All three mountains are open at Sun Peaks Resort

Skiers and boarders explored their favourite resort in the North Thompson on Nov. 9, as they celebrated the launch of the 2022-23 winter season at Canada’s second largest ski area.

Thanks to the hard work of the mountain operations team at Sun Peaks, the resort opened all three mountains with eight lifts and over 20 runs, offering diverse and expansive terrain. The Sunburst Express, Elevation, Sundance Express, Morrisey Express, Morrisey Platter, Orient, Village Platter and Learning Carpet lifts are all operational, in addition to the Nordic skiing network.

“All three mountains for opening day is a fantastic sign for the season ahead. Seeing our guests and staff coming out energetic and thrilled to be back on the slopes is what it’s all about,” said Aidan Kelly, Chief Marketing Officer, Sun Peaks Resort LLP. “The team and community really stepped up to help make today a success.”

Kelly added, “Sun Peaks looks forward to another winter season focusing on exceptional service and facilitating memorable guest experiences. Favourite activities such as the Alpine Fondue & Starlight Descent, Snow Limo Tours, and the Tube Park will return.”

Sun Peaks is a resort community in the heart of British Columbia and a year-round destination for guests in search of a welcoming and stress-free mountain experience. In winter, it boasts the second-largest ski area in Canada and is consistently recognized as one of the top ski resorts in North America. The European-style ski-in/out, pedestrian village features locally-owned and operated shops, restaurants and lodging.
