As anticipated and seen around the world in the past week, the number of COVID-19 cases has once again risen due to the prevalence of the Omicron variant. Sun Peaks is similar and there are currently multiple cases of COVID-19 throughout the community in various areas. Full protocols in accordance with British Columbia public health orders and guidelines remain in place to help manage this type of situation for the safety of everyone.
All staff, guests, and community members are reminded to review best practices and follow our policies and procedures which can be found here.
In the coming days, we may see operational impacts in some areas out of an abundance of caution. Confirmed cases are limited at the present time, but many other individuals are self-isolating as an extra precaution. We anticipate disruptions to be minimal but do ask for patience and understanding for our teams as we work through the evolving situation. Like most businesses, especially ones in the tourism and hospitality sector, we are balancing the needs of guest experience with the safety for all involved.
See you on the slopes. Let it snow.
