Sun Peaks


Sun Peaks opened its cross country ski trails to the public Friday, November 8th—two weeks ahead of schedule and the earliest opening on record.

Recent snowfalls have allowed the resort to open early, explains Phil Youwe, Nordic coordinator for Sun Peaks Resort. “Our groomers have been busy track packing the trails to solidify our snow base. This means very good early season conditions.”

Ten kilometres of trails are groomed and track set for classic and skating on Vista, McGillivray Lake, and Otter Trail. Access is via Parking Lot #5. More trails will open as crews continue their early-season preparation.

Early season trail fees are $10 and will adjust as more terrain opens. Tickets can be purchased at Guest Services in the Village Day Lodge and Elevation Sports in the village centre.

The Nordic Centre and McGillivray Lake Cabin will open on November 16.
