Sun Peaks Resort


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 Winter 2023-24 Sun Peaks Ambassador Team members:

    Katie Brayer, 20 – BC Snowboard Provincial Slopestyle Team, Sun Peaks Freestyle Club Charlie Roberts, 18 – Freestyle BC Moguls Team Gabi Dinn, 16 – Freestyle BC Park & Pipe Team / Team Canada – 2024 Winter Youth Olympic Games Nayte Brown, 17 – BC Snowboard Provincial Slopestyle Team, Sun Peaks Freestyle Club

    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.

    Sun Peaks Resort Announces West Bowl Express Chairlift

    April 5th, 2023

    SUN PEAKS, BC (APRIL 5, 2023): Continuing with a targeted investment strategy to improve the overall mountain and guest experience, Sun Peaks Resort is pleased to announce a brand-new high speed detachable quad chairlift coming to the alpine area of the resort.

    The West Bowl Express will be located in the upper reaches of Mt. Tod and will provide enhanced access to a popular area of the resort known for quality snow and scenic vistas. The new Doppelmayr constructed lift will cost an estimated $12 million dollars and will be complete in advance of the 2024/25 winter season.

    ‘Sun Peaks continues to evolve and this significant new lift infrastructure will diversify the experience in an important pod of terrain in the resort. Guests will have additional trails and vertical to explore with the convenience and efficiency of detachable lift technology,” says Darcy Alexander, Vice President and General Manager.

    Work to build the new West Bowl Express is already well underway. Detailed planning, engineering, and ground construction has been recently completed. Additional electrical and foundation work will be carried out this summer with final lift installation to take place the following year.

    This investment announcement follows substantial improvements to the mountain product in recent years, highlighted by the brand-new Orient chairlift, the Crystal chairlift replacement and last years hugely successful expansion of lift-accessed mountain biking via the Sundance Express for summer. With the West Bowl Express slated to open in November 2024, Sun Peaks will have placed three new chairlifts into operation in just under a six-year period. These initiatives reflect the resort’s commitment to delivering a world-class skiing and snowboarding experience at Canada’s Second Largest ski area.

    Sun Peaks will provide more details about the new West Bowl Express chairlift in the coming months. Guests can stay up-to-date on the latest developments by visiting the website and social media channels.

Throughout the weekend, Secwepemc storytellers and entertainers like Kenthen Thomas and Paul Michel will be here to unravel Indigenous legends and education about the histories of their ancestors.
