Frequently Asked Questions
|Is there a Grocery Store at Sun Peaks?||Yes, there are a few markets that stock a good selection of basics. For a weeks worth of groceries, we stop at the Safeway (on the way from the airport) or drive to the other side of Kamloops for a selection of 'big box' options (we can provide more details if you are interested). Alternatively, you could have your groceries delivered and arrive to a fully stocked fridge and cupboards. We have used grocery delivery services and, although pricey, we have been happy with their service. Please look on www.sunpeaksresort.com/the-village/services.aspx for more information.|
|Beer, Wine and Liquor?||There is a private store in the village with a good selection. The prices are a little higher than in Kamloops, but in a pinch it is convenient! There is a BC Liquor Store on the way from the airport.|
|What about discount lift tickets, ski school and equipment rentals||All these services are in the Village Day Lodge, with rentals also available at the different ski shops in the village. Lift tickets are available for discounted rates when you buy 3 or more days per person. And the ski school is great, for kids just learning to the expert honing his or her skills!|
|Where's the best source for information about Sun Peaks?||Start with the Sun Peaks Resort website. There is a wealth of information on activities, services, restaurants, etc.|
|What are some things I shouldn't forget to pack?||- Swimsuits and towels for the hot tub.|
|What do I need to access the wireless internet?||A wireless (wi-fi) card in your laptop. The set-up instructions are in the Information Binder in the unit.|
|Restaurant tips...||Take a look at the write-ups on sunpeaksresort.com. There is also a list in the Welcome Binder. They are all great! Especially when you just don't want to cook! Bella Italia for you guessed it, Italian. Make reservations, it can be popular, even in low season. Mountain High Pizza is always a favorite with the family. Powder Hounds has great schnitzel. Bottoms for lunch and apres-ski. The Sunburst Lodge (at the top of the Sunburst Chair) for sticky buns - but get there before 10am, they are a sell-out!|
|What is there to do other than ski?||Whatever strikes your fancy...see the Activities and Information Center in the Village Day Lodge for the list of activities on while you are there...also check out sunpeaksresort.com for information.|
|Where can I find the snow report?||We use sunpeaksresort.com, or on your mobile device www.sunpeaksresort.com/mobile. When you are onsite, tune to channel 2 on the TV for updated reports including the list of runs that were groomed the night before.|
We came to Sun Peaks for a wedding the summer of 2001. It was great fun and such a family friendly spot, that we came back that winter to ski. And we have been back every winter since. After renting so many times, we finally bought our own place, our home away from home.
We can't use it often enough, so want to give you the opportunity to enjoy Sun Peaks as much as we have!
It is a truly wonderful spot and it keeps getting better every year!
Awesome spring break
young family from BC
We had a fantastic time in Sun Peaks. Your condo was absolutely perfect and beyond what we were expecting. It's warm and welcoming and felt like home to us right away. Your location cannot be beat and I do believe you have one of the best units (top of the complex, away from traffic and super quiet). Great ski in and out for both downhill and cross-country. The skiing was probably some of the best we've ever done. We are quite sad to be leaving today and will most likely be back. My two boys had a great time playing in the snow banks around the complex.
Home away from home
A FlipKey verified reviewer from bc
We'd stayed in another unit in this same complex last summer. The complex is well run and the units are all clean. This complex is further away from the town centre, so it feels quieter and more private. This unit is on the top floor with private hot tub facing the ski hill and sunsets. The kitchen was very well stocked. There wasn't one thing that we needed that we couldn't find. The living room furniture was very comfortable for lounging and flaking out; the master bedroom had good storage and the queen sized bed was firm (yet soft) and comfortable with good crisp linens. There's a second room with bunk beds which looked clean and comfortabe. The bathrooms were clean with fluffy towels and basic toiletries and hair dryer. Enjoyed the heated floors throughout. Wish we'd brought our bathrobes!
Craig from BC
This place was absolutely fantastic!! It was exceptional clean and David is a great guy to deal with. The place has every little thing that makes staying just perfect! I would highly recommend this place to all.
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Kamloops
Very cozy condo with great ski in ski out access! Excellent rates, well equipped, great location! Don't hesitate, if you are looking for a great place to stay this is it! Owners are fantastic and very easy to work with!
A fantastic home away from home
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Abbotsford
This unit was perfect to return to after a full day of skiing. It was clean and cozy, and we thoroughly enjoyed the private hot tub.
Excellent accommodation at a very reasonable price.
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Barriere
We stayed at Settlers crossing for 5 days. The unit was excellent and met with all our needs. Access to the ski-slopes was good and it was easy to get going in the morning. Interaction with the owner was also very easy and he was very helpful. We left some stuff behind and he helped us to get all our things back effortlessly. We enjoyed our stay there and will make use of the unit again if the opportunity arises.
Comfortable and hastle free
A FlipKey verified reviewer from langley
