This is a great place to take a weekend retreat. Summer Concerts,Mountain biking, golf, hiking & great restaurants & Hotels. Chairlift runs daily to the top of the mountain to view incredible wild flowers walk down or take the chair back. Don't forget to try the formula one gravity go-carts. 4 rides for 25 bucks.

Have always enjoyed skiing here the village is quaint the hotels great. Whistler gets all the hype but this is just as good and a lot cheaper. 1 hr out of Kamloops with shuttle service available. Many acclaimed summer activities such as Golf Music festivals and so much more you won't be disappointed.

We had a great day at Sun Peaks! We enjoyed activities in the kids area, a chairlift ride up the mountain, and a short hike. A highlight was seeing the sled dogs. We had good food from Mountain High Pizza and Hoppla's burger place. I would recommend a summer day trip!

rented a ski in and out chalet for the weekend. The village is small and friendly. One of the nicest ski mountain that I ever had skied on. It's all powder snow. Good slopes for snow boarders also. We ate a pub restaurant and the food was very good.

Sun Peaks is a world class ski hill. The mountain has a lot of ski area and doesn't get too busy like some other places. It's just close enough to town to make it an easy day trip. I cannot comment on quality of powder as I haven't done much off-piste / backcountry. I've skied here 4 or 5 times... More

All the hotels we have stayed in are nice and comfortable. During the summer there is a farmers market in the main... More

Lovely place, European feel. You feel like you're in the alps. We love this place in summer and winter. Through the summer months there is a farmers market and music playing etc. Some great restaurants and a pizza place. We always visit Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.

Visited this so area over Christmas 2015 and had a ball. Skied on Christmas Day which was an amazing experience. So many options to explore and great food options. Shuttle from Kamloops does not run every day and this is very hard to get information on. Had to hire a car for two days as there are no cost effective... More

The only thing golfing in May at Sun Peaks is golfing in the rain. Which meant that they don't allow golf cart because of the muddy terrain. Pro Shop Service was very poor & the staff was not properly trained for the golf season. They really should have provided a lower greens fee for the early season & no cart... More

First off, there's no on-street parking. Strictly enforced. Make sure you know what to do or where to go before parking your car. Facilities are minimal but good. Ski lifts modern and reasonable. Skiing excellent
