Overview

Centrally located in the Interior region of British Columbia, Sun Peaks Resort is Canada’s second largest ski area. The terrain is diverse and spread across three mountains - Mt. Tod, Sundance and Mt. Morrisey - totalling 4,270 acres. Formerly Tod Mountain prior to 1993, the resort has developed into a year-round community, at the centre of which is a European-style, ski-through village including hotels, condos, restaurants and shops. 135 alpine trails flow into the village from 360° of terrain and over 34km of Nordic skiing trails. From groomed cruisers to bumps, a progressive 10-acre terrain park, abundant glades, steeps and alpine bowls, the varied terrain at Sun Peaks Resort accommodates all levels and abilities. Featuring 10% beginner, 58% intermediate and 32% advanced/expert terrain, the resort boasts that varying levels of skier and boarders can ride up the same lift, take different trails down, and meet up at the same lift again. Sun Peaks receives 6 meters of snow annually in the form of light, dry powder conditions for which the Interior of BC is famous. 

Seven on-mountain hotels with many condominiums and chalets providing 6,000 beds. Additional lodging in Kamloops 45 minutes from the area.
