Crystal Ski adds Sun Peaks to portfolio

Sun Peaks
Sun Peaks in Canada

Crystal Ski has added the Sun Peaks Resort in British Columbia in Canada to its portfolio, going on sale from March 15.

Sun Peaks is located in the interior of the province and receives on average nearly six metres of light, dry, ‘easy-to-ski’ powder snow every winter.

It’s the second largest ski area in Canada, and frequently shares the ranking of the top two resorts in Canada with neighbouring Whistler, most notably by Snowboard Canada Magazine and the North American Condé Nast Traveler Readers Poll.

The resort offers skiing across three mountains with over 4,270 acres of terrain on long cruisers and bumps, steep slopes as well as off-piste in Alpine bowls. Mount Tod summit is at 2152m (7060ft) and the village at 1255m (4116ft) offering convenient ski-in, ski-out accommodation and a diversity of dining options.

The longest run is nearly 8km (5 miles) and the resort has 12 lifts (three high speed quad chairlifts, two quad chairlifts, one triple chairlift and six surface lifts).

Cross-country skiers have the choice of almost 40km of groomed and 17km of backcountry trails.

“This new and exciting partnership with Crystal Ski Holidays is a significant development for Sun Peaks Resort,” said Darcy Alexander, General Manager at Sun Peaks Resort.

“From an awareness and visitation standpoint, this relationship gives us great exposure in a valuable and important international market,”

Crystal’s Purchasing Director Gordon Ritter added: “Featuring Sun Peaks is long overdue, after all we are talking about Canada’s second largest ski area with a great snow record and terrain to suit all abilities.

“Access is easy, a one stop flight from London via Kamloops and a 45 minute transfer. And while you’re there don’t forget to join the mayor Al Raine and his wife Olympian Nancy Greene on a tour of the ski area.”
