Summer is now in full swing here in Sun Peaks! On Friday, June 22, we fired up the Sunburst chairlift for the opening day of the Sun Peaks Bike Park and lift-access hiking.
As eager bikers and hikers staked their spots in line and counted down the clock to first chair at 10:00am, participants of the annual three day Mountain Spirit Festival were limbering up with some yoga, while golfers were teeing off on our beautiful mountain course.
Some pre-opening rain had the Bike Park trails in perfect condition, before the clouds gave way to beautiful sunshine throughout the weekend for the hikers, golfers, and sightseers to revel in.
Here's a look at how the 2018 summer chairlift opening weekend unfolded:
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the opening weekend of the Sunburst chairlift! We hope you had a fantastic time and we look forward to seeing you up here throughout the summer.
This weekend promises to be even bigger and better, with our annual Canada Day Weekend celebrations headlined by a free outdoor concert from Canadian rockers Big Sugar!
