Over 25 cm expected at Sun Peaks over the next few days
Skiers and snowboarders at Sun Peaks woke up to an abundance of light, dry powder snow this morning. Around 17cm of fresh snow accumulated in higher alpine areas of the resort, making for deep powder turns, face shots and amazing January ski conditions.
Intermittent snowfall is continuing throughout the day, adding to the phenomenal powder conditions on all three mountains at Sun Peaks. An additional 25cm of snowfall is forecast over the next few days, just in time for guests heading to enjoy Sun Peaks over the weekend. Temperatures are expected to hover around -5C.
Sun Peaks, located in the British Columbia’s Interior region, is known for its legendary light, dry and ‘easy to ski’ powder snow. Its geographic location is perfectly situated to receive snow from Pacific storm cycles once the system has cooled and at the same time provide protection from cold temperatures from the Rocky Mountains.
