Conveniently, Sun Peaks terrain is almost naturally divided. Beginners and intermediates will find plenty of terrain on the lower portions of the mountain and around the base area village, while expert skiers will want to head to the resort's 7,000-plus-foot summit to access steeps and powder bowls, and backcountry.
Sun Peaks offers cross-country skiers 19 miles of groomed Nordic trails and 12 miles of off-piste trails. There’s truly never a dull moment on a Sun Peaks ski vacation.
