I don't really want to give Sun Peaks a good review as I don't want more people to come and spoil it's charm. The main village has a bit of a European feel and is compact with a great selection of stores and eating places. We took some demo skis and boards from Elevation and the staff were very helpful...

We stayed at the Heathstone lodge but walked & drove around. It is a surprisingly nice ski resort village remote from major civilization (long drive), but is fun & has a European vibe to it.

Just back from 10 days Alpine sking in Sun Peaks where you will also find Nordic and snowshoe trails, dog sledding and ski-doing options. The resort is well planned with a good lift and runs system and great selection of cafes, bars and lodging options despite being a relatively small town. Although it is Canada's second largest ski area. The... More

Having been skiing for many years in Europe this was our first visit to Canada. Picked it because it was ski in and out and a friend said it was not to busy. Was a bit worried that it might the ski area would be small in comparison with the big French areas. This place is amazing. No queues apart... More

Visited December 2016 / January 2017 for the first time. If you hate waiting in lift queues but love awesome runs with frequent snow....Sunpeaks is for you. Three mountains to choose from, no crowds, fantastic scenery, and runs which appeal to a broad range of capabilities. We did have some very cold days - locals suggested unseasonally cold (-20C to...

This resort is so nice, never to busy when we have come there. Nice ski runs, there is a run for every type of skier. Great snow shoeing trails. The snow is so fluffy and soft. Nice tubing area. People are very friendly and lots of places to eat. Highly recommend this place.

Sunny blue skies with wonderful selection of runs! The mountain ski guides offer a free ski tour twice a day that showcases the entire 3 mountains. We took this tour 3 times we loved it so much. The guides are super friendly, they really know the mountain and are fantastic ambassadors for Sun Peaks. Little to no line ups make... More

The most amazing snow we have seen (but maybe Australians are easy to please on that front?). We spent 10 days in Sun Peaks and skied 8. We highly recommend buying a Sun Peaks Card from guest services to ski more than 5 days - at the beginning we bought a lift pass with 7 out of 8 days from... More

Never skied on powder quite like it. So pretty. Great runs for the whole family. Plenty of freshly groomed runs each day, plenty of fun tree runs with jumps for kids, good mix of green/blue/black. Good access with lifts. Lifts could be improved with gondolas. In the cold weather, the ride up on the chairs is hard going.
