Hardly a week passes during winter and summer without a festival or event taking place at Sun Peaks Resort.
From charity events to the Alpine Blossom Festival to the Wine and Culture Festival there is something for all ages. For the past three years Sun Peaks has hosted the Canada West region of the Porsche Club of America. In September, 2010, the resort will be the venue for the Porsche Club of America's national gathering, attracting Porsche owners from across Canada and the US.
The four-day Velocity Challenge brings together the world's fastest downhill skiers to race against the clock at speeds of up to 165km/102mi per hour. These speed skiers use 240cm/7.8ft long skis to maximize speed, and teardrop shaped helmets and latex suits to facilitate aerodynamics.
