Sun Peaks Resort Launches Online Dynamic Ticket Pricing

Sun Peaks Resort is extremely excited to announce the launch of online, advanced day ticket sales for alpine skiing, using a dynamic pricing model. As of today, pre-purchased, date specific tickets at discounted rates for skiing or riding at Canada’s Second largest ski area will be available for purchase online. Tickets available on this platform are guaranteed to be at great rates for an outstanding day on the slopes. 

“This is an innovative new way to save money on lift tickets and we wanted an option to reward our guests for planning in advance. Our new online store does exactly that with pre purchased discount lift tickets,” says Aidan Kelly, Director of Sales and Marketing for Sun Peaks Resort. 

Guests will be able to realize significant savings through advanced purchases online. The platform will adjust pricing and quantities in real time throughout the season. Following this dynamic pricing model, ticket price will fluctuate based on time of season and consumer demand. Tickets through the online store will be date specific and typically priced significantly below the regular window rate to offer incentives for guests to make the advance purchase. A limited number of tickets will be available at each price point, creating added motivation for guests to purchase as early as possible. 

The resort expects this new ticketing option will broaden the market appeal and allow more guests the opportunity to enjoy a world class Sun Peaks experience. 

“It’s no secret that costs have risen in the ski industry over the years, it’s the nature of the business. At Sun Peaks, we are really trying to strike a balance between managing these costs while at the same time offering great value with an exceptional product to our guests,” says Kelly.

Over 100 Alpine Trails and 10 Chairlifts Open on Thursday, November 26!

Thanks to abundant snowfall over the past few days, Sun Peaks' three mountains are in excellent condition with great coverage, and we're poised to open additional terrain and lifts over the next couple days!

Thursday, November 26, will see the Burfield chairlift opening for the winter season, delivering skiers and riders 882 vertical metres into the high alpine of Mt. Tod. Ten lifts will be turning and over 100 alpine trails will be open across 3 mountains, offering top-to-bottom skiing. As of Thursday morning, alpine lift tickets will be full price.

We hope you enjoy what's shaping up to be a stellar early season at Sun Peaks, see you on the mountain!

Sun Peaks Sneak Peek: Grand Prize Helicopter Sightseeing Tour

The grand prize winners of our Sun Peaks Sneak Peek pre-season contest rolled into the resort on the evening of November 19, just as the village was buzzing with excitement for opening day the following morning, November 20. Prize-winner Jill and lucky confidant Phil hail from the Lower Mainland of this fine province, and this was their first time hopping into one of these nimble birds.

After enjoying fresh turns all morning it was time to take to the sky, and the weather couldn't have been better for Jill and Phil's maiden flight!

Fresh snow on the trees and a bright, bluebird day illuminated the surroundings. Although the tour flew over the entire resort from Mt. Morrisey to the high country around McGillivray lake and beyond, the alpine of Mt. Tod was what truly stood out.

As the tour came to an end we looped back around to the east, for a beautiful view of the resort as we approached our landing area. 

After touching down and exiting the machine with the obligatory ducking-run as seen in so many ski and snowboard films, Jill and Phil left with ear-to-ear grins and one more item checked off their bucket lists, "Thank you so much for the amazing opportunity to experience the magic of Sun Peaks. The helicopter tour gave us a breathtaking view of the resort on the most beautiful day with a clear blue sky. Our luxurious hotel was right at the base of the slopes, and it was awesome to enjoy the excellent snow conditions."

Nancy Greene International Race Centre Now Open!

The Nancy Greene International Race Centre opened for action yesterday on Monday, November 9, 2015. Slopes crews have been working around the clock to prepare OSV for the first teams, and the resulting corduroy has been getting rave reviews out there!

With OSV now in action, snowmaking will be focused on filling in the remainder of the race course on lower Chute over the next days. It's not all being pumped out of our snowmaking reservoir, though, the natural stuff at the Top of the World is looking pretty inviting as well!

Stay tuned as conditions develop leading up to opening day for winter lift operations - Saturday, November 21!

Autumn Update from Sun Peaks Resort

The summer season at Sun Peaks, surprisingly, isn’t all about summer for those behind the scenes. While resort guests were enjoying epic mountain views from the hiking trails, pinning it through the Bike Park, and shooting for the fastest time on North America’s first Mountain Cross Cart course, we’ve been out there prepping the mountain for another big winter with loads of improvements!

