Sun Peaks: BC’s Best Kept Secret

Our Team leader Tammy Newman went to BC and tells us about her best day on the slopes (ever) at Sun Peaks. Find out why she can’t wait to go back: When first deciding to head out to Sun Peaks I had no preconceived expectations. Having skied/snowboarded all over North America I figured it was just like every where else. Boy was I wrong! As one guy I rode with on the chair lift put it, “This is BC’s best kept secret“, then he pleaded with me to not tell anyone else how great it is (I guess I should have told him that I’m not good at keeping secrets).

sunpeaksIt was the best day I’ve had on the slopes, maybe ever! On the runs it felt like I had the entire mountain to myself. At the bottom I had no time to rest before getting on the chair. There were no line ups anywhere, and yet the hotels were nearly at full capacity. With access to three mountains and no lines you won’t believe how many runs you can fit into one day. It was incredible.

Rated Canada’s #1 family destination it should be no surprise that everyone is friendly and relaxed. The small town feel around the village extends itself onto the slopes.

Not once on the lift did I have a lonely moment. No matter who got on beside me they wanted to make sure that I was having a good time and find out where I was from. Olympic Gold Medalist Nancy Greene herself conducts complimentary welcome ski receptions every Sunday and will give you a private ski lesson for a cost.

All resorts in the village are ski in/ski out. And since they don’t plow the village all stores and restaurants are too. If you don’t ski there are plenty of activities to keep you busy off the mountains. Snowshoeing, snowmobiling and dog sledding tours. Cross country skiing, ice skating, tubing, bungee trampoline and the list goes on and on.

Whatever you do when you’re done you’ll find yourself at “Bottoms for an après ski pint. Just don’t ring the bell! I really can’t say enough good things about this resort! It was fantastic and I can’t wait to go back.
