Activities in Sun Peaks

Cat Trax Groomer Rides

This is your chance to join one of Sun Peak's snow groomers in a Pisten Bully Snow Groomer, and witness first hand how they work their magic on the ski runs!

Dog Sledding

Hook up and "mush" your own team of Alaskan Huskies through the glistening white snow of Sun Peaks. The professional guides will teach you everything you need to know before heading out on your adventure. Guests have the choice of either mushing their own team, or riding as a passenger in the sled. Guests who choose to mush their own team must be in good physical condition, as they might have to run alongside the sled on hills or inclines.

Fondue and Torchlight Descent

Partake in one of Sun Peaks Resort’s signature events. The evening begins with a trip up the chair to the Sunburst Restaurant. Upon arrival you will be treated with a delightful fondue accompanied by live music. The menu includes a variety of meats, seafood, breads, and vegetables to accompany the oil and cheese fondues. The meal is followed by a chocolate fondue dessert with a selection of fresh fruits. After the meal you will then cruise down the torch lit slopes of the 5 Mile ski run.

Snowshoeing

Join a professional guide for a fun and informative two hour afternoon snowshoe tour through the quiet forests surrounding Sun Peaks Resort. Your excursion will begin with an introductory lesson followed by a history of snowshoeing, snowshoe technology, and local lore. During the tour you will experience the natural habitat of local birds and animals. Stops will be made at the bird feeding stations and snow cave. Guests will also have a chance to relax at our trapper’s camp, and enjoy a hot apple cider and a trail treat. This is a great introduction to the designated snowshoe trail system, and a great way to meet other visitors to Sun Peaks.

Ice Skating

A full size outdoor rink is only a short walk from the village where you can skate with friends or join in a game of hockey. Skate and stick rentals are available at the rink.

Tube Park

The Tube Park is a conveyor lift-accessed park with unique curving lanes, located at the top of the Sundance platter.

Snow-Limo

The Snow-Limo, designed and built by Snow-Limo Mountain Touring, provides a unique opportunity for non-skiers. Glide down some of our downhill ski runs safely and comfortably with a trained and experienced chauffeur-guide.

First Tracks Breakfast

Kick off your Wednesday morning on the mountain with exclusive access to exceptional alpine terrain accessed by the Crystal chair until 9:00am, followed by a hearty breakfast at the Sunburst Mid-Mountain Restaurant.
