Sun Peaks has a great ski area with many runs and many chair lifts. If you want the niceness of Whistler, but on a smaller, less expensive trip, Sun Peaks is a great choice. Has man options during the summer too.

Lots to see & do during the summer months. Explore the village, good places to eat. Take the team up the mountain. Mountain biking, go carts, tramboline with bungy. Nice to relax with a coffee & take in the scenery!

Good hiking during this time of the year .Saw a deer on one of the ski runs . Always something going on from concerts for the family to bungy trampoline for the kids. Not that crazy but busy at different times of the day.

Sun peaks has something to offer every day of the year. A winter wonderland or a summer escape! Nice restaurants and charming cafes. Only 40 minutes from Kamloops, BC.

Whistler it is not! Sun Peaks is closer though, only about 45 minutes from Kamloops. I can't see Sun Peaks becoming a more international destination unless the roads are improved, among other things. It needs a bigger and safer route to get in and out quickly, especially in the winter when the winding road can get tricky. It's a great... More

We visited this resort area in the middle of summer, so there was no skiing involved. There are lots of other activities, however. We took a passive role with our ride up the chairlift being the most strenuous of our activity. This trip up the mountain was impressive for the views, which also included watching the younger folks roar down... More

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your camping experience at Sun Peaks. Due to the construction of our new ice rink we have had to move the camping area from its traditional spot, meaning that it is now a bit further away from amenities such as water and showers. This is... More

Family-friendly, dog-friendly. Aside from a few weeks in the spring and fall shoulder seasons, the village is open for business. Good variety of lodgings and restaurants. Hiking and mountain biking trails for all abilities. Good variety of ski terrain. Typically short lift lines and dry snow.

Thank Brock N
