The shift in weather has begun and, if you’re anything like us, winter is already on your mind. Get inspired to start your winter planning with these 5 reasons to visit Sun Peaks. 

The Ski Terrain

Sunrise Ski

Being the second largest ski area in Canada, we are known for our 360 degrees of skiing & boarding that expands over three mountains, offering up a 4,270-acre playground. From steep and deep powder, to long cruisy groomers, there is truly something for everyone. Our ski-through village is located at the base of all three mountains, which makes accessing the lifts quick and easy so you can enjoy more time on the hill.

NO Crowds


Our vast terrain means one thing for sure—you’re bound to get tons of space to yourself. A lack of crowds combined with wide open spaces have been a source of praise for years from dedicated skiers and locals. You’ll love getting fresh turns all day long!

Winter Activities for Everyone


Not a downhill skier or boarder? No problem! You can still have an epic experience at Sun Peaks. There are 37 kilometers of groomed and track set Nordic trails. Or you can try your hand at ice fishing, ride a horse-drawn sleigh, ice skate, take a snow bike lesson, go on a snowmobile tour, a dogsled tour or a snowshoe tour, the possibilities are endless! A full list of winter activities can be found here. Be sure to leave enough time for shopping in our ski-through village.
