Sun Peaks awarded second in Best Overall Resort in SBC Resort Guide Editors’ Choice AwardsOctober 24, 2013: Sun Peaks Resort and its mountain community has been ranked #2 in Canada’s Best Overall Resort category in the SBC Resort Guide, second only to Whistler. The rankings were released in timing with the Toronto Ski Show and published in the Editor’s Choice Awards in the new SBC Resort Guide Magazine. This announcement joins recent top accolades for Sun Peaks from Canadian Living Magazine, Ski Canada Magazine, Conde Nast Traveller and other respected travel and snow publications.
“…Sun Peaks serves up what’s promised and more. Where else can you stack legit slackcountry, proper tree runs, buttery groomers and top-to-bottom park laps? Mix in the deep snowfalls, non-existent lift lines, and ride-in/ride-out dining and lodging options…,” says Jesse Fox, Snowboard Canada Magazine’s managing editor, in the SBC Resort Guide.
Canadian resorts are ranked based on a survey of Snowboard Canada, SBC Skier, SBC Women’s Snowboard Annual and SBC Resort Guide magazine editors. Each editor awards each resort points in different categories, which are then tallied to produce the standings.
“To be recognized by a group of people so involved and knowledgeable in Canada’s ski and snowboard industry speaks volumes about the amenities, terrain and overall experience offered at Sun Peaks,” says Christopher Nicolson, president of Tourism Sun Peaks. “This winter more terrain will open, there are more flights to get here thanks to WestJet, and we have more camps and events throughout the winter. Each is a commitment to our guests as we strive to provide the finest resort experience in Canada.”
