What is it like at Sun Peaks?

The village is traditional with a lovely alpine feel You won’t see any concrete blocks here, and it all sits tightly between three snowy mountains.  Everything is a stone’s throw away – the ski lifts, bars, nightclubs and restaurants. The local residents are lovely and incredibly enthusiastic about Snowbombing too!

The accommodation are great, whatever your budget – whether you book an alpine Condo or a four star Suite.

Condos are very spacious, with catering equipment and kitchen area, plus a lounge area and bedrooms. If you’re looking for extra luxury, some also include your own private hot tub! Have a look at the accommodations on our booking page.

How reliable is the snow?

Sun Peaks sits at 2893ft, with the ski lifts taking you up to 7060ft, where you will find more snow than you can imagine. A great bonus of going to Sun Peaks for Snowbombing is that the spring rays allow you to board or ski in a t-shirt, hang out on the terraces for food, and drink in the sunshine! Of course, no resort in the world can ever guarantee perfect snow, but Sun Peaks does a pretty good job with over 6 meters of snowfall every year!  

Is it suitable for beginners, intermediates and advanced skiers/boarders?

Sun Peaks has slopes to cater for skiers and boarders of all abilities. For more information on the mountain, please visit Sun Peaks Resort.

What if I can’t ski or snowboard?

Don’t worry, plenty of Snowbombers have never been to the mountains before! If you want to ski/board, lessons of all skill set will be available for purchase through Sun Peaks Resort.

Where are good places to eat & drink?

There is truly something for everyone’s taste! From locally roasted coffees to fresh made smoothies, fine dining to juicy burgers, award winning cinnamon buns to tasty paninis, you will never be short of options for refuelling!

Are the parties on the mountain or in the village?

WHAT TO BRING

If you’ve never been to a snow resort before, here’s a little rundown on what you need to bring:

• Waterproofs – Ski pants and jacket are the best.
• Layers – These will keep you warmer than one big jacket.
• Sunscreen – The climate is very deceiving, making it easy to get burnt even if you think there isn’t much sun and the altitude makes you more susceptible to the UV. Make sure you bring plenty of decent sunscreen and lip balm for those dry days.
• Sunglasses/Goggles – Nothing hurts more like the sun in your eyes! Make sure they are UV protectant and waterproof if you plan on hitting the slopes.
• Footwear – Bring a decent pair of waterproof boots or snow boots and the terrain can be slippery.
• Board/Ski – Don’t forget your snow equipment! But if you do, don’t worry: snoq equipment is available for rent at the resort.

And if you’ve never been on a Snowbombing holiday, then here’s what to bring:

• Costumes – Don’t forget to flaunt your style! Theme Days will be in full effect.
• Towels/Swimwear – Hot tubs and pools are available if you want to relax your muscles.
• Totems/Flags – Rep your Snowbomber crew and bring things to easily spot one another. It ain’t a Westcoast festival without something that glows!
