May in Sun Peaks Resort

Believe it or not, May is an interesting time to be at Sun Peaks Resort.

Yes the ski lifts have stopped turning, and the spectacular wildflower hiking, mountain biking trails, and free outdoor summer concerts that Sun Peaks is known for in the summer are still a few months away.

And yes, many of the stores and restaurants are closed so the operators and their hard working staff can take a break between busy seasons.

But for those who enjoy nature, a nice slow pace, and the tranquility of an off-season ski resort in the mountains, this is an exciting time!

As the snow slowly melts, life everywhere here is quickly reawakening – bursting out to enjoy the warming rays of the sun in the 6 months they have before the snow covers them again.

No sooner than the snow pulls back, the chutes and flowers begin to unfurl, reaching for the sun. Frogs begin croaking; bears and other animals awaken and start their search for food; foxes, lynx, deer, snowshoe hare and many others can be spotted with their newborns out and about and perhaps looking for some lovin’.

The ice on the lakes melts, the fish begin jumping as the insects fill the air (yes – bug spray may be a great idea!), and the Sun Peaks waterfall roars to life with all the runoff from the mountains above. Canoes and standup paddleboards are launched by the locals looking to explore once again.

The air smells amazing with all the surrounding pine trees free to grow after shedding their white winter coat.

Fresh mountain air, invigorating nature walks, beautiful scenery, and what appears to be a quiet, sleepy time, is not sleepy at all if you care to look a little closer.

Prices of Sun Peaks accommodation are at their lowest point, making this an ideal time to relax, enjoy the warmth of the sun and rejuvenate after a long, cold, dark winter.

And the private hot tub after your day with a glass of wine from a Kamloops winery or pint of delicious craft beer from a Kamloops brew pub is the perfect end to each wonderful day.

Read on for more Sun Peaks spring activities and book your accommodation direct with our owners to get the best rates.

One of the Best Places for Families to Stay at Sun Peaks!

Thank you for a wonderful stay at Sun Peaks.

Last year we skied at Silver Star and the year prior to that we spent a week at Big White. We like to try a new ski area each year and Sun Peaks came highly recommended to us.

We loved every minute of our time there. Your condo was perfect - we think you have one of the best units there - amazing views and so private. We settled in quickly and felt very much at home.

We will definitely be in touch for our next Sun Peaks trip.

Great Activities For Non-Skiers at Sun Peaks Resort

As a non-skier, I found so much to do in Sun Peaks!

Dog sled tours, night time horse sleigh ride with the beautiful village lights, Sun Peaks Snow limo tour, Groomers tour with Ben who was wonderful!!! Ice fishing excursion, yummy restaurants (especially Mt. Tod crepes with green eggs and ham, and the great free village shuttle bus.

I just wished I had discovered Sun Peaks ski bikes earlier as I must have thought them not for me somehow when I perused the "what to do" site.

Altogether Sun Peaks was a great place and super-size. Please don’t grow bigger!

Review of 47 Timberline Village Sun Peaks

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sun Peaks Timberline Village.

The townhouse was fantastic. We stayed for 12 nights with 5 guests. We cooked each meal at home and had groceries delivered from Kamloops by Sun Peaks Cargo who were excellent and charged about $20 to pick up & deliver a weeks worth of groceries to our door (after we had ordered online).

Every possible cooking tool/instrument that we could have wanted was provided in the kitchen to make that an easy & economic process.

The hot tub was a highlight. We used it everyday after skiing & having towels specifically for that purpose at the door to the hot tub was a lovely touch. We enjoyed the popcorn maker, and the lovely bottle of wine that was waiting for us on arrival.

Instructions and communication with Ana was incredibly clear. Rooms and house was exactly as advertised, and even better than the photos. It was great having the garage to store skis and a heated area at the entrance as the drying room. No need to carry any ski clothes or equipment upstairs. The location was very handy to the village and chairlifts without being right in the village (which was a bit noisier, I know people woken up early morning in the village by snow being cleared from the road, and also partying). Beds and linen very comfortable, it was well cleaned and presented. The house was set up with everything we could have needed and we hope to stay there again In the future!!

Thank-you for such a wonderful holiday.
