As the second largest ski area in Canada, Sun Peaks has something in its subalpine terrain for everyone, from glades and groomers to resort-accessed backcountry zones (usually) full of powder. Plus, you can ski right through the village if there’s enough snow.

SKI: From the top of the Crystal chair, take Gil’s Hike for great tree lines. Or for wide-open spaces, lap either side of Juniper Ridge.

DRINK: Bottom’s Bar and Grill is the best option for drinking cheap beer with the lifties.

EAT: Keep it local and check out the bar fare at Bottom’s. For something a little fancier, try the beer flights and lamb shank at the Voyageur Bistro.
