Location & Map
Our condo in Stones Throw is ideally placed for early runs on the Morrisey Express - you simply put your skis on at the corner of the building and ski down to the lift to enjoy the best part of the day. From there you can access 122 runs from 11 lifts. If you are a keen cross country skier, the start of over 30 kms of crosscountry skiing starts almost on your door step from there.
Getting home to a soak in the hot tub is easy too - after skiing on the sunny side of Sun Peaks in the afternoon, you can ride the last lift on Sundance Express to ski down Rambler and join the East Village Ski Way. From there, take any one of Fair Dinkum, Czesc, or Ausfahrt to arrive back to the corner of Stones Throw at the end of your day.
A free shuttle bus runs around the resort as well, and leaves from directly outside the roadside building of Stones Throw, but you can walk down in the evening under the period lights of the pedestrian Village Way in 10 - 15 minutes. The skating rink, pool and recreation centre are even closer.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are there guided tours round the ski runs at Sun Peaks
|Is there a tour leader I can join up with?||Yes, the Sun Guides meet twice daily at the bottom of the Sunburst (Bubble) chair, and guide you around the mountain within an ability level you self select. They are locals who volunteer their time, know the mountain really well, and do it all for nothing!|
|Is Nancy Greene ever available?||Yes - Nancy will meet up on Saturdays and Sundays at about 1pm at the top of the Sunburst Express. She will scoop you all up and take you with her, no matter what your ability level! (For those of you who are too young, or not North American, Nancy Greene lives at Sun Peaks and won the Canadian ski championship nine times and the United States championship three times. In 1967, Nancy Greene won the inaugural World Cup,which she subsequently won again. She has won both Gold and Silver at the Winter Olympics, amongst a host of other premier events.|
Where should I purchase my lift pass?
|Can I buy my lift ticket close to the condo?||yes, once you have your skis on at the corner of the building, you can ski down to the Morrisey Express, and avoid all the village queues by purchasing your pass right there at the lift|
|Can I save money on my lift tickets?||Yes - you can purchase multi-day lift ticket options, and of course if you are staying long enough then an early bird season pass may be a great option for anything more than 10 days skiing.|
We are Jenny Hare and Brian Wills .... a Kiwi (New Zealand) couple who leave the stunning Mt Maunganui summer, sand and surf to travel to Sun Peaks for some winter fun in the sun. We first visited Sun Peaks in 2005, and were completely captivated by the friendliness of the locals, the warm welcome we experienced and of course the skiing and terrain. The snow is so much drier and the weather so much more reliable than on the coast at Whistler Blackcomb.
We bought our condo off the plans on that first visit and have travelled back to renew friendships and revisit our favourite runs and explore new ones almost every year since then. Our five adult children think it is a wonderful resort too, and one of our sons and his 3 friends featured the month of fun they had at Sun Peaks, and in our condo, extensively on their website, Facebook page and blog site in January 2011. Our condo in Sun Peaks has provided us and many of our Kiwi friends with wonderful vacations with memories to treasure.
Because we travel so far to enjoy the best of the Canadian ski areas, we equipped our condo so that it was easy, well equipped and homely when we arrived. Everything we would need had to be on hand, as we don't arrive in a car, but in a shuttle after a long international flight.
We want you to enjoy it as much as we do!
Great Christmas at Sun Peaks
Mike from Parksville, Canada
Date: Dec-30-2014 for a stay in Dec 2014
Hopefully, the above came out as 5 stars - I don't know what the 'x' means. Because it truly was a five star stay at Stones Throw. Our family of six had a great time in this unit that was VERY comfortable for all of us. The amenities and kitchen were perfect for a full Christmas dinner and everything else that we did. The proximity to lifts and Nordic tracks made it easy for skiing and snowshoeing and the fully serviced hot tub at the end of the day was just what everyone needed. As former owners and renters at Sun Peaks, we would highly recommend this property and would return again.View Full Review
A perfect break
Tim from North Vancouver, Canada
Date: Dec-23-2014 for a stay in Dec 2014
Our third visit to Sun Peaks and we always have such a good time here. Sun Peaks itself is such a great resort - very little queuing for lifts and such a variety of terrain to suit all abilities, we love it. We've always had good experiences with accommodation here but for us, Stones Throw ticked all the boxes and was exceptional. Ease of unloading from the parking, location of the unit for ski-in and out, facilities and cleanliness of the unit, the hot tub (second floor location means it is much more conducive to being used), the space in the unit and the thought that had gone into the items left for us to use, in every room. I can't recommend this place enough and the only reason I would say that you shouldn't stay here is so that it is not all booked up the next time we want to stay in it!! We will definitely be back.

