Kamloops International Airport takes several local and a few international flights.
Sun Peaks BC is just a short and easy 45 minute drive from the airport.
When booking flights, its worth it to shop around. Most sites allow you to select your seats and to check-in online, before you go to the airport! Wear good clean socks & get a pedicure - you may have to take off your shoes at airport security!
Here is a quick tip list to help you plan your vacation:
Book your lodging and flights on the same day and book early. Availability on our site changes by the minute!
We highly recommend that you rent a car from Kamloops Airport, mostly because of the convenience, savings and selection that comes with buying your groceries & beverages in Kamloops, on your way up to Sun Peaks!
Here are some recommended BC companies that are situated in the airport, close to the baggage pick-up counter.
Again, shop around for the best price. Be sure to check online, as well as on the phone. Sometimes you can get a better price one way or the other (internet and phone prices are sometimes not consistent).
SunStar Shuttle is available from Kamloops to Sun Peaks Resort. The shuttle departs both the airport and Sun Peaks Resort nine times a day. Children 10-years and younger travel free with an accompanied paying adult.

Our BC ski resort experience has revealed that guests who take lessons generally have extraordinary ski vacation experiences, compared with those who do not. Taking lessons is worth it. We recommend that you take lessons at least 2/3 of the time that you are at Sun Peaks, or at any ski resort. Get lift line priority, quickly gain confidence, get to know the mountain really well, and ski/ride with people of your own ability.
Book early to avoid disappointment!

We highly recommend ski travel insurance, because life happens, and it can happen to you at any time! Make sure that you are covered for lost luggage, as well as flights, lodging and medical. Here are some recommendations:
Whatever you do, don't leave home without it!
We recommend buying tickets at the window, since the pre-booking discount is so measly, and there is a pretty good chance that you are overestimating the number of days that you will ski/ride. Buying too many tickets wipes out your savings and more! Take it a few days at a time and only buy 2-3 day passes at the ticket window. That way, you can take an unexpected day off due to weather or fatigue, without being penalized on a multi-day pass!
If you are coming to Sun Peaks BC for more than 8 days, then you should buy a season's pass, but do so before the middle of September for best pricing.
Take the Free Sun Guide Tour - You will get to know Sun Peaks mountain really fast and learn all the local secrets! Tours depart daily at 9:15 am and 1:00 pm. Or Ski with Olympic Champion Nancy Greene for a world class experience for all abilities and ages. Meet up with Nancy at the top of the Sunburst Chair.
Take Sun Peaks Skiing/Riding Lessons - Quickly improve your ability and confidence to ski/ride more diverse terrain, get more skiing/riding time with lift line priority and ski/ride with people of your own ability. It is fun and there is nothing like the joy of personal sport improvement!
Keep your Feet Warm - Make sure that your liners are always dry. Rip them out of the shell and dry them by the fire in the evenings if you have to. Ensure that your socks are dry at all times, and get proper thermal socks.
Keep your Hands Warm - Get gortex gloves with warm liners. Pre-treat your gloves with Nik-Wax for extra waterproofing.
We highly recommend that you pick up the bulk of your groceries & beverages in Kamloops on your way to Sun Peaks. There are smaller grocery stores in Sun Peaks, however, selection is limited and you are paying a premium!
Here are some conveniently located Kamloops BC grocery stores, just a few minutes from your driving route between Kamloops Airport and Sun Peaks BC.
Safeway - Open 7am until midnight, 7 days/week.
Costco - Open Until 8:30 pm Weekdays | 6pm on Saturdays | 5 pm Sundays
Costco in Kamloops is a great place for meat, cheese, prepared foods and just about anything you are going to need!
Buy your liquor in Kamloops before you head up to Sun Peaks - you will get more selection and at better prices. If you are shopping at Safeway on Fortune Dr., the closest liquor store is the North Kamloops Liquor store across the street.
If you find that you need to buy groceries in Sun Peaks Resort, the Bluebird Market will have the basics for you. Check out the Bluebird Market and the selection of groceries they offer at the 1:15 point of this video:
