We’ve booked this trip at the popular Sun Peaks Grand Hotel!
Come ski Canada’s second largest ski area! Near Kamloops, British Columbia, Sun Peaks offers nearly 4270 acres of skiable terrain with 2,894’ vertical! There are two alpine bowls, 138 trails with 19 gladed areas (32% expert/ 58% intermediate/ 10% novice). Thirteen lifts include 3 high-speed quads, 4 quads & 6 surface lifts. Don’t miss gliding among the trees on Mt. Morrisey, or skiing down “Five Mile Run”, or flying down the ‘groomed black-diamond of the day’. For snowboarders, there’s a 10-acre terrain park with distinct zones for all abilities. And there are over 34km of groomed/track-set cross-country trails plus 19km of backcountry trails. Sun Peaks’ Sun Hosts provide complimentary guided tours every day, and if you’re lucky, your guide might be Nancy Green (Canada’s Olympic ski champion who makes Sun Peaks her home). Sign up for “First Tracks” (includes meal) … or book a fondue dinner up top, followed by a starlight descent!
Besides skiing, you can ride a snowmobile … enjoy a snowshoe tour (miles of clearly marked trails for all abilities) … race your own team of Alaska huskies … take a horse-drawn sleigh ride … join everyone at the tube park (it’s a blast, for all ages!) … ice-skate at the new rink … take a Snow Limo tour … rent a Ski Bike, Fat Bike or Segway … enjoy guided ice-fishing … try heli-skiing … or take a Cat Trax ride with the slope-groomers.
