Sun Peaks has a friendly, attractive small village that has been developed since the mid-1990s. And last season's ski area expansion means that Sun Peaks is now the second biggest ski area in Canada - only Whistler is bigger. But that doesn't make it big by Alpine standards. The terrain is nicely varied but a keen skier could cover the groomed trails in a couple of days. We still suggest combining it with a stay at another resort such as Whistler. Until 1993 Sun Peaks was Tod Mountain, a local hill for the residents of nearby Kamloops. Since then the ski area has been expanded, and a small, attractive resort village has developed. There are regular transfers to other resorts such as Whistler - making a two-centre trip easy.
