    News – 2017/18

    Sunburst Lodge, the only mountain restaurant and renowned for its cinnamon buns, has been doubled in size. And Bento’s Day Lodge at the base has had its seating capacity increased by 45%.

    The first Coors Light Snowbombing music festival, modelled on the successful European version held in Mayrhofen, was staged here in April 2017. It was a big success and is being held here again 5 to 9 April 2018.

    Summary

    Sun Peaks has a friendly, attractive small village that has been developed since the mid-1990s. And recent expansion of the ski area means that Sun Peaks is now the second biggest ski area in Canada – only Whistler is bigger. But that doesn’t make it big by Alpine standards. The terrain is nicely varied but a keen skier could cover the groomed trails in a couple of days. We still suggest combining it with a stay at another resort such as Whistler.
