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.

We visited Sun Peaks several times and I rank it ahead of Silver Star, Big White and Apex Mountain (in that order). Our accommodation was at Trails Edge townhouse (#4) and it was stunning. Private garage and hot tub and 5 minute stroll to village centre. The skiing is non-stop due to no lift lines and there are three different mountains that all funnel into the well-organized village (which is themed similar to European tyrolean style). We can't emphasize enough how much our family enjoys the accommodation, village atmosphere and diversity of ski terrain. We have skied everywhere in BC and Sun Peaks is our favourite overall.

The resort feels like its brand new. Extensive ski trails. I gotta come back and ski Sun Peaks . . It sincerely looks awesome. There is a nice collection of hotels, condos, single family houses for rent and restaurants. There is not the Whistler vibe. Very few shops, little retail, etc. They do have a golf course. I was there in the first part of June, I thought the resort was closed . . Zero people . . I was there around 10am and was told many of the tour companies going to Jasper stay here for the night. Please don't get me wrong, the skiing looks great and the collection of buildings are great as well. Buttttt, do not come here thinking this a a small version of Whistler, it is not. If you are coming from Seattle, WOWWWWWWWW, its a great drive between Hope and the Resort, but if there is snow on the roads, add 2 or more additional hours to your estimated trip time . . The mountain passes . . Yes more than one!!
