Owner description: Whether you come for the diverse ski terrain or for the variety of summer activities, Sun Peaks is a haven for recreational fun in a three-mountain alpine area. Located in the Interior of British Columbia, Sun Peaks boasts Canada’s second largest ski area with 4,270 acres of terrain. With 6 meters of light, dry snow falling annually and over 2,000 hours of sun each year, guests enjoy spectacular winter conditions for downhill skiing, snowboarding and cross country skiing. Off the slopes, more winter adventure awaits with dog-sledding tours, snowmobile and snowshoe tours, horse-drawn carriage rides and more. Summer at Sun Peaks offers just as much recreational fun. Sun Peaks is home to BC’s highest elevation golf course. Guests can explore the alpine with lift-access hiking and world-class mountain biking trails, with opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, Segway tours and horseback riding. Sun Peaks’ vibrant European-style village is nestled at the base of Tod Mountain, Sundance and Mt. Morrisey. The village offers a wide selection of accommodations, restaurants and shopping boutiques.

SunPeaks outshines most competing ski areas in the Pacific Northwest - even Whistler. Queues are well managed and waits short. Something for everyone and very family friendly.

In the winter of corse you can ski and snowboard but in the summer you can bike or hike the trails and look at the beautiful flowers!!!!! It really is breathtaking! Sun Peaks is only 45min-1hour away from Kamloops so it's close and not hard to get to:) don't miss this

Sun Peaks Resort was just awesome. Stayed at Trail's Edge townhouses (#4) and the acocmmodation was excellent too. 3 moutnains all funnel into the one village which made getting around easy. Decent restaurants but not a lot of retail shopping. Best in BC outside of Whistler in my opinion.

The view is amazing with all kinds of hiking trails. There was nothing to dislike about this place at all. The village had many shops and restaurants.

I have been visiting Sun Peaks since 2008 and actually lived there from 2010 to 2011. It is very family orientated, with many events hosted during summer and winter.
Given the proximity to Kamloops and highway 16, it is very easily accessed. The road is not that windy compared to other ski areas, with the exception being one hair pin about 4km before the village.
The village is quite large compared to other resorts I have been too, having many restaurants, pubs and other businesses.
The only thing I don't like about it is, that they advertise it to be a four season playgournd, but for the most part, the place shuts down twice a year between the summer season and the winter season - the place becomes a ghost town.
