In Sun Peaks, we're passionate about mountain biking
It was 22 years ago when we first started scraping trails into Tod Mountain by hand. Inspired by the fast emerging scene in the biking mecca of nearby Kamloops, we never imagined we were building the first stages of a world-class bike park. Over the years our trails became steeper and more technical, pushing bikes and their riders to their limits.
While raw singletrack remains at the core of our riding experience, times have changed and the Bike Park has become a home for all. We embrace the rowdiness that draws riders here, from core riders to pro athletes - testing themselves on infamous lines like Insanity One, Gnar-Boom, and Smitty’s Steeps - but like all of us when we reach our 20's, we're going through a period of evolution and growth. Our approach is 'come one, come all', as we continue our evolution, adding new trails built for every level of progression, from beginner, to berm-rider, root launcher, and ego-checker!
New in 2022, next to our original Bike Park on Tod Mountain, a second mountain of adventure has evolved and will be opening. The Sundance Express will haul riders to the top of a new machine-built trail network on Sundance Mountain, adding six new trails with 19 additional kilometers to the Sun Peaks Bike Park riding experience. Read more about this exciting expansion.
Across the valley, Sun Peaks Recreational Trail Association (SPRTA) is the driving force behind 12km of new pedal-access enduro style trails opening on our third mountain - Mt. Morrisey. This adds to the existing free to access trails and recent trail developments SPRTA has been working on in the valley.
WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT
BUILT FOR PROGRESSION
Beginners will love our carpet lift-access Progression Park, giving even the freshest of shredders a taste of lift-access riding. When you’re ready to extend your ride, take the Sundance Express to two new beginner freeride trails, and with some more practice, the whole network will soon be in reach! Around here, progression isn’t just for beginners. With an extensive network of intermediate freeride and technical trails on both Sundance and Tod Mountains, and some legendary advanced and expert trails to boot, you’re soon to be turning heads all over the Park!
EMBRACING THE FLOW
Growing from our techy roots are new and improved lift-access freeride trails for all on Tod Mountain, starting with the 9km 'Level Up' built for all riders to enjoy, to our instant classic intermediate jump trail 'Canada Line', our newly extended fan favourite ‘Bermalade’, right up to our legendary advanced trails like ‘Steam Shovel’. The six new trails on Sundance include two black, two blue and two green, sliding into the overall progression rating among existing trails. With a total of 15 flow trails between both mountains, there's berm rides and air-time for all!
STEEP AND ROWDY
For those looking to step it up another notch, our tech trail network has roots, rocks, drops, and rowdiness for all levels, and is built to thrill from the top to bottom of Tod Mountain. From beginner to intermediate, advanced and expert, we have a whopping 23 lift-access tech trails for riders to send it on. Future phases on Sundance Mountain will see builds including singletrack tech, paying homage to our roots and where we’ve grown from
A PEDAL-ACCESS NETWORK IS BORN
As the lift-access Bike Park evolves, so does mountain biking throughout all of Sun Peaks, with a growing network of pedal-access trails spreading across the valley. New for 2022, riders will be able to access the summit of Mt. Morrisey thanks to the hard work of the Sun Peaks Recreational Trail Association, a dedicated group of community trail builders. New trails include a 6km climb trail, 2km mountaintop viewpoint trail, and 4km downhill trail.
We truly believe riders of all levels will find their new favourite trail in Sun Peaks, so join us in 2022 to discover yours!
