Sun Peaks Winter Guide

Powder stashes, perfect corduroy, and snow-filled days are right around the corner. If you love flurries as much as we do, then you’re already plotting out how to make the most of every day this winter. Our month-by-month winter guide brings you from festive events in December all the way through to spring laps in April.


Sun Peaks is truly a winter wonderland in the month of December. With an average of 125cm of fresh snowfall, the trees are coated in a layer of snow and the slopes are in prime shredding condition. The village illuminates at night with colourful festive lights, making for a beautiful snowy scene. Visitors love taking part in our variety of holiday events in December.

Come January, the snow has built up significantly in Sun Peaks and the cooler temps keep it light and fluffy, just how we like it. With tons of unique on-mountain experiences and events to pick from, there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy the epic snow conditions.

Winter is at its deepest in February, and visitors love to experience a variety of activities during this month. Explore the valley via dog sled tours or snowshoes, or try something new and catch some fish through the ice.

Family fun is the name of the game this month – with March break giving families the chance for some much-needed time together. Sun Peaks is the epicentre for family-friendly activities, so kids never get bored! March is also packed with events the adults will enjoy, including the first ever Sun Peaks Wine & Food Festival to round out the festivities.

  • Bring your four-legged friend to Sun Peaks: we have a variety of pet-friendly accommodations, shops and activities


With April comes warmer temps and spring conditions on the slopes. We love spring in Sun Peaks because the days are longer and the snow is still in great condition. Spend your morning cruising down pristine groomers, your afternoon carving through soft snow, and your evening enjoying après on a patio. Or, take advantage of the sunlight and pack your days full of activities. While you’re here, stock up on gear for next season and take advantage of late season sales. The hill closes for skiing on April 13, but you’ll get to end the season with a bang with our iconic Tod Mountain Days Spring Festival.
