Sun Peaks resort is the second largest ski area in Canada. To many Canadians British Columbia is the best place to live and Sun Peaks may as well be this special location. It offers winter and summer activities. The permanent population is about 1,000 residents (2020), but it changes when winter arrives and thousands of visitors come to enjoy sports activities. Even with so many visitors coming every year, there are no lineups to take chair lifts. Perhaps during the last two weeks of December and over the New Year it gets busy with wait times up to 5 minutes or less depending on the time of day. With a replacement of Crystal Chair with a new chair lift (keeping the name) there should be no lineups at all – at least this would be our hope.
