The Ultimate Sun Peaks Ski Guide

You know a ski resort caters to families when there’s a public school up on its slopes. Such is the case with Sun Peaks which, in 2015, became Canada’s second-largest ski and snowboard destination after a 200-hectare expansion on two of its three mountains.

Where to Ski Next: Sun Peaks, B.C.
By Jess Thomson, Ski Magazine, posted 8, November 2015
There is no panty tree at Sun Peaks Resort. For anyone who’s skied a major resort since, say, 1980, this may seem like a serious oversight, but Sun Peaks, which holds bragging rights as Canada’s second-largest ski area (behind only Whistler Blackcomb), has defined itself not by al fresco vodka bars or rowdy restaurants at the base area, but by what’s up top—reliably good snow, generous high-quality grooming, and endless tree skiing, much of it steep. For those of us whose vacation priorities focus more on interesting pistes than on getting pissed, Sun Peaks is the new Holy Grail.
Secret Snow Business
By Megan Arkinstall, posted 27, October 2015
We’ve got a secret to share with you. There’s a little ski resort that you probably haven’t heard of hidden in the south-central interior of British Columbia, halfway between the Rockies and the Coastal mountain ranges. It’s nowhere near as crowded as the big names of Whistler or Banff (read: no queues for the lifts and wide runs practically to yourself), with a small and relaxed European-style village of pastel-coloured, low-rise gabled roof buildings.
Spoiled Brats
By Pat Lynch, Ski Canada Magazine, posted 23, October 2014
It was somewhere between the third and fourth doughnut that I decided my editor was probably right—delivering an $80,000 Porsche Cayman from Kamloops to Calgary in the first week of March might not have been an entirely idiotic idea. Quixotic, perhaps, but it also could have proved to be a stroke of genius. Sure, the roadster might have been tiny enough that we couldn’t actually bring any of our ski gear (goggles, boots and some spare gitch excluded) on this killer Ski Canada assignment, and there was a good chance it was going to be dumping on Rogers Pass (which gets, oh, about 10 metres of snow a year), but we did have brand-spanking-new snow tires and this was a fancy-ass Porsche.
Sun Peaks Partners with Local Bike Pro Dylan Sherrard for Shred Hard Summer Bike Camps
By Tourism Sun Peaks, posted 13, July 2016

Want to learn to bike like a pro? Now you can! Sun Peaks Resort is thrilled to announce an official partnership with Kamloops-based professional mountain bike athlete Dylan Sherrard. Dylan’s relationship with the resort has been evolving for years with steadily increased involvement in the Bike Park and specifically multi-day freeride camps, culminating in the launch of the Shred Hard Summer Camp series for summer 2016. The Shred Hard Summer Camps schedule is diverse to suit any schedule. The lineup includes the Shred Hard Sick Weekend Camp on July 9-10, Shred Hard Summer Camp - a five day program from July 11-15, and Shred Hard Sunday School for younger shredders running four weeks straight starting on July 17. The Sun Peaks Bike Park opens on Friday, June 24, offering lift access to an enormous trail network spanning all ability levels and the entire spectrum of riding styles from cross country to downhill.

Ski School: Learning on a Higher Level
By Tourism Sun Peaks, posted 13, July 2016

Established in 2010, the Sun Peaks Education Society (SPES) set a goal to offer the most stimulating educational experience in B.C. to children in a spectacular mountainside community. With the assistance of Sun Peaks Resort LLP, and the Sun Peaks Mountain Resort Municipality, a school site for the Discovery Centre for Balanced Education (DCBE) was secured at the top of the Village Platter lift. In its inaugural year the DCBE passed 18 students, from kindergarten to grade five, through its doors with exceptional results. Five years later, SPES is working with The Kamloops-Thompson School District 73 to offer a blended schooling model to more than 60 students in Grades 7 through 12. Changing names from the ‘Discovery Centre for Balanced Education’ to the ‘Sun Peaks Secondary Academy’ is not the only development new to the 2015/16 winter season. This year the elementary program is adding an additional full-time instructor to account for the influx of registered students. With perks such as “Friday’s off” for Ski Club training and enjoying the slopes during lunch breaks, this mountainside school is quickly gaining in popularity and showing no signs of slowing down.

Adaptive Sports Leads the Way for Differently Abled
By Tourism Sun Peaks, posted 13, July 2016

Adaptive Sports at Sun Peaks (ASSP) is a non-profit organization whose focus is to provide opportunities for people with a wide range of disabilities to participate in adaptive snow sports and recreational programs. Lead by Paralympian, Head Coach and Manager of Race Development, Danny Letain, ASSP is heading into their 9th season of operation. With a heavy focus on personalized training, ASSP utilizes between two to three instructors per student, assisting both skiers and boarders alike. Based upon the popularity of the program and an increased demand within the sector, the organization has doubled the number of instructors it employs within the past four years. While there has been a steady rise in lessons for both local and regional students, there has also been an influx of international students coming from all corners of the globe such as New Zealand, Australia, United Kingdom and the United States. Along with the accessible layout of Sun Peaks’ ski-through village, much of this interest can be attributed to the organization’s progressive approach, with courses such as the Race Development Program. Designed to take confident adaptive sports athletes to the next level, this program prepares students for the rigorous training required to excel at all levels of competition. 

From Grassroots to Backcountry Chutes
By Tourism Sun Peaks, posted 13, July 2016
PROGRESSION: FROM GRASSROOTS TO BACKCOUNTRY CHUTES Sometimes the smallest skiers need the largest considerations - a fact known by many of Sun Peaks’ talented ski instructors. It’s for this reason Sun Peaks is opening a new and improved learning area for tots, 3 – 7 years of age. This expanded and more comfortable learning environment is located next to the base of the Sunburst chairlift, near the Sun Peaks Sports School and Sundance Learning Centre, which is convenient for both parents and instructors. The gentle slope includes a carpet lift making it easy and efficient to master those important first turns! The close proximity to Bento’s Day Lodge and its amenities is another benefit of the new location. Building on the fundamentals established in the grassroots programs, the ski school picks up where it left off with new programs aimed at accommodating budding adolescents. Teenagers are individuals – just ask them – so Sun Peaks knows what works for one won’t work for all. And with new courses designed specifically for ages 13 to 18 years of age, the Sun Peaks Sports School is offering exactly what they need. With the Rider Improvement Program, (or RIP CREW), teens will grow by learning new skills and building confidence in every area, from powder filled glades in the Teen’s All Mountain Program, to boxes and jumps in the Teen’s Terrain Park Program. Courses take advantage of the mountain’s diverse terrain as well as its famous top-to-bottom progression based terrain park. Teens will meet at a designated spot on the mountain separate from the other ski lessons and courses, giving the teens a more independent feel from the start.
First North American Mountain Cross Cart course comes to Sun Peaks
By Tourism Sun Peaks, posted 23, April 2015
Sun Peaks’ visitors will find an exciting new means of descending the mountain this summer. A brand new Mountain Cross Cart (MCC) course has been constructed on ‘Sunbeam’ ski run paralleling the Platter Lift, the first of its kind in North America. Nine MCC Parks are currently operated around the world including Sweden, Norway, Estonia and Finland. The new track is 512 metres long with a vertical descent of 52 metres and will provide an average speed of 35 km/h. Despite high speeds and a winding, gravity-fed course, the carts offer precise control and a high level of safety thanks to powerful disc brakes, four-point seat belts, roll bars and padded seats. To add an element of competition, runs will be timed allowing participants to race the clock or rival friends for the fastest descent. Sun Peaks’ MCC Action Park will open to the public in late June 2015.
