Explore Summer

Away from it all, but right at home.

Summer days in Sun Peaks bring refreshing temperatures and breathtaking 360-degree views. Located in the interior of British Columbia, Sun Peaks is a year-round mountain community with engaging and friendly locals, and full-service resort amenities. Three mountains surround a European-style, pedestrian-only village, making it easy to get around. Summer brings to life the colourful alpine blossoms, a plethora of outdoor activities, festivals, free outdoor concerts and sporting events.

Biking, hiking, & alpine sightseeing

Home to the legendary Sun Peaks Bike Park with lift-access downhill and cross country options, as well as a small but growing cross country network in the valley.

Start your adventure right from the village or enjoy a relaxing ride up the Sunburst Express chairlift and start from 6,000'. Explore our mountain playground with 18 hiking trails that range from relaxing strolls to exhilarating summits, featuring magnificent wildflower displays if you time your visit right!

front nine

The front nine was constructed back in 1996, and range from the short 122 yard par three hole 7 to the difficult, uphill 500 yard hole 6. The front nine require delicate accuracy due to the narrow fairways. Some even suggest keeping the driver in the bag and pulling out the irons.

back nine

The newer back nine are a terrific complement to the challenges of the front. More open, more forgiving, and for most, more opportunities for lower scores. Hole 12 is the back nine’s most difficult, and hole 16 is the course's signature, with tee boxes perched at 1,333 metres (4,353').
