When you’re considering buying property at a resort destination, the first thought is often that of a vacation property. Somewhere you can visit for long weekends, over the Christmas holidays and perhaps another week or two throughout the year. The rest of the time, it slides into a rental pool to cover the mortgage.
However, many people intending to vacation at Sun Peaks have made the resort community their permanent home. As the resort expands, so does the community infrastructure. No longer do residents have to drive to Kamloops for base level services; they are available right in the village core.
K-12 education. Yes, the kids ski to school at Sun Peaks and can also hit the slopes during their lunch break. Part of School District 73 in the Thompson Okanagan, the schools not only cover the important academic curriculum, but also highlight the importance of keeping children physically active. Active children perform better in school and getting outdoors gives them an even better learning boost.
Medical support. When you work, live and play at a ski resort, access to high-quality medical care is vital. Not only is there a Community Health Centre offering support for both registered patients and walk-ins, physiotherapy and massage therapy services are also available for visitors and residents alike.
Coffee, groceries and dining. This is where the true community feel comes to play, with coffee shops ranging from 5Forty Café in the Fireside Lodge, to Bolacco Café, a true locals hot spot (watch for Nancy Greene in the mornings!). Restaurants range from pubs and clubs to fine dining experiences. Or check out one of the newest locations, Ohana Sun Peaks, with a focus on fresh, local produce and low waste, sustainable culinary flavours.
