Downhill skiing and snowboarding are major winter activities in Kamloops since the development of Sun Peaks Resort.
Located about 45 minutes from downtown Kamloops, Sun Peaks is a year-round destination with a range of outdoor recreation opportunities, including snowboarding, downhill and cross-country skiing in winter, and in summer, hiking and mountain biking.
However, Sun Peaks is not the only winter fun destination in Kamloops: Harper Mountain (a local favourite) features uncrowded family-friendly slopes, while, further north, Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing offers exciting heli-skiing and boarding.
Skiing at Sun Peaks
At Sun Peaks Resort, ski or snowboard Tod Mountain's open bowls, Sundance Mountain's groomed cruisers, or Mount Morrisey's glades. The longest run stretches 8km/5mi from the top of Tod Mountain to the resort village. In the past, the Austrian National Ski Team has trained at Sun Peaks prior to World Cup season.