Tim B from Vancouver, Canada
Just enjoyed a brief 4 day pre-Christmas stay at Stones Throw. Sun Peaks itself is a fabulous destination with plenty of variety of trails to suit all abilities. The ski area is so extensive that there are very few queues which means more time on the slopes. Even the fact that the lifts shut at 3.30pm is not a problem as you will be "done" by then if you get a reasonable start to the day. The location of Stones Throw opens up Mount Morrissey as a great place to start the day which is the quietest area - sometimes you feel like you have the mountain to yourself. As for the condo, I couldn't fault anything. It's clean, well-maintained, spacious (we were only 4 but it could easily accommodate more, 5-6 would still be comfortable), superbly equipped, well located (20m walk from the front door and you strap the skis on and go). The hot tub is great and private being on a first floor deck unlike some other units in Stones Throw. Like me, you may wonder at first why a New Zealand couple would own a condo in BC - once you visit the condo and Sun Peaks, you'll understand! I would absolutely recommend this as a place to stay and intend to return with my kids, hopefully next year.
Fantastic Ski in Ski out Kiwiana Condo
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Mt Maunganui
The condo was perfect for our family, well appointed and well equiped. The hot tub at the end of a fantastic days skiing was a great way to relax. The ski in /ski out location was perfect, for the best early morning access to the Morrissy chair and some fantastic fresh powder. Sunpeaks is a great family resort. Our young family ( 8 and 10 year olds) rate this holiday as the best holiday ever.

This is a beautiful well-appointed suite with easy access to skiing. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the atmosphere warm. Across the street, a short ski away is the Morrissey Express chair, and there is ski-in access from the Sun Dance chair from the village. My wife and I, 6-year old daughter and 8-year old son shared the suite with our friends and their 2-year old and 4-year old daughters. The three older children slept upstairs in the bunk beds, and the two adult couples enjoyed the downstairs bedrooms, our friends with their baby downstairs. The loft space was very safe with a shuttered overlook onto the living/dining area below, graciously far too high for a little one to accidentally get over. We felt we had plenty of space and as a result did not stir despite the different wake-up times of the children. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed (and then some) and there were games and puzzles to keep us stimulated. The couches were very comfortable and it is clear that the owners have lovingly furnished and appointed the place with touches of their native New Zealand. The hot tub on the porch was enjoyed by all and maintained daily (!) by the contracted hot-tub maintenance folks. The skiing was great for all our little ones, and Sun Peaks is a great family resort with gentle wide-open trails as well as steep bowls and tree skiing for the restless. We even got 1 foot of fresh powder during our too brief 4 day stay! If only that could happen every time! We will definitely bookmark this place.
Perfect location, perfect holiday
Simon M from New Zealand
Wonderful to arrive to a clean, comfortable condo with plenty of room for everyone to spread out, relax after a day on the slopes. Great true ski in/ski out location, great kitchen and bedding. I will be back and will recommend to others.
We will definitely be coming back!

I really love this place. It is beautifully furnished, really comfortable and has all the little touches that make it feel just like home. It's also very spacious - even with all the beds full, the lounge and bedrooms weren't cramped and there was plenty of space for our ski gear. A long soak in the hot tub on the balcony was the perfect way to end the day's skiing, and the condo's location is great too - a short walk to all the restaurants and bars, a short ski in or out from the field, but also very quiet and peaceful. In summary...? Like I said, we will definitely be coming back!
we had an amazing time .

A FlipKey verified reviewer from Bowen island
at the kiwi condo on route from a road ski trip betweenCalgary and Vancouver and had a fantastic time. The resort had all you néed close by but you could also hunker down and self cater (as we did) with all the modern home appliances. Hot tub was superb and proximity to snow. It was very special as we got fresh powder every day and due to time of year we felt like it was our private ski mtn as noone was there! Hope to book in again soon as was excellent value for $. Also had a nicer friendlier feel compared to the big resorts.
divine skiing; great location
GH from Switzerland
First time skiing in Canada. Loved the condo, skiing in and out makes such a difference to the day. And the walk back from the village to the condo after dinner through the trees on the lamp-lit snow path was a magical experience, and just right for the digestion. The restaurants and cafes in the village were also very good; disappointing not to have more interesting food options on the mountain, but who cares if the skiing is great. And the relaxation of a hot tub after a challenging day kept us going. And the reason for the label 'divine skiing'? We took lessons from local instructor anne Terwiel, and skied like angels on powder, thereafter...my best performance ever. Anne is the best instructor of those I've sampled in many places around the world. The condo had all the requirements for a very comfortable stay, and was easy to get to and from the airport via the transfer company which has to be arranged in advance. Thoroughly relaxing, hassle free skiing.
