There are so many Sun Peaks summer activities that appeal to all age, fitness and interest levels that it is hard to choose the best summer activity at Sun Peaks Resort after all the life bursts out in the spring.

Be sure to reserve your summer hiking and/or bike park lift passes early!

The 2023 summer season starts June 16th and will run 7 days a week through almost all of September, 10am - 7 pm until Sept. 4th, and then 10am - 5pm until Sept. 24.  Market Days will continue on Sundays until October 8th.

Save 10% on bike rentals from McSporties just by mentioning BestSunPeaks when you book.

The earlier you pre-book your Sun Peaks lift passes, the more you save!

From leisurely cross country or alpine meadow mountain biking or hiking to extreme downhill thrills at one of the best up & coming bike parks in the world, Sun Peaks has something for everyone and makes for a great summer vacation destination.  The summer of 2022 also saw Sundance Mountain opening with new lift-accessed bike trails as well as new free to ride trails and the summer of 2023 will have even more trails to explore

Sun Peaks typically enjoys sunny warm days and cool mountain nights which is perfect for an Okanagan holiday.

And better yet, when everyone else is raising their accommodation pricing for summer holidays, Sun Peaks  offers low, low summer prices.

We also offer great nightly and weekly rates on our Best Sun Peaks condo or Best Sun Peaks Townhouse or other summer Sun Peaks accommodation anytime after the end of ski season so if you want a great deal and some stress relief come on up!

Sun Peaks offers a great climate, fantastic prices, easy access to so many activities, and a wonderful, safe family holiday destination - come on up and see for yourself. 

Head up the hill to chill!
