Every year as the winter season wraps up in Canada we always watch online with envy as the resorts make the most of their spring days. Endless bluebird days, fun springtime events and plenty of snow still on the ground – is this real life?
The good news is that if you’re planning a ski holiday for next season, now’s the time to look into switching up your regular January sojourn for a spring adventure.
At Sun Peaks, the end of winter doesn’t mean the end of powder days. Spring skiing conditions are loved just as much as powder days when it comes to the fun factor, so join them to cruise wide open groomers, snake through soft moguls, and charge corn snow to your heart’s content. Speaking of powder, just because it’s March doesn’t mean the storms have disappeared, so there’s always the chance of a sneaky late season POW day to reward your efforts to the end.
Once the lifts stop turning throw your après gear on and hit up the sun drenched, ski-in, ski-out patios at Sun Peaks’ restaurants and bars. Pull up a chair, loosen those boots, order some Caesars & poutine and toast to another great spring on the slopes.
If you’re worried about keeping the kids entertained don’t be! Sun Peaks has an abundance of activities and events for the whole family both on and off the slopes, leaving you wishing only for more time at Canada’s second largest ski area. Experience a thrilling dog sled ride, learn to ice fish with a local guide, head for a romantic alpine fondue and starlight descent or laugh your way down the hill on a tube with family and friends.
With the milder temperatures and blue skies, spring is the perfect time to sit outside and work on your tan while heading on a culinary adventure. Hop from sushi to schnitzel, bison burgers to grilled salmon, and homemade fudge to fresh baked goods—your taste buds will be delighted at every turn with plenty of charming cafés and après ski destinations in the family friendly European-style ski-through village.
But don’t just take our word for how good it is. This year Sun Peaks was named in National Geographic’s Best Winter Trips of 2019 article, a testament to the terrain and conditions, and overall village vibe and amenities.
