It’s about 8-10 degrees cooler in Sun Peaks than in nearby Kamloops, so when heading into the alpine on the Sunburst chair to an elevation of 1850 metres, you might get even cooler temperatures. Enjoy views that meander into the distant valleys of the Shuswap to the east, the Okanagan to the South and faint glimpses of the Coast Mountains to the west. With an abundance of Family Weeks activities alongside the regular line-up of mountain-side activities – there are more reasons to visit Sun Peaks in summer than just the views!
