1. Re: Drive time from Sun Peaks to Silver Star.

Easy three hour drive depending on if a major snow storm is happening. Very high travelled route so snow plows keep it open all the time.

http://www.mapquest.com/maps?1c=Sun+Peaks&1s=BC&2c=Vernon&2s=BC

Sunpeaks to Kamloops = 60 min.

Kamloops to Vernon = 90 min.

Vernon to Silver Star = 30 min.

I believe all these times are generous and are obviously snow driving dependant. Very easy getting to/from each location.

Attached map does not show the Vernon to Silver Star route but I am guessing that the Silver Star web site will have info.

Hope this helps :0)

Found two rental groups for you, have never rented vehicles so don't know pros/cons of either business.

Drive from Vernon to Kamloops goes through several small towns and farm/countrysides. On the shore of one lake and along a river. Kamloops is about 100,000 population and a larger community in BC. Drive from Kamloops to Sunpeaks mirrors above comments. Majority of the route is either two or four lane highway (80-100km speeds). I have driven the route probably close to a million times :0) so am not a great referrence to scenic qualities although I think it is good.

Hope this helps.
