State-of-the-art lift systems are not what to expect at Sun Peaks. As with most Canadian ski resorts, Sun Peaks' lifts are not comparable to the lifts in the European Alps due to their lack of modernity; for instance, there are neither heated seats nor lifts with bubbles (weather protection covers).
However, snow grooming and signposting are fair enough. Although not all of the 130 runs are groomed on a daily basis, those which are groomed are signposted and displayed on screens. What's more is that there are signs saying “easiest way“, guaranteeing the easiest way down the mountain. Both beginners and seasoned, yet exhausted skiers will be very happy about this feature, which makes for great orientation and feeling of security – especially for families with kids.
In addition, Sun Peaks features tons of free parking spots, a ski school and ski service, which are located at the base station adjacent to hotels and lodges. Plus, the streets in the village serve as an extension of the ski runs, making Sun Peaks ski-in/ski-out-ish.
