AN ALPINE ANATOMY LESSON

Paul Samyn

The only constant on the base-to-peak ride that covers 890 metres of vertical distance is the gentle rocking of the chairlift that lulls you into believing you are in a different place and time. I’m having a time-travelling moment as I near the top of Crystal Bowl, largely because seated next to me is a living piece of our nation’s skiing history — Nancy Greene Raine.

What they don’t tell you about Sun Peaks

Rachael Oakes-Ash

Those who have headed to Sun Peaks before me, and there are many, already belong to a private club of those in the snow know who smile, nod and wink when another of their kind crosses their path. Thankfully I now also belong, though for a time there I may never have discovered the delights of this Okanagan resort. Thank god I saw the error of my ways.

6 Things to do While Visiting Sun Peaks Resort in the Summer

Kim Logan - Tales Of A Ranting Ginger

Early this summer we had the opportunity to visit and explore Sun Peaks Resort just 45 minutes outside of Kamloops. The mountain resort is great for families all year-long. Spend the day or a week, however long you stay, there are lots to do. I found the weekdays to be a bit slower paced, not crazy busy and quite enjoyed it. However not all of the shops are open during the week. So you may want to call ahead, if looking for something specific!

Hidden Gems: 'Sun Peaks is what Whistler Blackcomb was like 25 years ago'

Barb Livingstone - Calgary Herald

Unless you are already a happy denizen of the Sun Peaks community, whose population grew 66 per cent between 2011-2016, chances are that wasn’t your guess. And this hidden gem of a four-season resort town — one of Canada’s largest ski areas with 1,728 hectares across three skiable peaks (Tod, Sundance, and Morrisey) around an intimate, ski-in/ski-out village — is expected to continue growing. It has its own on-hill K-12 school, and just launched a $3 million upgrade to on-hill food and day-lodge services.

Girl powder: How heli-skiing became a sport for me too

Margo Pfeiff - Los Angeles Times

CARIBOO MOUNTAINS, Canada — I carved an S-curve of downhill graffiti on deep, virgin alpine powder, floating down amid spectacular snow-covered mountain ranges beneath a bluebird sky. Suddenly, I wiped out in a dramatic “double eject,” losing both my skis. OK?” she asked, brushing snow off my jacket. I caught the reflection of my powder-caked face in her goggles and we both began to laugh.

Voyageur Canoe Tour & Fur Traders Feast, B.C., Canada

Christine Salines - Food, Wine, Travel

It’s just on dusk and the silence on McGillivray Lake is broken only by the sound of two loons and their chicks flapping about on the water. It’s my first sight of the bird immortalised in the design and the name of Canada’s $1 coin, the loonie, and I’m captivated by the stories told by our guide, Campbell, about these quick swimmers that dive for their food, mate monogamously and have a haunting call that echoes across the water.
