Sun Peaks has officially had the first mountain-top snowfall and the winter stoke is in the air. While the countdown until the lifts start spinning again is on, get inspired with these six reasons to visit Sun Peaks this winter.
Endless Terrain To Explore
Sun Peaks has 4,270 acres of skiable terrain making us Canada’s second largest ski area. With a huge variety of runs, from steep and deep double black diamonds to long and cruisy greens. Plus, Sun Peaks has three mountains to explore meaning you can always find a run to yourself. Whether you’re a seasoned shredder or you prefer to stick to the bunny hill, there will be something for you.
Winter Activities for Everyone
Although Sun Peaks is known for its epic downhill skiing we also boast a large variety of winter activities for all outdoor-lovers to enjoy. Tick dog sledding or a horse drawn sleigh ride off of your bucket list, glide around on our brand new NHL-sized skating rink, or swap out your downhill skis for some skinny skis and explore 34 kilometers of impeccably groomed Nordic trails. There are a variety of other unique on and off-mountain activities, so take your pick here.
Ski-In, Ski-Out Access
Getting to Sun Peaks is easy and once your car is parked you won’t need it for the rest of your time here. Enjoy easy lift access by staying in our village core or find a ski-in ski-out location in the quiet surrounding hills. All three of our mountains flow back into the village, making it easy to get back to your hotel or your favourite après spot once you’re done on the slopes.
Enjoy Tasty Eats
With 20+ cafés and restaurants to choose from you’ll have no trouble finding somewhere to satisfy your taste buds. Take a stroll (or a ski) through our village to find a quick café for breakfast or lunch, an outdoor patio to cozy up and enjoy some après, or a place to unwind and enjoy a delicious dinner.
Go Shopping & Support Local
The village is packed full of locally owned shops, so while you are here you can stock up on all sorts of unique goodies. From outdoor and lifestyle apparel, to knickknacks and locally made treasures, and even a variety of tasty and healthy treats. Take a stroll (or ski) through the village and peek your head into one of 20 different shops to pick up something for yourself.

Bonus: Short Lift Lines
We’ve all been there before: waiting ages in a lift line while dreaming of being on the slopes. Sun Peaks is known for having short lift lines, so you can spend more of your day shredding, and less of your day standing in line.
