SUN PEAKS SKI & RIDE TRIP

Quick Details

Tour Info:

Sun Peaks is famous for light, dry, “champagne powder” and European style village that is nestled at the base of three mountains. Enjoy award-winning downhill skiing and snowboarding and relax in upscale accommodation located at the base of the mountain with a huge outdoor heated pool.

These trips are not just about the skiing, it’s also about bringing like-minded people together to have FUN both on and off the mountain.  From the time you board the bus, we make it easy for our guests to interact with each other and provide the opportunity to meet up throughout the trip including set meeting times on the mountain so your guide can show you the best runs, and the themed party night! 

Each of our ski / ride trips has a theme and although it’s not required we do encourage our guests to dress up according to the theme. You can dress up for the evening parties, while skiing / riding, or all weekend! This is a great fun way to identify all of the other guests on your trip. Prizes will be given for the best outfit and the longest duration of wearing your costume!
