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.
