Cross Country Skiing Holidays
With more and more outdoor enthusiasts discovering our pristine trail network, Canada's Alpine Village has quietly evolved into a favourite Nordic destination.
Our unique location provides plenty of sunshine and perfect elevation for dry snow and consistent temperatures. Over 30 kilometers of impeccably groomed and track-set trails are accessible right from the village and your hotel. Truly unique to Sun Peaks, guests can hop aboard the Morrisey Express Chairlift for exceptional access to seemingly endless backcountry terrain and scenic mountain views off the Holy Cow trail. Or ski with the entire family—including the dog—on the pet-friendly route to McGillivray Lake Outpost warming hut. Enjoy a quick breather before an easy glide back to the village.
Applicable taxes will be added to all prices. Rates are in Canadian dollars. Prices may be subject to change without notice. Some restrictions may apply.
Nordic day passes include two rides up the Morrisey Express chairlift, taking skiers to the top of the Holy Cow trail. All ticket prices are per day.
