Welcome to our Best Sun Peaks website!
This site is all about Sun Peaks Resort and area - one of the top 10 ski resorts in North America and is the second best and as of 2014 the second biggest ski resort in all of Canada.
Sun Peaks Resort is second in size only to Whistler/Blackcomb in Canada, and is considered a four season resort that is much more compact, family friendly, affordable, and consistently offers light, dry champagne powder and shorter line-ups.
Sun Peaks is only a 45 minute ride and is easily accessible from nearby Kamloops airport, or about a 4.5 hour ride from Vancouver International Airport, the lower mainland or from Whistler. Sun Peaks shuttle buses are available for hire.
And even better, Whistler seasons pass holders save 50% on Sun Peaks lift passes so they can enjoy the best of both worlds - and often do!
In March of 2021, Sun Peaks was awarded the Safe travels Stamp for their operational safety and hygiene practices, further making it a safe, family-friendly staycation destination.
In our humble opinion, Sun Peaks is the best four-season family-friendly skiing, snowboarding and recreation resort around, with the best of so many things to see and do at any time of year.

Personally, we think the best place to stay in Sun Peaks is our BestSunPeaks 4+ bedroom, family-friendly, ski-in/ski-out townhouse in the luxurious Trapper's Landing townhouse development.
It is wonderful, spacious, and comfortably sleeps up to 10 people.
Or our spectacular two bedroom plus private enclosed loft BestSunPeaks condo with amazing 20 foot high windows with great views, private hot tub and is located in Stone's Throw - one of the best ski-in/ski-out locations at Sun Peaks Resort and sleeps up to 8 people.
We also promote other Sun Peaks Vacation Rentals by Owners that may be of interest to you in developments such as Settler's Crossing, Trail's Edge, Timberline Village, the new Village Walk or Echo Landing complex, Crystal Forest, Stone's Throw and many more Sun Peaks vacation rentals.
