Clear the fog and falling snow away from your eyes, because the fact is that Sun Peaks, in beautiful British Columbia isn’t just a winter destination – it’s a year-round paradise!
Sitting between majestic craggy peaks and bathed in that pristine mountain air, Sun Peaks is much more than “just” a wintery resort-town.
In fact, this quaint, pedestrian-only village is home to over 900 permanent residents and more than 40 boutique shops and locally-owned restaurants. Translation? This is a real town with real possibilities for fun outside the ski season, and you should definitely visit.
Summer comes alive with tons of free events
Outside the winter months, Sun Peaks livens up with a myriad of soft adventure activities and a string of free events, animating the village and drawing tons of overnight guests.
There’s always something interesting on, such as the Alpine Bloom Festival, the Annual Retro Concert Weekend, the Peaks Pedal Fest and much more!
Be sure to sip on a sundowner on one of Sun Peaks many outdoor patios whilst listening to live music, and be sure to check the town’s event calendar and plan ahead so you don’t miss out!

Affordable rates are out of season
Whilst other resorts are increasing their rates during the summer holiday season, Sun Peaks has consistently bucked the trend and kept their accommodation prices low.
They want you to have an amazing Canadian holiday experience at an affordable price – bless them!
Summer also comes alive with colour – thanks wildflowers!
Just imagine the rolling mountains injected with vibrant yellows, reds and purples, thanks to beautiful meadows blooming with alpine flowers…
Well, visit Sun Peaks from mid-July to mid-August, and you won’t have to imagine anything at all, because colourful flower petals will literally be staring at you right in the face! Wildflower fans are best served by hopping on the Sunburst Express chairlift for the best views of the blossoming flowers.
It’s also possible to admire the wildflowers up close by taking your pick of 18 designated hiking trails that weave into and out of colourful meadows and mountains.
Winter is over, enter other awesome outdoor activities
Take a Voyageur Canoe Tour, ride a horse, try North America’s first (and only) Mountain Cross Cart Course, go hiking or mountain biking. The options are limitless!
Or play an amazing round (or two) of golf – fact: located at 1,200 metres above sea level, the Golf Course at Sun Peaks Resort is the highest course in BC! Not only does it offer some of the most scenic golf in the country, but its challenging 18-hole par 72 Graham Cooke course will appeal to golfers of all levels.
Did you know: that playing golf at such high elevations means your ball will fly much longer in the thin mountain air? Yep!
