Sun Peaks was originally known as Tod Mountain. However, since 1993 the area has been developed into one of the most popular family ski destinations in North America. Children 12 years and under ski free in Sun Peaks! Former Olympic Giant Slalom champion Nancy Green and her husband who were hugely involved with the development of Whistler have made Sun Peaks their home and actually live in the Cahilty Lodge. As Sun Peaks is located in the centre of B.C. the resort benefits from the fine, dry snow that hits the area providing fantastic powder conditions. There are three mountains – Tod mountain, Sundance Mountain and Mt Morrisey that surround the village of Sun Peaks so access to the skiing is very easy. Sun Peaks is a great resort to twin centre with the likes of Big White, Silver Star or Banff.
