We just got home from one our best family vacations! Sun peaks was a great ski destination for us! We have a 4 yr old and a 7 yr old who have never skied before and it has also been a LONG time since my husband and I have been on skis too!
The hotel was in the perfect location for us! Our room looked out to the platter run so when our 4 yr old was done for the day we could catch glimpses of daddy and our oldest coming down the slopes! Having the kitchen in the room was great! Breakfast, lunch and dinner in our room was very handy! We stopped at costco in Kamloops and picked up some pre- made salads and meals! The kitchen was stocked with dishes, utensils, frying pan, pots, glasses....everything you need to whip up a little meal. Plus a fridge, microwave, stove top, sink with dish soap and dish towels. But don't forget to grab a pizza from "Mile High Pizza" one night! I would get a 1 bedroom suite next time instead to having 2 beds in the same room, just for a little more room and especially if you are like us and your kids go to bed early! Bring earplugsif you are a light sleeper! You can hear doors opening and closing, people walking in the hallways...and running! And if you have a room above the hot tub like we did you may get the drunk crowd chatting away about their great day of skiing! It didn't bother us as I travel with earplugs anyways! I like to be a well rested mom! LOL! Our kids slept great each night as a full day of fresh air wiped them out!
Downside of the hotel: The hotel could brush up on their building / cleaning maintenance a bit! the garbage cans in and around the building didn't seem to get emptied very often especially in the hot tub area where can and bottles were overflowing! Towels in the hot tub area were also not replenished frequently! The doors in the ladies washroom were missing, and the lock on the other stall was off, as well as the bathroom was very dirty, this was at 10am so it hadn't even been cleaned from the day before yet.
Be sure to bring a sled to pull any little ones on through the village as their little legs get tired, then you can stop at 1 of the many great coffee shops and enjoy the village life! You can always rent a sled from the ski shops if you need one! It would be handy to use to walk to the rec centre for a family swim or when going to the ice rink!
The platter night skiing was fun for the kids! As well as taking a break from skiing and going tubing! Children 6 and under are free for tubing!
Enjoy your vacation, only you can make the best of it! We sure did!
