Sun Peaks, BC - Canadian Living Magazine announced their ‘10 Best Ski Destinations’ today with Sun Peaks ranking 2nd for its popularity with families and seasoned skiers and its abundant opportunities for alpine and Nordic skiing. Sun Peaks finds itself in good company with Whistler Blackcomb taking number one.
Based on a formula including reader and guest impressions, ski enthusiasts’ advice and their own favourite places, Sun Peaks is excited to be endorsed by another reader based poll.
“Leading North American travel publications like Canadian Living and Conde Nast Traveller have recognized the multi-faceted benefits that set the Sun Peaks experience above others,” says Christopher Nicolson, President of Tourism Sun Peaks.
“Massive ski terrain and plentiful dry snow are two critical assets to Sun Peaks’ reputation. But the quality and convenience of the ski-in ski-out village, diversity of shops and restaurants, and genuine friendliness of the locals are often unexpected by our guests. It quickly leads to a relaxed and home-like familiarity that is in large part why Sun Peaks’ single biggest market is the return guest.”
Also factored into the ranking is Sun Peaks’ non-ski and kid friendly activities and events.
“We are seeing more guests visit solely for winter activities such as cross country skiing, dogsledding, snowmobiling or snowshoeing,” says Nicolson. “It makes for a great winter holiday or a family gathering for those that do not ski or snowboard.”
