Family Favourite Morven Dobson, Ski Specialist

"Sun Peaks is a must-do resort. There's some amazing skiing over its three mountains and I had a fantastic time there last winter – trees, powder, sunshine, does it get any better? The après-ski is chilled out, good food and a few drinks at Mantles Lounge in The Sun Peaks Grand should certainly be on your list."

Sun Peaks Ski Holidays

Sun Peaks Resort is located in the interior of British Columbia and offers hugely varied ski terrain of over 4,200 acres, the second largest ski area in Canada.

Sun Peaks ski holidays will appeal to every level of skier with three mountains offering access to a great mix of green, blue and black diamond runs.

Featuring in the top 10 best family resorts by Condé Nast Traveler in 2014, this is a great resort for family ski holidays. The family friendly atmosphere is helped along by the convenience of ski-in/ski-out or slopeside hotels and condos, a world renowned ski school and fantastic resort amenities including a tubing park and ice skating rink. Our clients love Sun Peaks because it feels so safe, the kids can roam the shops and even ski or tube at night, while parents can watch from the restaurant or hotel.

In Sun Peaks Village you'll find a great choice of après-ski bars, restaurants, shops and boutiques and there's a winter programme of family events every season.

Our Sun peaks ski hotels include the ski-in/ski-out Sun Peaks Grand Hotel & Residences and Nancy Greene's Cahilty Hotel & Suites, owned and run by ex Olympic champion Nancy Greene. 

Skiing in Sun Peaks

Located in the beautiful interior of BC, Sun Peaks boasts some of the best winter conditions in Canada with mild temperatures, fine, dry snow and abundant blue skies. At more than 4,200 acres it is also the second largest Canadian resort. The three mountains - Tod mountain, Sundance Mountain and Mt Morrisey - are set around a predominantly ski-in/ski-out resort that will appeal greatly to all levels of skier; every chairlift grants access to green, blue and black diamond runs.

Sun Peaks is perfect for the complete beginner, with excellent green trails for learning new skills and an award-winning ski school. Advanced and intermediate skiers will also love Sun Peaks; 2 alpine bowls, 136 groomed corduroy trails, 16 wide open glade areas and easy access daily cat ski tours make Sun Peaks a dominant player amongst Canadian resorts.

Sun Peaks Resort offers daily complimentary mountain tours which are suitable for all levels of skiers and boarders through the resort's Sun Hosts programme. This is a great way to get to the know the mountain as well as picking up some local tips, such as where to find untouched tracks after a storm or which mountain restaurant serves up the best hot chocolate! Olympic champion Nancy Greene also regularly skis with guests during complimentary guided tours on most weekends and holidays.

We offer a full range of discounted Sun Peaks lift tickets, ski & snowboard rentals and snow school lessons and we always recommend you book early for our very best prices.

Following an incredibly successful first year at Sun Peaks Resort, the Coors Light Snowbombing Canada festival will return to Sun Peaks in 2018. The dates of the event for 2018 are set for April 5-9, 2018. Ski Independence will not sell this resort from 5th April 2018 to the end of the 2017-18 winter season.
