Sun Peaks is a charming, car-free village with a Tyrolean atmosphere located just north of Kaloomps, British Columbia. It includes three peaks; Tod Mountain, Sundance Ridge and Mt. Morrisey, a recent addition bringing 600 new acres of skiable terrain to the resort. Nancy Green, an Olympic Gold medalist, is the Director of Skiing for Sun Peaks. During the winter season, Nancy spends time on the slopes with skiers. The resort’s top elevation is 2,080 meters (6,824 feet) and has a vertical drop of 881 meters (2,819 feet). There are 117 runs at Sun Peaks with the longest running 8 kilometers (5 miles), and there are 12 gladed areas. Together, they add up to 3,678 skiable acres. The ski season starts November 16 and runs April 17.
Sun Peaks has built a large snowboarding park covering over 30 acres that includes a half-pipe and an adventure-packed terrain park. In 1997 and 1998, Sun Peaks hosted the FIS Grundig Snowboard World Cup. Cross-country skiers have the run of 50 kilometers (31 miles) of track including wilderness trails and 22 kilometers (14 miles) of groomed track. Other winter activities include snowshoeing, snowmobiling, sleigh rides, dog sledding, and cat skiing tours of the backcountry areas. One outdoor skating rink hosts skaters and hockey players.
