Sun Peaks Ski Resort looks to set a new visitor record this weekend with the best snow conditions they’ve seen in 15 years and an influx of visitors for its two largest winter events. It’s perfect timing as the ski resort is full of out-of-town guests from Australia and other countries that are in town for the annual Family Cup event and Sun Peaks Winter Wine Festival that begins this Saturday. Sun Peaks and British Columbia’s interior region may have got off to a slow start for snowfall in November, but since the second week in December, Sun Peaks has received more than 200 cm of fresh snow. With the instant notice of news online, it’s certainly no secret this season as to how amazing the snow conditions are at Sun Peaks Ski Resort and other mountain resorts in British Columbia.
Perfect Time to Take a Ski Holiday to Sun Peaks
Ski Resorts in British Columbia are seeing record amounts of snowfall since early December with Whistler Blackcomb receiving 343 cm of snow in December and Big White also seeing nearly 400 cm of accumulated snow, mostly since early December. As a result, B.C. ski resorts are seeing an increasing in out-of-town skiers, and Sun Peaks is no different. With the start of the Sun Peaks Winter Wine Festival and the continuation of its annual Family Cup event, many are looking to take a ski holiday to Sun Peaks this weekend that could see the ski resort possibly surpass or match its 50-year record of more than 6,000 skiers on a single day.
Across British Columbia, there has been a steady increase in out-of-town guests visiting our province over the past year and it looks like that trend is continuing this winter. Sun Peaks Ski Resort is hoping that trend brings record amounts of skiers and visitors this weekend with the best snow conditions in the past 15 years and its two largest winter events, the Family Cup and Winter Wine Festival.
