Sun Peaks Resort in British Columbia and Escape2ski connect you to skiing, snowboarding, snow reports, trail maps, lift tickets, lodging and webcams. Sun Peaks Resort is located northeast of the city of Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada. The ski area opened to the public in 1961 with just one chairlift, known as the Burfield Chair and the Burfield Daylodge. The resort once known as Tod Mountain was sold and in 1993 the name Sun Peaks Resort emerged, and over the years has grown from the early days to become a full-service four-season resort that has gained the attention of the skiing and snowboarding community from all over the world. Tod Mountain, Sundance Mountain and Mt Morrisey combine to make up the terrain for the Resort and after your day is finished on the slopes, enjoy the charm of the base area village with shops and restaurants.

At Escape2ski you’ll find out – What to know…before the snow.
