Families Living In The Mountains

More and more families are starting to realize the outdoors doesn’t have to just be the setting for a vacation destination or weekend getaway. Instead, they are embracing a lifestyle that comes with being a full-time community member at Sun Peaks.

“Why walk when you can ski?” is the motto of the Sun Peaks school and a daily reminder of a unique opportunity that is available for families to live, learn and play at a world class destination resort.

While we know skiing and snowboarding every day is an obvious perk for people who are living year-round at Sun Peaks, it’s nice to diversify your outdoor adventures! So we’ve rounded up some of the best winter activities for families who are looking to settle into a year-round mountain lifestyle.

  • Sun Peaks School. With both elementary and secondary classes, this non-traditional school is focused on educational excellence and healthy outdoor lifestyles. In between classes, students hit the slopes to get some fresh air, exercise and an opportunity to fine-tune their ski/snowboard skills.

  • Skating Rink. Skiing and snowboarding aren’t the only winter activities available to keep your kids entertained in the winter. Part of the Sports Centre, this NHL-sized rink hosts public skating and drop-in hockey nights.

  • Tube Park. The ultimate backyard sledding location! Not only is it lift accessed, but with smooth curving lanes, it’s a ride like none other.

  • Kids Activity Nights. Après ski isn’t just for adults anymore. While you’re enjoying a cold pint at one of the village pubs, your children can enjoy some post-skiing fun at the Sundance Kids Centre with everything from crafts, to movies, cookie decorating and more.

Now that you’re convinced it’s time to move your family to the mountains, check out some of our tips on choosing the right property or visit our latestlistings to pick out your new home!
