Closed - Contest Alert! Something for Everyone at Sun Peaks Resort

UPDATE: The contest has now closed. Winner will be randomly selected and contacted.

Just 50 kilometres from Kamloops, and a picturesque three-hour drive from Kelowna, sits Sun Peaks Resort. This spectacular resort is a family-friendly, up and coming four season playground and at its heart lies an alpine village that reminds one of a fairytale Austria.

All runs lead to the village at Sun Peaks, so parents need not worry about the kids getting lost, and you will find everything your family may need during your stay at this ski in/ski out resort.

For this latest stop in our Staycation series, we stayed at the Sun Peaks Grand Hotel and Conference Centre. This beautiful chalet-style hotel offers a luxurious experience, including three outdoor hot tubs, a heated outdoor swimming pool, a sauna, and more. Best of all, it is located in the heart of the Village centre, with five ski lifts right outside the doors.

The cozy rooms at the Sun Peaks Grand Hotel feature comfortable beds with fluffy down duvets so that you can relax your muscles and get a good night’s sleep after your day on the slopes.

Of course, the real reason to visit Sun Peaks in the winter is the skiing. Named the second best Canadian ski destination by Canadian Living magazine (Whistler Blackcomb came in first), Sun Peaks is the second largest ski area in BC and Canada. With 4,270 acres of space, the resort boasts 12 lifts, 135 trails, and an average of 6m of snowfall annually.

<who>Photo Credit: KelownaNow / KamloopsBCNow</who> Sun Peaks offers excellent, world-class skiing without the huge lineups found at larger resorts.

Lineups are practically non-existent at Sun Peaks, so you can spend more time on the slopes and less time waiting for the lift.

For those who aren’t skiers or snowboarders, there is still plenty to do at Sun Peaks Resort. Families will love going dog-sledding, skating, and snowmobiling. There is also a tube park that is popular with children of all ages, including the adults. It’s your chance to whiz down the hill and race one another. If you’re looking for something a bit slower pace, rent some snowshoes and explore the alpine trails.

Next up on the winter events calendar is the 18th Annual Sun Peaks Winter Okanagan Wine Festival. From January 14-24, wine lovers will converge on the mountain to experience wine, food, skiing and riding. Tickets are selling fast for the event, which called one of the Best Winter Parties in Canada, so don't wait to experience this special winter festival.

Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, some corporate bonding, or family fun, Sun Peaks has it all. Best of all, thanks to our friends at Sun Peaks Resort, you could experience the magic of this four-season playground for yourself!
