Mountain Cross Cart Summer Update #1

Last year Sun Peaks Resort unleashed a brand new activity to the summer roster of gravity-fed offerings, North America’s very first Mountain Cross Cart Course. Totally new to the continent, there were more than a few sideways glances as the 512m course was flagged, graded, paved and painted. That hesitation was soon forgotten as the platter lift started turning to deliver the first drivers to top of the course, offering speeds up to 35km/h down the winding slope carved out of the lower reaches of Mt. Tod. 

If you happened to make it up to Canada’s Alpine Village last summer, maybe to take in one of our acclaimed Free Concert Series or take a swing at BC’s highest elevation golf course, you likely heard shouts of excitement and squealing tires more than once during your stay. If you haven’t seen these in action, check them out:

What has been acquainted to downhill go-carts are fun for anyone looking for a thrill - whether you choose to see how fast you can rail the corners or meander down while enjoying the view, once at the top you’re "in the driver’s seat". The carts are equipped with disc breaks and 4 point harnesses to keep you secure, however to keep everyone safe you must be 14 years of age and 150cm to participate. This exciting experience won’t break the bank either, $25 scores you four laps to record your best time. See who clocks the best time of your friends or better yet, rent the track out exclusively for your next group function by contacting our group sales department today.

New this summer to the MCC scene is a freshly paved up-track. This improvement over the previous gravel will not only make the lift-accessed ascent much smoother, but it will keep the track free of excess dirt and dust for a little added grip around the corners.

The course has been open for a couple weekends now and starting this Friday, June 24, when the Sunburst chairlift opens for hiking and biking, Sun Peaks’ Mountain Cross Cart will be open daily from 11:00am to 8:00pm until September 5, with reduced weekend hours of operation running into the fall.

Don’t miss this exciting summer activity during your next visit to Canada’s Alpine Village!

April 21, 2016  The lineup has been finalized for the final weekend of the free outdoor Summer Concert Series taking place August 19-21, as Sun Peaks Resort welcomes Alan Doyle and The Beautiful Gypsies.

In addition to a successful solo career that saw the recent 2015 release of the critically acclaimed album "So Let's Go", Alan Doyle is best known for his work with legendary Canadian folk rock band Great Big Sea.

The group will visit Sun Peaks Resort as part of their 2016 tour, which boasts sold out shows across North America.

"Hot off the heels of our announcement for Sam Roberts Band to headline the first weekend of our Summer Concert Series on July 8, we are delighted to host Alan Doyle and The Beautiful Gypsies to close out the show in late August", says Aidan Kelly, Director of Sales and Marketing for Sun Peaks Resort.

Sun Peaks Extends Chairlift Hours for Summer Months
March 31, 2016  Sun Peaks Resort is thrilled to announce extended lift operation hours this summer. Turning daily from 10:00am – 7:00pm, the Sunburst chairlift will be open for mountain biking, hiking and sightseeing from June 24th to September 5th.

Extending lift operations by two hours daily creates additional opportunities for guests to experience Sun Peaks Resort from 6,000 feet while enjoying lift accessed activities. Whether it`s biking, hiking or just enjoying a leisurely stroll through a meadow of Sun Peaks` world famous alpine blossoms, the extended hours allows for more fun in the sun for everyone!

“The decision to extend lift hours until 7pm daily is something we are extremely excited about. Sun Peaks is a very popular destination for international guests touring throughout Western Canada and the extended hours provide more opportunity to enjoy a signature Sun Peaks experience during their visit,” says Aidan Kelly, Director of Sales and Marketing at Sun Peaks Resort. 

“Additionally, our local market in the Kamloops and surrounding areas will have increased options for late afternoon activities in their favourite backyard playground,” says Kelly.

On weekends (Fri-Sun) all summer long, the Sunburst Lodge at mid mountain will be open for guests and will include new product offerings such as Okanagan wine and food pairings featured during twilight hours.  The cooler afternoon temperatures and stunning scenery will complement an already tremendous experience for those looking to relax with a beverage on the mid-mountain patio.
