Continuing on with the 2018 Sun Peaks expansion plans announced earlier, the summer of 2019 will include initial construction steps toward the Crystal Chairlift replacement in 2020.
The always-popular-but-back-of-the-leg bashing triple Crystal Chairlift will be replaced with another Doppelmayr fixed grip quad chair, which will further increase the capacity of skiers making their way to the top.
The new Crystal chair base will also be moved slightly closer to the Sunburst Lodge, and will terminate near the existing Burfield chair at the Top of the World. The extra 19 meters (62 feet) will give Crystal Chair skiers easier access to popular areas like the West Bowl and The Gil’s, and new grading work will give all skiers easier access from Top of the World to the ski runs previously reached at the terminus of the Crystal chair.
Engineering work, electrical, tower base work etc. will happen during the summer of 2019, and the lift will go in during the summer of 2020. The cost of this Sun Peaks improvement is around $5 million.

Caring owners and reviews like this that was recently received by Jacqueline, owners of Trail's Edge #15...."Jacqueline was a super host! We had a wonderful time in her home and all the caring extra touches she put into the house made a great house superb. The house was clean and we were very grateful for the wine, chocolate, popcorn and hand warmers - thank you!!! The kids loved the play room in the basement and for the adults the apres ski jacuzzi was the best part of each day. We loved that it was a true ski in ski out house - even for our kids. And the kitchen had every appliance/pot/container we could ask for. Thank you so much. Jacqueline even went out of her way helping us with booking accommodation at the beginning of our trip and letting us use the garage to store our bags on our last day. We will be recommending your Trail's Edge townhouse to all our friends!"
Now accepting reservations for the 2019/2020 ski season.
We stayed at Nancy and Paul's condo for 12 wonderful days.
Cosy, warm and inviting plus it had every little thing you could ask for to make it a home away from home. Well stocked pantry, cosy fire, inviting hot tub, plenty of room and stunning views out of those amazing windows.
Easy ski in ski out location and a convenient few steps away from the regular shuttle run to the village a few minutes away.
Thanks so much for making this a holiday of a lifetime!! We'll definitely be back !!

Two families spent a couple nights over the holidays and thoroughly enjoyed your Trapper's Landing townhouse.
The layout of the place was excellent providing lots of room for 5 children ages 5-12. We had everything we needed and it was so nice to have the basement living space for the kids to play.
Location was amazing especially given the new Orient lift recently opened nearby. The garage provided a great place to get ready for skiing everyday.
Thank you so much for squeezing us in over the holidays, it was just perfect and we can't wait to come back.
Oh and the snow was just amazing too! Sharon S - Dec. 2018
“Beautiful NEW Ski-in/Ski-out townhouse STEPS to village, backing onto the creek!”
Wonderful Christmas with my family! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
My family and I enjoyed a lovely 12 days in Sun Peaks! The Village Walk townhouse was gorgeous! It was comfortable, well designed and perfect for a large family.
They house is split between three levels which made it nice for everyone who wanted time away from the rest of the family. The kitchen was beautiful and had all the right appliances for making meals all week.
The house is less than a five minute walk to the village. The house was also well suited for skiers! Ski in Ski out and a great entry with plenty of room for all the shoes, hats, gloves, jackets etc.
Additionally, it had a heated floor, which was lovely after a long day of skiing. Lastly, the owners were lovely and super organized in providing information and resources for the house.
Thank you for letting us stay in your home!
Fans of Sun Peaks were thrilled when world famous National Geographic recently recommended Sun Peaks Resort as a "Best Winter Trip" in their 2019 article.
In their words, "Snowshoeing, dogsledding, storm-watching, and the illuminated Capilano Suspension Bridge all make British Columbia a favorite winter destination. But if you’re planning on skiing, ski-biking, or snow-limo-riding—avoid the long lift lines at Whistler and head for Sun Peaks, Canada’s second largest ski area, where three powdery peaks and 4,270 acres of skiable terrain lead down to one central village."
We couldn't agree more National Geographic - no matter the season, plan a visit to beautiful Sun Peaks Resort, Canada's Alpine Village.
And if you need Sun Peaks Best accommodation, we would be pleased to help.
Sun Peaks ski-in ski-out accommodations are considered to be some of the best in the world - which is best for you?
So thrilled to have earned another 5 Star review in our first review of the 2018/19 ski season. "We were four adults (one couple, two singles) spending 4 nights at Sun Peaks and Paul and Nancy's condo was just the perfect spot for us. It's located right across the street from the Nordic Centre, which was great for us as we took a two-day skate ski camp. I believe it is also ski-in, ski-out, although the day we alpine skied we drove to the main lodge as we were renting equipment (you could walk to the main lodge in ten minutes - ditto to any of the restaurants in the village). The condo is comfy, decorated in an alpine style, comfy beds (I think they were memory foam mattresses?), floor heating in the bathrooms, and a really well stocked kitchen. It was dead quiet at night, and the hot tub was a real treat for our sore muscles apres ski! I would highly recommend."

