If you're looking for a relaxing afternoon to take in the beauty of Sun Peaks and the surrounding area, we suggest taking a ride on Sunburst chairlift on Tod Mountain.

A scenic 15 to 20 minute ride will take you up to mid-mountain at an elevation of 1,850 metres (6,069 feet). From here you can enjoy a leisurely stroll of the area and enjoy the patio at the Sunburst Lodge (closed for renovations, alternative amenities will be available). Bring a pack lunch, take in the views, and soak up the sun.

This area is also the trail head for the 12 designated, signed alpine hiking trails. For a casual walk, we recommend Vista Trail (#1 on the hiking trail map). It's a 1.3km flat loop that takes you past alpine wildflowers (when in season, mid-July to mid-August) and to a couple of viewpoints. 

Summer chairlift tickets for sightseeing on Tod Mountain can be purchased online here. You can also purchase tickets in-resort at Guest Services located in the Village Day Lodge and at Elevation Bike, Ski & Board located in the Sun Peaks Grand Hotel.
