Sun Peaks Resort has announced changes for the upcoming ski season.

The ski hill is continuing to expand.

Sun Peaks is Canada’s second largest ski area at 4,270 acres. The hill features 133 runs and is constantly expanding.

Last season, over 500 acres of backcountry terrain was incorporated into the resort’s ski boundary, adding more alpine powder filled glade skiing to the terrain. On Mt. Morrisey, two advanced trails, Tumble Dry and Lint Trap, were completed and opened to the public, and the expansion continues.

New trail work is being completed on West Morrisey in this challenging area coined the “Laundromat” section in anticipation of the future West Morrisey chairlift.

Sun Peaks will also offer new private tours in challenging terrain. The Gil’s backcountry area was incorporated to the official ski boundary last winter, but locals have been exploring their favourite nooks and crannies in the area for decades and will share their coveted lines in the tours.

Sun Peaks’ top instructors will guide lucky guests to the best snow and aspects for the particular day’s conditions while sharing local knowledge, allowing guests to discover advanced terrain in safety and comfort.

Sun Peaks will also add to the instruction programs to enhance skills of both beginners and current skiers.

A new learning area for tots aged three to seven will be located next to the base of the Sunburst chairlift. The expanded learning environment will include a carpet lift, making it easy and efficient to master the basics of skiing.

Also, Sun Peaks will offer new courses specifically for teenagers between the ages of 13 and 18. Teens will grow by learning new skills in every area from powder skiing to boxes and jumps in the terrain park. The new courses will take advantage of the diverse terrain the mountain has to offer.

The Ski Sisters program will be expanded to be offered twice a day, six days per week. Local skier Laurie White will teach women with her unique style of detailed instruction combined with confidence building techniques. The pressure-free environment has been so popular over its five years of existence that it will more than double in availability this season.
