Sun Peaks – Mountain
Located under an hour’s drive away (61km) from Kamloops airport and town in British Columbia, Sun Peaks is situated at Tod Mountain in the Columbia Mountain range. Located in interior B.C, Sun Peaks is sheltered from the wet and cloudy conditions of coastal mountains. With over 2000 sunshine hours each year, vast and varied terrain and regular fresh snowfall – totalling 6 metres each year – Sun Peaks is the perfect mix of light, dry powder and bluebird days.
Sun Peaks – Resort
We’ve been running our ski and snowboard instructor courses at Sun Peaks Resort for over 11 years. There’s an excellent reason why. It’s a truly world class ski area.
Sun Peaks boasts the second largest skiable area in Canada. With perfectly groomed slopes, powder bowls, Alpine trees, steeps, park and backcountry options to suit all styles and abilities. Ski-in/ski-out hotels in the village centre provide easy access to the main chairlifts to get you onto the mountain quicker.
The town is a compact, friendly and family resort, with enough amenities such as restaurants, bars and retail stores for ski and snowboard equipment. There is also a pharmacy, supermarket and liquor store.
The variety of terrain and accommodation proximity make Sun Peaks an ideal place to take your Ski or Snowboard Instructor course for your gap year, time out, or career development.
Sun Peaks – Activities
Other snow-related activities are available at Sun Peaks. Ski with the knowledgeable Sun Host mountain guide tours, or head over to the Morrisey side for Nordic cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails. There is an ice skating rink and the Alpine Fitness centre. Gentler activities include horse-drawn sleigh rides through the village or walking the snowy Valley trails through alpine forest snow-clad trees.
Finally, why not visit the Spa and Wellness centre and Sun Peaks Yoga, refreshing and relaxing the body to boost your performance on the slopes!
