Sun Peaks is a popular resort that has steadily grown into the second biggest ski area in the whole of Canada, only behind Whistler. Despite this, the total ski area is much smaller than many of the resorts in places like the Alps and most of the groomed runs can be covered in a short time by more experienced skiers. However, it still makes an excellent ski destination, especially when coupled with a visit to a place like Whistler.
Affordable and exciting ski & snowboard holidays to Sun Peaks during the winter are growing in popularity and there are flights leaving to the region on a daily basis from UK airports.

Check the Cheeky Trip comparison site for our full selection of well-priced ski holidays. Direct flights to Vancouver and Calgary are both in the 9 and a half hour range.
The busiest and arguably best time to visit Sun Peaks is during the winter months when the ski season is at its peak. However, this is still a brilliant destination to visit even when you aren’t on the slopes with so many wonderful winter activities to get stuck into. Some of those include climbing the modest summit of Mt. Tod which provides spectacular views of the region and exploring the quirky town centre.
It is beginners that will probably get the most out of a visit to this resort. The entire ski resort can be explored on easy and wide slopes that are usually quiet and without the pressure of surrounding crowds. There is also a separate ‘Learning Zone’ in the village with a people mover that you will want to check out. Intermediates will also have a great time in this resort due to the number of red runs that Sun Peaks has to offer. Red runs make up the highest proportion of routes in this resort and offer a challenge to those with a bit more experience. Even the most advanced skiers will find a number of incredible slopes and off-piste runs to try out. Some of the best are located down Mt. Morrissey, Mt. Tod and on Sundance mountain.
Almost every style of accommodation is available in Sun Peaks which is ideal since people naturally travel with different budgets and preferences in mind. Anything from apartments to cosy log cabins to luxurious 5-star hotels can be found - the choice is entirely yours! In the ski resort itself, there is only one restaurant available to guests: the Sunburst Lodge. However, a short journey to Sun Peaks Village and you will find an abundance of restaurants with a load of variety in the menus.
