Sun Peaks Resort in short

  • Pedestrianized village centre
  • Relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere
  • Jam-packed event calendar

The ski resort of Sun Peaks is situated near the city of Kamloops in interior British Columbia, Canada. The resort has a decent-sized but walkable village nestled right next to the slopes. There is a healthy smattering of events throughout the winter but not much of a crazy party scene, as this resort mostly attracts families. That being said, night owls might be interested in a fondue and live music evening at the Sunburst Lodge.

Sun Peaks is Canada’s second-largest ski area, with 4,270 acres of terrain. The skiing here is best for intermediate skiers, but neither beginners nor experts will be left wanting. Fresh powder abounds but if you’re keen to hit the slopes before everybody else, you can take advantage of a Fresh Tracks Breakfast. Winter events include an annual wine festival and a family-friendly cross-country race. Accommodation at Sun Peaks is mostly ski-in, ski-out.
