"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).

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.
Best Sun Peaks News and Special Offers for those planning a summer or winter Sun Peaks Resort vacation
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.

I would highly recommend this Sun Peaks condo and playing the Sun Peaks Resort golf course to everyone.
Three of us were up at Sun Peaks for a boy's golfing vacation. Our accommodations were top notch and had lots of room for the 3 of us. The place was easy to find, kept extremely clean and was located only minutes from the golf course. Dave O., Aug 2018
The 2018/19 ski season is not far away and an Avalanche Skills Training (AST -1) Course is coming to Sun Peaks Dec. 8 & 9.
This is the course where you’ll learn how to recognize avalanche terrain and how to self-rescue. AST 1 is a two day course with both classroom and field components. You need to take this course first and so should your friends because just one person trained in a group is not enough. Everyone in your group should take an AST 1. Recognize an AST 1 course is only the beginning - the avalanche pros will tell you avalanche training is a life-long process. This course is essential for those who venture out of bounds, off the trails or into the backcountry. You don't need any experience to take this course. It is a must for everyone recreating in the backcountry or slackcountry.
What you will learn in an AST 1:
-avalanche formation and release - identify avalanche terrain -the basics of trip planning -optimal use of tools and resources -forecasts to mitigate your avalanche risk -use appropriate travel techniques in avalanche terrain -intro to companion rescue
Limited Space - only $289. Equipment is provided.

"Thank you for your email. Yes, the smoke and chilly temperatures on Sunday were a bit of a disappointment, but we still had a great trip. The kids loved the mountain biking so much that we had to drag them off of the hill yesterday at 5:00!
Your chalet was perfect for our group. The kids loved using the hot tub, playing video games and watching movies on the downstairs level and the dining area was a perfect spot for all of us to enjoy meals and card games.
We were even able to sit outside on the deck and enjoy the sunshine before heading out to the concert on Friday night.
We will definitely give you a great review and hope to stay at your beautiful town home again in the future!Amy S., August 2018

Sun Peaks Golf Course Now Open
Best Sun Peaks reasons to come experience the Sun Peaks Golf Course this summer:
ACCOMMODATION SPECIALS:Our Trapper's Landing townhouse and Stone's Throw condo back onto the 16th fairway, the highest elevation tee in BC. Beautiful scenery, quiet location, and private hot tubs. Mention this post and we will give you 10% off our posted rates.
YOUR BALL FLIES FURTHER:Higher air means thinner air, so up here at BC’s highest elevation golf course your ball will fly further with no extra effort on your part. Sure, the distance gains may only be temporary, but it’s still a blast to let the big clubs rip at 1,200m above sea level.
COOLER TEMPERATURES:Sun Peaks is often up to ten degrees cooler than nearby Kamloops, where mid-summer temperatures regularly hit a scorching 35°C. Cool breezes, fresh mountain air, and an all-natural high.
HOLES FOR EVERYONE:The shorter, narrower front nine for the precision golfers (in reality or in their dreams), and the longer, wider fairways that curl around the East Village on the back nine. Something for everyone and a great 19th hole with amazing patio views for all.
BC’S HIGHEST ELEVATION TEE:Hole 16, surrounded by Stone's throw and Trapper's landing, is our favorite hole. The elevated tee deck is perched at 1,333m (or 4,353 ft for our American friends), earning it the honour of BC’s highest hole, and provides commanding views of Mt Morrisey, the village, and right down the valley.
FRESH MOUNTAIN AIR AND VIEWSThe unique ski resort location means the Golf Course is surrounded by a stunning backdrop of thick, lush forests, meandering creeks, and plenty of wildlife, nestled right at the base of our three peaks: Tod, Morrisey, and Sundance. You gotta love those mountain views!
FAMILY GOLF PRICING SPECIALS: Great new offers to get the 'hole' family swinging together!
SUN PEAKS SUMMER ACTIVITIES FOR ALL:Sun Peaks offers activities for all ages and athletic abilities. Cross-country trails or lift-accessed biking and hiking trails, kayak, canoe or stand-up paddling nearby, winery tours, spa treatments, segway tours, trout fishing and free outdoor concerts are just some of the ways you can spend a day in Sun Peaks.
New this summer - Monday Night is Family Night on the Sun Peaks Golf Course

Village Walk Sun Peaks - luxurious new vacation rentals at Sun Peaks Resort
With miles and miles of spectacular lift-accessed hiking and mountain biking trails, with access to alpine meadows exploding with colors from all the wildflowers and beautiful mountain vistas, Sun Peaks makes for a wonderful summer family resort vacation destination.
Make your summer vacation even more affordable by pre-purchasing your discounted Sun Peaks lift passes for hiking, mountain biking, or the Sun Peaks Bike Park ahead of time, and save up to 30% (click our Liftopia image on the lower left of each page for packages and best pricing).
There are also many free-to-use wilderness walking and mountain biking trails to some of the many lakes in the Sun Peaks area, as well as many other Sun Peaks Summer activities, festivals, free or low-cost activities, and free outdoor summer music concerts for all to enjoy.
Free-to-use trails are available as soon as the snow melts, and summer lifts start turning on June 22nd.
Low cost family-friendly accommodations are also available.
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.