Sun Peaks Real Estate - Is It A Good Time To Invest In A Sun Peaks Recreational Ski Resort Property
Stoked to see the first tower of the new Sun Peaks Orient chairlift being set in place today!
This new lift is located right across from Trapper's Landing and Stone's Throw (seen in the background here) and will take skiers above the Morrisey Express overpass and up Sundance Mountain.
The new chairlift is expected to be up and running by Christmas of 2018 and will provide fantastic ski-out options from many of the east village accommodations.
Discounted Sun Peaks accommodations are also available in Stone's Throw, Trail's Edge and Trapper's Landing for extended stays prior to December 15th, and while lift passes aren't sold in Costco, discounted lift passes for the other days can be purchased online in advance through Liftopia.

"Hasta La Vista", baby now has a new meaning at Sun Peaks.
It is the name of the newest intermediate/blue run at Sun Peaks, and goes directly under the new Sun Peaks Orient Chairlift.
It starts at an elevation of around 1,525 meters (5,003 feet) and takes you back to either the Orient or the Morrisey Express chairlifts.
The Main Village Connector is the new beginner/green run at the top of the Orient chairlift that has been cut to take skiers on a gentle grade across to the Rambler trail on Sundance where they can then ski directly back down to the main village.
The Orient Chairlift is currently under construction and is expected to be in place for the 2018 holiday season (weather conditions permitting).
What are the best Sun Peaks hotels and lodges for your family and why are they the best, and other Sun Peaks Vacation Rental optionss
For those still wanting to invest in Sun Peaks real estate......And more news - another new Sun Peaks real estate development was announced today - Elevation.
Following the most recent developments at Sun Peaks, Village Walk (sold out) Echo Landing (sold out), and Peaks West (units still available), this looks like a fantastic new Sun Peaks Real Estate development.
Elevation is coming soon to the east village area, and will be the first multi-family development at Sun Peaks to combine the beauty of a high alpine location and views with easy ski-in/ski-out access via the new Orient Express chairlift to Sun Peaks Resort. From this unique location you can enjoy the runs on Sundance Mountain and/or ski down to the Morrisey Express. They apparently will offer stylish designs, smart space planning and exceptional views of all three mountains and the mountain valley.
Unfortunately for visitors to Sun Peaks and most other popular destinations in British Columbia, the new NDP government changed the BC Family day from the second Monday in February, to the third Monday, starting in 2019.
This is now the same Monday as Alberta and Ontario celebrate Family Day, and as our neighbors to the south celebrate Presidents' Week - always very popular periods at Sun Peaks and other tourist destinations.
While some folks are happy since they can now think about visiting family in the other area that celebrates the same day, many others are finding it impossible to find accommodation.
We sold out months ago, but know of 5 beautiful vacation rentals which, at the time of posting, were still available for this period.
1) Beautiful, new Village Walk unit that is a 3-bedroom that can sleep up to 8 (the owners may be adding another bed closer to winter but we aren't guaranteeing anything yet)
2 and 3) Luxurious Village Walk 4 bedroom units that are both owned by the same people, who have put an exorbitant amount of care in to each home. They've added sound proofing between the units, on demand hot water, a custom made frameless sofabed, and an ultraviolet hot tub installed before the winter which effectively eradicates 99.9% of bacteria in the water.
The only differences between the homes are the layouts are mirrored and one can sleep up to 10, while the other can sleep up to 8.
4) A Chalet, which is a 2-bedroom+loft ski chalet, that can sleep up to 10 but you'll have to see if the bedding configuration will work for your group.
5) Kookaburra Lodge which is a massive penthouse suite with over 2200 sq ft and can sleep up to 11:
It's about the same size as any of the Village Walk places which is pretty incredible considering it's in a hotel-style building! The Kookaburra Lodge is directly across the street from the main village on one side and the sports centre+skating rink on the other side.
Contact us if you're interested - we have already sent three families these links so they won't last long.
