Sun Peaks Resort is stoked to be hosting the 2016 Canadian National Downhill Championships this summer for the third year in a row in our legendary Bike Park! This year we are excited to offer a new top-to bottom 100% single track, technically challenging race course starting at the Sunburst patio featuring sections of Insanity One and Honey Drop. This race will have citizen classes, so everyone can get in on the action and ride the same course as the pros.
Check out this preview run of the course by Sun Peaks Bike Patroller Pip.
