Sun Peaks Resort

The mountain trio of Tod, Sundance, and Morrisey encircle Sun Peaks’ slope-side, pedestrian-only village. The resort’s interior BC location provides frequent bluebird powder days. Choice abounds with 135 runs, long cruisers, deep steeps, incredible tree skiing, and an enormous top-to-bottom terrain park. Check out the immaculately groomed Nordic trail network, head out with a team of Alaskan huskies on a dogsledding tour, or enjoy an on-mountain evening fondue.

  • Jan 8, 2019: “This is our second visit to Sun Peaks and we stayed at the Hearthstone Lodge located right on the hill. Ski in ski out. Lots of fantastic restaurants to choose from - Powder Hounds Restaurant, Cahility Creek Kitchen and Tap Room, Voyageur Bistro just to name a few. Excellent service and a variety of local & BC craft beers. Lots of fun shopping too! The skiing was amazing with 4 mountains to choose from there are runs for every level. The ski school is second to none. Had the best lesson ever at a resort with Doug. Very knowledgeable and easy to understand instructions. Finds the right terrain for what you need to work on...made it plain fun! Highly recommend this resort for families, couples or individuals. You can jump in to the ski host groups both in the morning and the afternoon. You may even get an opportunity to meet Nancy Greene-Rainer and ski with her. Sun Peaks grooming is the best I have seen at any resort as well as the non groomed runs are fun!” 0
  • Jan 2, 2019: “I’m skeptical about making this post, as I don’t want everyone to know what an incredible gem Sun Peaks is! In fairness to readers, I need to fess up that my wife and I now live here. It is the most wonderful, welcoming community I’ve ever been part of. In fact, based on the sheer number of people formerly from Whistler that now live at Sun Peaks, it’s clear that Sun Peaks is a magical place. Let start with the skiing. During the busiest week of the year (Christmas week) I had to wait in a lift line for 8 minutes. This was incredibly busy from my perspective but absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things. The hill has a diverse range of terrain and is great for everyone, from the first time beginner to the advanced back country skier. The ski school caters to skiers and riders of all levels and is very cost effective. The Sun Hosts provide FREE mountain tours catering to those wanting either green, blue or black runs (note that this is not typical - many other hills only cater to blue and black skiers and also expect big tips for the service. Not at Sun peaks!) There is an amazing adaptive ski program that caters to those needing special help an attention in order to ski. It’s an outstanding program! Every Friday, there’s a Friday Race Series for anyone interested in joining. We watched the big air competition on New Year’s Eve, followed by the moonlight torch run and fireworks show! There is so much to do on the hill! Restaurants and bars - there are tons of great places at Sun Peaks - here’s a few of our favourites (in no particular order) Bottoms - it’s the young, hip locals bar with great food! Try the salt and pepper chicken wings Masa’s - awesome Poutine and great clubhouse sandwich’s Balacco’s cafe - amazing pastries Voyageur Bistro - our absolute favourite resturant on the hill! Outstanding menu! There’s tons of other activities on the hill including a full sized hockey/skating rink, work out gym at Black Beaver Athletic, hiking, snow shoeing and Nordic skiing. If you need any advice on where to stay, or rent, what the ski in/ski outs are like from various locations, I’m happy to help out! ” 1
  • Jan 1, 2019: “I spent 4 days here on our first visit to Sun Peaks. Overall had a great experience. The area is huge, and I hardly skied the same run twice in 4 days. Lots of blue runs, many of which I would rate as green. Many black runs I would rate as blue. As a result it is not the most challenging hill, but is a good choice for families and intermediate skiers. The new Orient chair doesn’t seem to service much terrain of interest. The Morrisey runs are a good choice for intermediate skiers, and no lift line. Runs are well sign posted. I was very impressed with the food quality and choices at the mid-mountain chalet. The biggest annoyance for me was the ticketing system. They want you to buy online ahead of time (not the day of!), but then you still have to go and line up to actually get your tickets. I’ve never seen a resort with a slower and clumsier system to buy your lift tickets. Despite that, a good experience.” 2
