The tour of the Okanagan ski areas is over after a couple of very good days at Sun Peaks.
The SkiZer had always wanted to try out the resort near Kamloops, and finally got the chance. With that, the SkiZer got in five days at four resorts — nice work if you can get it.
Sun Peaks is very proud of being “Canada’s 2nd Largest Resort” behind Whistler-Blackcomb. And yes, there’s certainly a lot to like.
Mt. Tod, the summit at Sun Peaks, offers many great glades and tree runs. The sidecountry hiking behind Mt. Tod in an area known as Gil’s Zone is even better, and with a few centimeters new overnight, there were many freshies to be found.
The frigid temperatures finally moderated too, and snow quality remained excellent. And if that wasn’t enough, some blue skies poked through the cloud cover giving the mountain a top-of-the-world feel.
