We enjoyed our ski vacation at Sun Peaks from March 28 to 31, in spite of our initial disappointment. We feel that we were mislead by Sun Peaks Central Reservations. We were really looking forward to our ski in/ski out condo. (We booked the Fireside Lodge). Central reservations really needs to inform patrons when there is no snow near the... More

If you want the best skiing BC has to offer, and you have outgrown the need to ski 5000 vertical feet all at once and find 3000 vertical adequate for your aging legs, then Sun Peaks is definitely where you want to be. Apart from the skiing and other snow sports, you can have fine dining at a different restaurant,... More

We had a good time. The resort did its best with what snow they had. Very friendly and helpful staff. It's not very busy compared to Whistler. Our only bad experience was shopping at Jardine's Ski Store. The owner was very rude and very unhelpful. She literally sold a jacket underneath us and laughed at me.

Having skied previously in Banff and Whistler we were looking for a venue with the best of both worlds - ski-in/out location of Whistler with the feel of the town of Banff. Sun Peaks offers this combination in spades and even though there wasn't a great deal of snow this year (apparently one of the worst winters in Western Canada... More

Our family has been going up to Whistler for 40+ years. I grew up skiing at Whistler. For years I have heard all about Sun Peaks. Well I just spent 6 days at Sun Peaks with my family and we had an awesome experience. The snow conditions have been a challenge this year all over B.C., but we just skied... More

This is our second time to Sun Peaks and won't be our last. The interior snow is simply better than the coastal snow (even when they have it...) and skiing was excellent even late in the season in a bad season. The size and configuration of the mountain complex totally allowed for accomodation to conditions: for example, when the wind... More

Just came back from a week at Sun Peaks - had terrific holiday despite what the locals consider marginal snow conditions! Full coverage on the mountain except for the steepest terrain - better than most western Canadain resorts this season. Would be outstanding when they have their normal snow year. Compared to Whistler (skied it about 14 times!) different vibe.... More

It is not fancy like Whistler but more into really skiing and enjoying your stay. I liked the broad ski anywhere slopes and then the trails a glens. One could have group of mixed abilities but all ski together because of the trail arrangements.

Sun Peaks is a great ski hill. It has something for everyone and has plenty of options. Snow conditions are typically good although like the rest of the west coast of North America the 2015 season has been challenging. Where the resort is let down is by the limited dining options available.

Yesterday we took a trip on the 'Born to Run' dog sled ride throughout the beautiful country in this area, wow what an amazing experience, meeting and greeting the wonderful happy dogs and the recently born puppies. Then it was off into the run, exhilarating and exciting. The dogs are so happy to be out and working you can feel... More
