Longer days and warmer temperatures mean there’s an exciting buzz in the air. Get inspired to spend some time out in the sunshine with these 4 reasons to visit Sun Peaks in the spring.
Longer Days = More Time For Activities
The clocks have sprung forward, gifting us an extra hour of sunshine at the end of the day. Soak up the sun and make the most of every extra minute by packing your day full of spring activities. Snowshoeing, Nordic Skiing and Tubing are all still in great condition and are a fun way for the whole family to get out and enjoy the nice weather.
Get ready to shed some layers, rip down some groomers, and bask in the sun because spring skiing is here! Spring temperatures in Sun Peaks historically hover around -3.9C in March and -1.1C in April, giving everyone a well-deserved break from the winter freeze. To sweeten the deal, Morrisey, Orient and Sundance chairlifts are all open until 4:00pm, so the fun can continue through the afternoon. Once you’re all tired out from a day on the slopes, relax on one of our outdoor patios for après with friends.
Warmer temperatures mean we are in the mood to celebrate, so our event calendar is stacked full of fun events. If you’re in the mood for world class acts and inspiring venues, join us April 5 – 7 for Europe’s famous music festival, Snowbombing. Headliners Illenium and Cypress Hill are just two of the acts that will be providing entertainment throughout the three day festival. If you’re sticking around until the end of the downhill ski season, celebrate with Tod Mountain Days, April 13 - 14. Spectate or participate in the Slush Cup as decked-out skiers and snowboarders launch into a pool of water, or, take part in the Top to Bottoms Run where skiers make their way down the hill to the Bottoms Bar & Grill patio. Check out all of our spring events here to be sure that you don’t miss out on any of the fun.
