Explore a Winter Wonderland

Covered Bridge

Sun Peaks truly transforms into a winter wonderland from November to April. Even when there is no snow in other parts of the province, Sun Peaks can promise a solid base of snow on our mountains. Our scheduled winter opening date is November 20, 2021 and we're usually one of the very first ski resorts to open in BC, so you'll get even more time to shred! Don’t worry if you’re not a skier, there are plenty of things to do off the slopes too.

Minimal Crowds


Staying away from big crowds will be key this winter, and the perfect way to do this is to get outdoors. Sun Peaks is known for a combination of vast terrain and minimal crowds, making it the ideal destination to get tons of space to yourself. The safety of our visitors is of the utmost importance to us with additional physical distancing protocols in place throughout the resort.
