Winter fun at Sun Peaks Resort, British Columbia

Given that it’s practically summer over here in the Pacific Northwest, it feels a little strange to be posting a photo essay from our winter trip to Sun Peaks Resort. We visited Canada’s second largest ski resort a few weeks ago, at the end of March, just a couple weeks before it shut down its winter operations for the season.

If you’ve never been to Sun Peaks Resort, and you’re wondering where it’s located, you’ll find this family friendly resort in British Columbia’s Interior, about 45 minutes north of Kamloops and 5 hours drive from Vancouver.

We love its European-style alpine village and laid-back family vibe. It’s only 5 hour drive from Vancouver, yet we feel like we’re in a completely different part of the country.

I contemplated whether I should hold off sharing these photos until next winter, because many of you are already in a summer state of mind, but then I realized this is probably the best time to start making your plans for next winter.

As you’ll soon see, we had a wonderful time during our 4 day visit to Sun Peaks.

We went snowboarding multiple times, Braydon learned to ski for the first time, we went tubing and sledding, we took a horse drawn carriage tour of the village and we even managed to squeeze in a dog sledding tour. The first day on the slopes was a sunny bluebird day and on the second day it snowed for hours. We could not have asked for better weather conditions.
