When to visit

Sun Peaks is a winter wonderland for six months of the year, with endless ski terrain, impeccable grooming, winter sports and activities galore. It can be hard to decide when to visit.

Here are six reasons why every month offers something new and unforgettable to get you excited for your next trip.


Winter Chairlift

The month of November is filled with anticipation and excitement for the upcoming winter season. Sun Peaks is set to open on November 19, making it the first ski resort to open in BC. 

This is the perfect time to brush up on your snow safety skills with Sun Peaks Backcountry Tours and Avalanche Training.



From Holiday Kick-off to family activities, fresh snowfall, and the Christmas break create a festive atmosphere all month long. 

There's plenty of fun to be had on and off the mountain from adrenaline-pumping tube park rides to horse-drawn sleigh rides, and sweetly-satisfying Moonlight Snowshoe Tours.



Start the new year off right. January is the month for a classic winter wonderland experience, with our snow ghosts out to play. Expect deep snowfalls and activities to be in full swing. 

Ski all day and play all evening. Try your hand at axe-throwing or glide into the evening at the skating rink



February is the month for powder lovers, with Mother Nature providing endless powder days. It is also the perfect time to try some new activities. 

Take advantage of the fresh snow and explore Sun Peaks from new angles with a snowmobiling tour. If you're looking for a romantic experience, add the Alpine Fondue & Starlight Descent to your itinerary. 



March is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors with friends. On the mountain, explore our impeccable grooming, warm spring days and après on the patios with friends. Or swap your downhill gear for skinny skis and hit the trails for a unique Nordic skiing experience. Or add a dog sledding tour to your visit for an unforgettable experience.



April is our final month of the winter season. With warmer days comes an exciting lineup of events. Show off your best retro ski attire, compete in a legendary Top to Bottoms Race and don't miss out on slush cup!
