better. It could use a second road access for both convenience and safety. As well it could use a full service grocery store and a gas station. It has everything else.

It's ski fields are plentiful, the people in the town are lovely and it's in such close proximity to Kamloops that you can stay in reasonably-priced accommodation and drive the short distance into Sun Peaks to ski for the day! It's nice for a visit on foot, also!

Everything up there is expensive. Even the lift tickets. The hill really is beautiful though. We had fun, our bank account however did not.
