Sun Peaks Resort can be found to the north-east of Kamloops. It's made up of 3 mountains, so as you can imagine is quite a large area. They claim the title of being the second largest ski area in Canada. The village is also one of the most well-developed.

To live up to its name, most of the runs on Sun Peaks are south facing, as that face gets more sunshine during the winter. The exception to this is north facing Morrisey. This mountain is mostly an intermediate area, but there are some steeps, and they are likely the best place to find hidden powder stashes on a non-powder day.

Sundance is a mountain with a high speed lift that rises nearly 500 meters in vertical and has a top-to-bottom terrain park right underneath it. This is probably one of the best areas in BC to get good at park. At the base of it is the beginner area and the center of the village.

The other mountain is the site of the original ski area at Sun Peaks, and the highest point of the resort, Mt. Tod. This mountain is serviced either by either a high-speed quad to triple, or by a quad with a mid-station called Burfield. The latter lift is a bit slow by today's standards, but can provide a nice rest after shredding the significant amount of vertical that is in this area.

Sun Peaks is certainly not the most affordable resort in BC to visit as a skier or snowboarder, but it is one of the best.

This mountain in South Eastern B.C. gets a ton of snow and is conveniently located just far enough away from any major population to keep it fairly low key. If you have seen shots of people riding through the snow and not on top of it they were probably taken here as Fernie gets some of the lightest snow around. [ Read More ]
This the only family operated mountain on the North Shore, is fittingly tucked away behind the hustle and bustle of the city of Vancouver. Head up the windy mountain road to avoid the crowds and everything that comes along with them. All you will find up here is three double chairs and a rope tow [now 1 quad, 2 doubles, and a magic carpet], but you will likely be shredding with few oth... [ Read More ]
Some ski areas are said to be in a snow shadow. If there is an opposite term for that, it could be used to describe Whitewater. This ski area gets significantly more snow than its regional rivals, and it has awesome terrain with which to shred it on a pow day. [ Read More ]