West Morrisey Additions
West Morrisey has two new runs on the roster; In Tatters and Wringer, continuing with the laundromat theme for this steep aspect of the mountain.

In Tatters is a work in progress and will require a significant snow base to be open. We ask that you respect closures this winter as many hazards remain under the snow. Wringer, however, has been cleared and graded and is looking pretty darn fun! A classic Morrisey ski run, Wringer starts with a relatively mellow top third which progresses into an intermediate mid-section, dropping into a 60% pitch on the lower run with great fall line and pronounced rollers. Lint Trap, which was introduced last winter, has also recieved its final grading and will be excellent skiing this season, flowing right into Tumble Dry and Static Cling Return.

Skiers are still encouraged to take Static Cling Return back to the Morrisey lift when skiing the western aspect of this mountain, or you can skate back to the Burfield chairlift base from Tumble Dry, but not wringer. Otherwise, check the shuttle schedule at Guest Services for a lift back! 

Nordic Trail Network Improvements
The biggest change you’ll find on the Nordic trails this winter is a reroute on the start of McGillivray Lake Trail, which previously required two road crossings and a shared alpine connector which was difficult for beginner skiers, families, and skiers with dogs. The beginning of this trail has been rerouted to run south of Parking Lot #5, snake through the golf course and back onto the existing McGillivray Lake trail close to the entrance to Whiskey Jack, without any road crossings.

Chickadee has been added as a connector between Raven Ramble and Blue Grouse for better connectivity. Much of the network has been widened for easier and more effective grooming, less overhanging limbs in your face and associated debris on the tracks, and as a result a better ski experience!

A Nordic terrain park, you say? The name’s a bit deceiving, although we’d love to see freestyle Nordic take off in Sun Peaks! The new Nordic Terrain Park will be located in Parking Lot #5 next to the toboggan area, providing a terrain-based beginner area to assist instructors with first timers.  

Summer Grooming
Our summer slopes crew spends the warmer months grooming the slopes beneath the snow, maybe you’ve even seen the slope-specific lawnmower (for lack of a better term) turning steeps into fairways? This summer all of Mt. Morrisey has been brushed, as well as Crystal Run and many of the runs accessed by the Sunburst chairlift. That means we can open earlier, with less snow, and stay open longer no matter what Mother Nature throws our way.

Rambler has been widened at a crucial “pinch point” which has always resulted in thinner snow coverage in the area, and a stretch of Highway 22 to mid-Burfield has been fixed to allow earlier snow cat access. Grand Return has been re-contoured in some trouble spots to allow for better snow coverage and grooming, and the addition of a new snow cat to the grooming fleet means fresh cord into the infinite future.  

Learning Zone Surface Lift
Last winter we added a new Learning Zone skier's right of the Sunburst chairlift, to utilize a grade just about perfect for beginner lessons. To make this zone even more productive, we've added a new surface lift over the summer months for improved access. Sun Peaks has always been a perfect place to learn to ski or ride, this addition just makes it that much better!

Opening day for winter operations is just around the corner, see you for first chair on November 21!

Sponsored by go2HR, BC’s tourism human resource association, this award recognizes a British Columbia tourism employer that has upheld high standards of excellence in human resources and people management practices.

Sun Peaks Resort is a four season destination resort located 45 minutes northeast of Kamloops, BC. With over 300,000 skier visits each year Sun Peaks is now the second largest ski area in Canada, employing up to 470 staff in peak season. The company is driven by four effective employment practices: communication, training, health and safety, recognition and appreciation. Sun Peak initiates these practices through the following examples:

  • Encourage engagement and conversation about new ideas and goals through mid-season reviews and fireside chats.
  • Provide training workshops on recognized certifications such as FOODSAFE and First Aid.
  • Department specific training to learn daily tasks, hazards and risks and how to avoid them.
  • Encourage peer to peer recognition as well as host monthly staff appreciation nights.
By executing these practices, Sun Peaks has created a strong community and organizational culture that achieved a 50% retention rate for seasonal employees in the 2014-15 winter season.
