Sun Host Mountain Tours

Some of Canada's finest outdoor enthusiasts choose to call Sun Peaks home and love sharing their local knowledge with you; from the best fresh baking to those fabled hidden stashes! 

An unbeatable introduction to our vast terrain, offered complimentary, daily for all ability levels. We guarantee you'll have a blast while defeating the age-old adage. "No friends on a powder day".

Meet the Sun Hosts slopeside between the Sunburst chairlift and the Village Day Lodge and find the group for your ability level and terrain preferences. Just look for their big smiles and bright orange coats and signs. 

Participants must at the least be able to ski or ride green runs with confidence, making strong parallel turns. Sun Host tours are not a lesson, nor are they certified to offer instruction. Sun Hosts are not permitted to ski glade areas or on double black diamond runs with guests. All guests under the age of 18 interested in taking a tour must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times, or special arrangements can be made based on age and ability.

cold weather considerations

When the ambient temperature reaches around -23°C or colder, Sun Host tours may be affected. Please check in with the Sports School Sales Desk, or meet a resort representative at the designed meeting time and area for more information.

I would come back to Sun Peaks from New Zealand to see these helpful people, and because I know that my kids would be safe on the mountain...

 "Your Sun Host service was the best part of skiing here. It gave my children the independence to ski the mountain. The guides, Chase, Jim, Sigi, and Laurie were exceptional with all of us. If you asked me why I would come back to Sun Peaks from New Zealand, it would be to see these helpful people, and because I know that my kids would be safe on the mountain." – Kaye, New Zealand

“The whole experience was great, and Sun Host Wally was outstanding. This was, by far, the best experience we’ve ever had at a ski resort. Wally was so friendly and cheerful, he made the whole day fantastic. It was like skiing with a good friend." – Michael and Stephanie, Australia

“I think what I enjoyed the most about Sun Peaks are the Sun Hosts. They have taken me places in the resort I would have never ventured. Generally, I found this to be such a friendly resort, and the Sun Hosts really know the value of service." – Alan, Canada
