Covering over 4,000 acres of mountainous terrain, Sun Peaks is a huge ski resort in British Columbia offering an abundance of snow sports in winter months and plenty of alpine beauty in the summer.
The architecture of the village itself, which is the resort’s focal point, resembles that of a French ski town and oozes charm. There are plenty of eateries and shops here, and even spas offering massages and treatments to ease those aching muscles after some time on the slopes or hikes through the forests.
Said to have some of the best snow in Canada, you’ll find slopes for every ability in Sun Peaks. If skiing isn’t your thing, then there are plenty of other activities to choose from too; take a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the beautiful landscape, go ice-skating on the outdoor rink or try your hand at ice fishing - all this and more is on offer.
In summertime, there’s golfing, hiking through the mountains and plenty of family-friendly activities available. Plus, Sun Peaks is just about the middle point on a drive from Vancouver to Banff so it’s the perfect stop on a self-drive holiday through western Canada.
