Sun Peaks

Sun Peaks (pop. 600), Canada’s Alpine Village, is just a short, scenic 45-minute drive from Kamloops in the North Thompson Valley of BC’s Interior. An alpine village straight out of a fairytale, Sun Peaks is nestled between three separate peaks and rests amid the Cariboo and Monashee Mountain ranges. Visit Canada’s second largest ski resort in summer and you’ll find a haven for hikers, mountain bikers, music lovers and families. Pack your skis for a visit in winter — the entire village is ski-in, ski-out, and surrounded by 4,270 acres of deep, dry BC powder most skiers only dream of. Sun Peaks has earned a lofty reputation as a family-friendly, affordable ski destination — where the snow quality is matched with its award winning ski-in ski-out village and its annual Winter Okanagan Wine Festival. So come for the snow, but come back for the summers when those same alpine slopes morph into endless hiking and mountain biking trails, and the village square becomes centre stage for Sun Peaks’ legendary Summer Concert Series.
