Sun Peaks used to be called Tod Mountain. The ski area's owners, who purchased it in 1992, have invested over $375 million and they are set to invest another $70 million. Their goal is to position Sun Peaks as a four-season destination resort. You will find 122 runs on an average snowfall of around 220 inches. They have 12 lifts (chair and surface). The area has plenty of open bowl skiing. Off the slopes at Sun Peaks, seven on-mountain hotels with many condominiums and chalets providing 3,000 beds. Additional lodging is in Kamloops, 45 minutes from the area.
The addition of 522 acres of new terrain, in time for the 2014/15 season, will take the ski area to 4,200 acres, second only in size, in Canada, to Whistler. The current domain of 3,678 acres will be augmented by 110 acres of trails on West Morrisey (between the Back in Time and Static Cling trails) and 412 acres of runs on the current back-country area of Gil’s, atop Mt. Tod. At this point Gil’s will remain hike in (from 5 Mile trail accessed via the Burfield chairlift) /ski out, with an outrun at the bottom increasing the current vertical.

Great interior BC ski resort!
Three main points to remember:
1) No lineups
2) Dry interior powder
3) Mostly ski-in, ski-out
Not near a major population centre so the crowds are not a factor. Friendly locals! Total snow is on the light side but enough to keep it fresh.
