Winter Activities at Sun Peaks


Not familiar with a snow-bike? Don’t worry; snow-bikes are simply bicycles with skis and tracts instead of wheels. They’re a blast to ride! A 2 hour training session is recommended.

First Trax Breakfast

Every Wednesday at 8:00am, First Trax ticket holders get one hour to experience what all avid skiers dream of by getting the mountain all to themselves! 9:00am sharp is when the mountain officially opens to the rest of the public. The package also includes a breakfast at the Sunburst Restaurant which is available until 10:00am.

Ice Skating

A full sized outdoor skating rink is open throughout the winter months and offers rentals for skates and optional hockey equipment. The rink is located just outside the Village next to the Sports Centre.

Kamloops Blazers

Just because you’re out in the mountains doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some live hockey action! The WHL is ranked directly under the NHL meaning games played here are highly competitive. Furthermore, most Canadian NHL players originated from the WHL so by attending a game, you might be witnessing the next Sidney Crosby before his big break!

Tube Time – Tube Park

Tube Time is a great alternative to skiing and is fun for all ages. Tube Time Park is located directly beside the Village Platter Lift and is open daily between 12:00pm and 7:00pm.
