About Sun Peaks Resort

Sun Peaks Resort is a year-round mountain community nestled in the interior of British Columbia. Averaging 2,000 hours of sunlight a year and surrounded by three majestic mountains—Tod Mountain, Sundance Mountain, and Mount Morrisey—Sun Peaks is a haven for those seeking a stress-free alpine getaway.

As Canada's second-largest ski area, snow-bound travelers can expect light, dry powder and consistent snowfall throughout the winter season. One pass grants access to all three mountains; each lift has a beginner and intermediate run off of it, and terrain funnels into the village with convenient ski-through access.

Perfect for exploring on foot, the pedestrian-only village is filled with restaurants, cafes, pubs, and shops with everything from clothing to local artisan goods. With nine hotels and lodges in the village core, plus more in the immediate surroundings, visitors have a range of accommodations to suit their preferences and needs.

During the summer months, Sun Peaks transforms into a lush paradise for golfing (at British Columbia’s highest elevation), mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, and paddling or fly fishing on nearby lakes.

Plan an unforgettable trip to Sun Peaks with The Lodging Company and immerse yourself in the beauty and adventure of British Columbia's mountainous terrain.

10 Locals Named to Sun Peaks Resort’s New Ambassador Team

February 8th, 2024

Sun Peaks, BC (February 2, 2024): Ten local skiers and riders are now officially representing Sun Peaks Resort as newly named Ambassadors. After a tremendous show of support with over 100 applications, these 10 athletes and community members will work closely with the resort through the 2023-24 winter ski season.

The Sun Peaks Ambassador Team program launched its inaugural season in November, in search of four athletes and six locals to enter a mutually beneficial relationship of supporting and celebrating local talent, while representing and showcasing Sun Peaks to the world. Athletes must be at a provincial or national competition level and Ambassadors must be active in the community and at a high skill level of skiing or riding.

“We were pleasantly overwhelmed by the positive response to the launch of the program this season,” says Sam Loxton, Sun Peaks Resort’s Marketing and Content Manager and program lead, “It was a fun and challenging process to review the applications and make our selection. We’re stoked to be partnering with these 10 individuals for 2023-24 and are looking forward to continuing the program in future years.”

The Ambassador Team program is split into two streams – Athletes and Ambassadors. All team members receive a season’s pass and exposure through Sun Peaks Resort’s content creation and publishing. Athletes also receive a $2500 cash stipend and membership to Sun Peaks Alpine Fitness to support their competition endeavours. In return, Ambassadors are required to participate in Resort content production and assist in on-mountain hosting of special guests.

As a testament to the calibre of local athletes applying to the program, athlete ambassador, Gabi Dinn of Kamloops, recently returned from the 2024 Winter Youth Olympic Games in Korea.

“It was an amazing opportunity and experience,” says Dinn, “Being my first competition outside of Canada, it gave me a perspective on competing at the international level and the extra attention it attracts — becoming comfortable with all the cameras and additional pressure of representing Canada. It was a rare and special experience and I’m honoured to have attended.”

Dinn, along with fellow athlete ambassador Charlie Roberts, will be competing at this weekend’s Canada Cup hosted in Sun Peaks. The Canada Cup is a sanctioned event by Freestyle Canada which prepares athletes for international competition and provides access to FIS points. In November, Roberts competed at the FIS Open in Idre Fjäll, Sweden, placing in the top 10 in moguls.

Rounding out the contingent, Katie Brayer and Nayte Brown both placed first overall at the BC Snowboard Provincial Series Slopestyle events in Whistler Blackcomb in early January, with Brown also taking first in the U18 category at the same event in Big White later in the month.

The Resort is looking forward to launching the mountain bike equivalency of the Ambassador Team program in spring 2024. Stay tuned for details.
