Sun Peaks Shopping

Sun Peaks Resort has a decent amount of shopping. This isn’t a destination for shopper-holics but there are several boutiques and specialty stores to wander through, various Sun Peaks ski shops, souvenir stores, and shops for staple requirements.

Sun Peaks Ski Shops

Whether you’re looking for new skis or snowboard, a new snow outfit, or new thermals to cope with the butt freezing time on the Burf chair, there are various Sun Peaks ski shops and snowboard stores. Most of these ski shops are just small to medium sized so you’ll need to shop around to find what you’re looking for. Here are just some examples of Sun Peaks ski shops.

Jardine’s in the Hearthstone Lodge is probably the largest of the ski/snowboard stores at Sun Peaks. They have the latest hardwear with skis from Elan, Head, Line, Rossignol, Salomon, Volkl, Blizzard, Nordica, and Kastle, as well as boards from Ride Snowboards. And considering the village is ski-in ski-out, it’s easy to demo skis or snowboards here.

Jardine’s sells a large range of Spyder clothing and lots of ski and snowboard accessories. When we visited they had what seemed like a trillion beanies, or touks as the Canadians like to call them! Jardine’s also has Sun Peaks souvenir T-shirts.

McSportie’s is an old school ski shop which is lead by a couple of old chaps who really know their stuff when it comes to downhill and cross country skiing. In addition to rentals, they have a good range of skis and boots for sale. They also sell a little ski clothing and lots of accessories.

Southside Board Shop is the largest dedicated snowboard shop, selling boards, soft goods and lots of accessories.

Sun Peaks has a few outdoor clothing stores including North Face which has clothing for men, women and children, whilst the Helly Hansen store has a disappointing assortment of HH clothing.

Souvenir & General Shopping Sun Peaks

The John Tod Trading Co is the hub for Sun Peaks logowear, located under the clock tower. Here you’ll find lots of different pieces of clothing with Sun Peaks emblazoned across it.

The village also has a few gift shops that sell Sun Peaks souvenirs as well as general Canadian knick-knacks and keepsakes. A couple of these gift shops double as art galleries. Tree Line Studios and the Lone Wolf Gallery are definitely worth checking out for an array of art and interesting gifts.

One of the most popular shops at Sun Peaks is the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Shop. Once you’ve been spoiled with the Patagonian chocolate shops in Argentina it’s a little difficult to pay that much for chocolate in Canada, but undoubtedly you’ll still be lured into buying something in this shop. They even have powderhounds chocolates; a mix of coconut with white, milk or dark chocolate!

Grocery Shopping

The Bluebird Market grocery store is located in the Delta Residences. This is a medium sized supermarket with lots of basics, a small meat section, and a little fresh produce such as fruit and vegetables.

Alternatively there are a couple of grocery delivery services available such as Sun Peaks Cargo.

Sun Peaks also has a big liquor store that stocks a large range of BC wines, beers, Alco pops, and spirits.
