        West Bowl Ski Area - can't wait to explore the bowl area again!

New Sun Peaks West Bowl LiftNew West Bowl Lift for the 2024/25 ski season

Perhaps the most exciting of the 2024 Sun Peaks changes will be the completion of the West Bowl Express chairlift which was formally announced by Sun Peaks Resort in April, 2023 as the long-awaited replacement for the infamous West Bowl T-bar that was removed several years earlier.

It will once again be supplied by Doppelmayr, but unlike the new Orient and Crystal chairlifts which were fixed grip quads, the new West Bowl Express will be a higher speed detachable quad and will come at a cost of around $12 million.

The new 1,600 meter long higher-speed detachable lift (5m/second and just under 6 minutes to get to the top) with 1,000 vertical feet of elevation gain begins taking guests to the highest elevation area of Sun Peaks in time for the 2024/25 ski season.

While it is within the current resort boundaries and won't open up any new terrain area, it will create a nice increase in the length of the current runs in the West Bowl area.
