We like to get away for a snowy mountain adventure as a family every Winter.
This year we had the opportunity to visit Sun Peaks Resort just North of Kamloops, BC on the last weekend before Christmas. I adored being somewhere snow-covered, and in this quaint beautiful little village during this most special time of year.
One of the most important considerations, when we are choosing a winter destination is that it is diverse in its activity offerings. Nya, my oldest daughter, and I don’t ski or board, but we still like to have fun and play in the snow. The whole point of getting away as a family is to spend time together, so we need things to do together as well as keeping everyone happy! Sun Peaks offered up plenty of options for the whole family. Check out my post on Snow Seekers for the full story.
SUN PEAKS BY THE NUMBERS

When you are looking for your next snow getaway, consider some adventures you can plan for the whole family to do together in addition to skiing or boarding.
Grab an inflatable tube provided by the resort and ride the magic carpet up for only $15 for up to two hours of fun. Lights and a fire pit help keep the tube park open until 7pm nightly.
Something I have always wanted to try, dog sledding is offered at Sun Peaks. Children need to be age 4 and up for the 12km hour and a half tour.
Sun Peaks Resort boasts plenty of trails for snowshoeing for both novice and expert level. Take a tour or self-guide with their comprehensive trail maps.
Dining and convenient accommodations are also high on my list for a great getaway. Ski in-Ski out is awesome for the skiers and convenient for families to get out and about in the village.
