Final Preparation in West Morrisey, Gil’s and the Rockstar Energy Terrain Park for the 2014-15 Ski Season
Sun Peaks, BC (September 29, 2014) – Skiers and riders at Sun Peaks will have more options than ever before for powder turns, face shots and steep and deep terrain for the upcoming season.
The addition of two new alpine zones brings Sun Peaks Resort to 4,270 skiable acres this winter. This ranks the resort as the second largest ski area in Canada. All new terrain will be classified as expert or high intermediate, significantly increasing the advanced terrain available and continuing to diversify the Sun Peaks ski experience.
“It’s incredible to see the amount of work we’ve accomplished in the short window we have available at this elevation,” says Jamie Tattersfield, head of mountain operations for Sun Peaks Resort Corporation. “And there is plenty more to come in future winters as well.”
Three new ski trails are nearing completion in this area. Still unnamed, Run “G”, has been prepared top-to-bottom and will be buffed to a “ski-ready” state for Mt. Morrisey’s opening day. With an incredibility steep pitch, skiers and riders will roll over the upper crest into the fall line, bringing the fourth fairway below and legendary Burfield trails “Freddy’s Nightmare” and “Challenger” across the valley into plain view for the very first time. Guests will be able to ski the entire vertical to Fairways and Mountain View Drive, or choose to take the higher connector run back to Static Cling ski run and the Morrisey Express Chairlift. In addition, the upper sections of ski runs “B” and “C” are nearing completion and will also be skiable to the Static Cling connector this winter.
