Other than downhill skiing and snowboarding, other Sun Peaks activities include cross country skiing, snow shoeing, or a relaxing treatment at the day spa. Fun Peaks also has lots of family oriented things to do. The activities desk in the day lodge is a useful spot to get some help with planning Sun Peaks activities.

Backcountry Ski Tours Sun Peaks

Private tours of the backcountry near the ski area are offered by the resort, and are geared towards intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders.

Cross Country Skiing Sun Peaks

Cross country skiing at Sun Peaks is rather popular. The 30km of groomed and track set trails start right at the village. Some of the Nordic skiing is accessed via the Morrisey chairlift, providing really great views from the Holy Cow trail. A couple of the Sun Peaks ski shops offer rental equipment.

Snowshoeing Tours

Snowshoeing is an enjoyable way to explore the forests on the myriad of snowshoe trails that leave from the village. You can head out on your own, but it’s great to take a tour with Sun Peaks Adventures to make the most of the experience. Choose from a couple of full day tours or 2-hour options. 

We went on a Moonlight Snowshoe and S’mores tour which was a nice way to give the legs a stretch after a hard day of skiing (departs 6pm on Friday nights). We went for a reasonably easy 1km snowshoe up to a little hut where our guide made a roaring fire and we toasted marshmallows to put in our s’mores. Whilst we sipped on some hot cider, the charismatic guide read a little historic Canadian poetry which added to the ambience. Then we snow shoed back down whilst admiring the twinkling lights of the village.

All tours include informative guiding and tuition, use of snowshoes, pant gaiters, and snowshoe trail passes.

Family Activities at Sun Peaks

Sun Peaks has lots of other activities to do with the family. The Sports and Aquatic Centre has a pool and a teenage hangout zone. Other examples of activities include a tubing park, ice-skating, dog sledding, and sleigh rides.

Snowmobiling Sun Peaks

Sun Peaks Adventure Tours offer snowmobile tours, an amazingly awesome fun activity. They provide 2 hour and 4 hour tours during the day, as well as evening wiener roast tours. The tours travel on trails but there’s also opportunity to head into the powder to rip it up!

Sun Peaks Massage & Day Spa

If you’ve trashed your body on the slopes or just need some R&R, Sun Peaks Resort has a few options for massage and spa services. The Sun Peaks Spa, located in the Kookaburra Lodge, offers massage as well as other treatments. There is also a Sun Peaks Spa Express in the centre of the village offering a smaller line up of treatments. There is also a Sun Peaks mobile massage service called Hands on the Move.
