A great ski resort. Or you can go to concerts or out for a meal ect.. A nice drive up to the resort. Bike competitions also great. Or you can golf or hike in the summer time.

Skied 41 days at sun peaks this year. Grooming was top drawer. Great alloy day terrain. Lift lines less than 5 min. On week days. Best hill in the Okanagan in my opinion by a good margin.

As I understand it, this ski area was started by Nancy Green. Today it is quite surprising how big it is, and yet it is well designed. All the buildings "fit in" and make the village look pretty

Sun Peaks has a great ski area with many runs and many chair lifts. If you want the niceness of Whistler, but on a smaller, less expensive trip, Sun Peaks is a great choice. Has man options during the summer too.

The road is paved and well-maintained through the winter. Four wheel drive is not necessary for the drive, but snow tires are a requirement on BC Highways. There aren't any RV hook ups at the resort.
