SUN PEAKS

 

Sun Peaks

Sun Peaks is the second largest ski area in Canada and has an abundance of sunshine between regular dry snowfalls.  Sun Peaks is a charming, ski-in/ski-out village with three mountain peaks featuring a variety of terrain, including two alpine bowls, cruising green and blue runs, steep and deep and gladed stashes loaded with powder. This resort really does have something for everyone.

Sun Peaks is renowned for being a family friendly destination and has a number of activities to cater to the young (or young at heart) including dogsledding, tubing, snowmobiling, ice skating and sleigh rides, just to name a few.

For some more adult fun why not time your trip with the winter wine festival, taking place on 13-22 January 2017.

Known for:

  • Family friendly
  • Snow ghosts
  • Village charm

How to get there

Fly

The closest airport is Kamloops. When flying from Australia one stopover is required, the fastest route is to Vancouver (YVR) and then onto Kamloops (YKA). Flight time is approximately 14 hours to Vancouver and 50 minutes from Vancouver to Kamloops. Vancouver makes a great stopover, we love spending a couple of days exploring the city before heading to the slopes.
