Sun Peaks Ski Holidays

Family favourite Sun Peaks boasts Canada’s second largest ski area, in the heart of beautiful British Columbia. Perfect for complete beginners – yet with plenty to challenge expert skiers and riders – this ski-in/ski-out resort offers the ultimate in slopeside convenience.

Explore the slopes

Sun Peaks certainly lives up to its name, with an abundance of blue skies and sunny ski days, as well as an enviable snow record of almost three metres of light, dry powder every winter. The ski area here is spread across three interlinked mountains – Mount Tod, Sundance and Mount Morrisey. Amounting to an impressive 4,270 acres, Sun Peak’s phenomenal ski terrain features everything from high alpine snow bowls to pretty gladed zones. You’ll find a mix of trails to suit all abilities leading from the summit of every lift, so families and groups can explore together with ease.

If you’ve never tried skiing or snowboarding before, Sun Peaks is the ideal place to learn with some of the best green trails in the world – the longest of which is a blissful five miles long! For more advanced options, head above the tree-line on Mount Tod to find an exhilarating snowy playground of bowls, chutes and wide open runs.

Enjoy the resort

Sun Peak’s compact village, situated right next to the slopes, has a wonderful relaxed atmosphere. The ease of access to all three ski mountains, fun child-friendly events programme and excellent resort amenities all serve to cement its status as one of Canada’s best ski destinations for families.

There’s plenty to do besides skiing and snowboarding here. The resort is home to a tubing park, an outdoor ice skating rink, lots of lovely little boutiques and the Sundance Kids’ Centre, which offers child-minding and popular activity nights. Torch-lit skiing is an unforgettable experience, while the resort’s Snow-Limo offers non-skiers a unique opportunity to experience the thrill of a downhill run. While Sun Peaks is certainly a haven for families with children, there’s also a great choice of lively après-ski. The pedestrianised Main Street is where you’ll find the largest cluster of bars and restaurants, and several hotels are home to stylish lounges and even nightclubs.

Where to Stay

There aren’t many resorts that exclusively feature ski-in/ski-out accommodation, but Sun Peaks is one of the rare few. We have selected a fantastic choice of hotels, lodges and condos in premium slopeside locations, allowing you to ski right to your door. What could be better after a long day tearing up the slopes? Our accommodation ranges from grand luxury hotels with amazing facilities and glorious alpine views, to smaller boutique hotels and family-run lodges with bags of charm, to picturesque condo complexes with plenty of social space for families.

Ralph Henderson


An excellent service again, we have used Ski Independence on 4 occasions now and have been extremely happy on all occasions. Nick Laver was excellent to deal with and catered to all our needs and requests. Thanks again for all your help and support. I have already booked another trip with Nick for next season and look forward to yet another excellent trip with Ski Independence.

Great service as ever - with Covid restrictions it was a bit daunting committing to a ski holiday in Canada but we are so glad we did. Well worth all the extra paperwork and testing. So good to get back on the slopes.
