Canada’s second largest ski resort is investing $60million in resort upgrades in time for this winter. The investments are aimed at improving the mountain, the village and the ski-in, ski-out access to further improve the ski experience at Sun Peaks.
The resort upgrades include improvements to the lift network, renovations to the resorts flagship hotel, village infrastructure projects and a range of new property developments.
One of the main on-mountain upgrades is a new four person chairlift which will rise from the East village. The base of the new chairlift will be opposite the existing Morrisey lift where the Umbrella Café is currently located. This new chairlift will improve access to the mountain with return access to the East Village on a green run, which is consistent with all other resort lifts. Other ski trails are currently in development and aim to offer both family friendly blue runs and gladed tree runs in an area of the resort which is currently under-rated and under-utilised.
In addition, the resort will also increase the capacity of the Sundance Express lift by 30% by adding new carriers to the lift line. This is the most used chairlift so it makes perfect sense to make it even easier to access some of the most popular runs in the resort like Sundance and the Rockstar Energy Terrain Park.
Sun Peaks already has a great reputation for well groomed runs and the addition of two new snow-cats to their grooming fleet will ensure the resort continues to offer skiers a great time on perfectly groomed corduroy.
Off the mountain, Sun Peaks plans to renovate the resorts flagship hotel with all 221 rooms at the Sun Peaks Grand Hotel being upgraded.
Other developments will see a major expansion to the resorts sports centre and new ski-in, ski-out luxury townhomes being built at Villagewalk and new condos and townhomes being built at Echo Landing located on the Sun Peaks golf course area.
Sun Peaks is Canada’s second largest ski area. There are three mountains to explore which sit directly above the charming alpine village. The resort is an intermediates playground with lots of long, well groomed runs that wind back into the village. At the base of the mountain, the resort is ski-through and offers plenty of slope-side accommodation with doorstep ski-in, ski-out convenience – making it the perfect choice for your next family ski trip.
