Sun Peaks ski resort is located in the central interior of British Columbia, Canada, just 45 minutes north of Kamloops. It is a year-round ski resort surrounded by three picturesque mountains; Tod Mountain, Mt. Morrisey and Sundance Mountain. The village of Sun Peaks ski resort is situated at 1,255m and the peak elevation takes you up to 2,152m providing skiers and boarders with an impressive 882m vertical drop.
Skiing began in 1961 with a single chairlift, opened on Tod Mountain. It was the longest chairlift in North America at that time. A winner of many awards, Sun Peaks ski resort was voted Best Village Location and Atmosphere (#1), Best Canadian Resort (#2), and Best for All-Round Family Activities (#3) in 2016 by Holidays with Kids and Top Three North American Ski Resorts by Net Promoter Score by The Ski Club of Great Britain also in 2016.
The addition of 522 acres of new terrain in the 2014/15 season has maximized ski area to 4,270 acres. The current ski area includes 110 acres of trails on West Morrisey (between the Back in Time and Static Cling trails) and 412 acres of runs on the current back-country area of Gil’s, atop Mt. Tod. After that, Gil’s features hike-in /ski out trails, (from 5 Mile trail accessed via the Burfield and Crystal chairlifts) with an outrun at the bottom increasing the current vertical.
