Skiing in Sun Peaks
Sun Peaks has three mountains to enjoy. The original and highest is Tod, which offers a wide range of runs above and below the treeline. There's something for everyone, from fast long blue and green cruisers up to steep sharp blacks like Bluff, Intimidator and the 2km (1.25 mile) long Challenger; with everything in between, particularly glades. The trails are served by a high speed chairlift network and Sun Peaks has a reputation for immaculate slope grooming.
The top of the mountain has open bowl skiing and there's back country cat skiing just over the ski area boundary. Next to Tod sits Sundance Mountain, home to some of the best groomed runs and terrain parks for children and beginners.
The resort opened its third mountain, Mt. Morrisey, for the 2001-2 season. Mt. Morrisey's 1378ft / 420 m vertical compares favourably with Sundance Mountain across the valley and offers spectacular vistas of Top of the World Mountain at 6824ft / 2080m. Mostly north facing, Morrisey is already famous for its dry powder and glade or tree skiing. Skiers and riders can enjoy the thrill of descending through open forests, but on groomed pitches a treat traditionally reserved for advanced enthusiasts.
In order to make the most of this huge choice you may wish to take a free tour of the mountain first thing in the morning or after lunch with Sun Guides; you also have the opportunity to ski with Canadian Olympic Champion Nancy Greene.
Sun Peaks is also one of the world's few speed skiing centres. Racers use The Headwall track which is fully accessible by two chairlifts with a mid-mountain restaurant next to the finish area for viewing. The track is a steep technical speed course on which racers go from zero km/h to 170 km/h in 8 to 10 seconds.
If you like your skiing a little slower and flatter, check out the 40km of groomed cross country trails.
