For those who like to earn their turns, Sun Peaks offers plenty of cross country riding options. The stunning lift-access Altitude XC trail traverses through the alpine wildflower meadows, forests, and peaks of Mt. Tod before reaching tranquil Tod Lake. Altitude starts from the top of the Sunburst chairlift and loops back to connect with more trails in the Bike Park for an epic descent back to the village or out to McGillivray Lake in the valley.
Outside of the Bike Park, the Mt. Morrisey cross country trail network offers up a mix of doubletrack and singletrack trails to explore free of charge. With trails to suit any level of rider, it’s a great option for a relaxing evening pedal or a family ride out to McGillivray Lake. The Morrisey cross country network is usually ready to ride in early to mid June and closes once the snow arrives in late October.
Looking for a big day in the saddle? Ambitious riders can connect all three of our peaks to complete the unofficial ‘Sun Peaks Epic’ ride- scroll down for more details.
Please note: a valid lift ticket or pass is required to ride any of the Bike Park trails, including Altitude and Big Rock Ride.
