Sun Peaks, British Columbia: Mountain Recreation near Charming Resort Town
No matter where you turn in Sun Peaks, you can see the mountains; they tower majestically, seemingly from all angles. The town has ski-in and ski-out access to nearly 3,700 acres of downhill slopes; Olympic champion and Canadian Senator Nancy Greene often leads tours of the trails. After the snow melts in early summer, the mountains come alive with bikers and hikers. You can catch a ride up the mountain with your bike on Sunburst Chairlift, open daily from late June through Labor Day. From the top, there are 36 mountain-biking trails to choose from, plus a dirt-jumping zone.
The chairlift will also drop off hikers at a more moderate elevation, from which they can access 15 hiking trails. From mid-July to mid-August, the vibrant hillside meadows are covered with wildflowers such as tiger lilies and the mauve-colored fireweed. Keep an eye out for resident wildlife, including black bears, coyotes, moose, cougars, and bald eagles.
