Millions Invested in Sun Peaks
Sun Peaks has announced huge infrastructure investment of $60 million for the upcoming 2018/19 season and beyond.
The huge news is that a new chairlift will be installed in time for next season, which will improve mountain, village and ski-in, ski-out access for the east village residences and allow easier movement Morrissey and Sun Dance sides of the mountain.
In addition to this great news, $300,000 is being invested in upgrades to the Sundance Chairlift, located in the centre of the village. With perfect beginner terrain and access to the terrain park from Sundance, it’s no wonder this lift is the busiest in resort, so an increased capacity will ease the queues that occasionally (and we mean, occasionally!) build up at this lift.
Sun Peaks previous lift capacity equated to 12,000 people per hour, but with the new lift and increased chairs on Sundance the new lift capacity is 13,600 per hour – this is actually more than double the overnight capacity in Sun Peaks!
The Sun Peaks Grand will be having a make-over during the summer months, with $7,000,000 being spent on room upgrades. Brand new furniture, linens, flooring, wallcoverings and artwork will evoke a sense of warmth and coziness.
Investment in real estate across the village is ongoing, with new developments well under construction, and another piece of big news is that $7,000,000 will be invested in the Sun Peaks Centre. A large scale project will enhance the existing sports centre, the improved venue will include a multi-purpose indoor area which will hold up to 3000 participants, enablingt he community to host concerts, sporting events and corporate trade shows. The centre will have facilities for both local residents and resort guests, and should be an asset to Sun Peaks.
$1,000,000 will be spent on investment in mountain capital. Two new PistenBully Cats will be purchased and ready in time for for next winter. Sun Peaks is renowned for it’s cruising blue and green groomers – so 2 new machines will ensure pristine pistes on all areas of the mountain.
The exciting initiatives ensure the continuing evolution of Sun Peaks as a leading destination and Canada’s second largest ski area. The developments will enhance the experience of our guests taking part in ski instructor courses, snowboard instructor courses and instructor internships in Sun Peaks.
