The snow is melting and the seasons are changing at Sun Peaks. Skis and snowboards are switched out for bikes and golf clubs. Nordic tracks become cross-country hiking trails. Gladed alpine runs become part of a world-class mountain bike park. Though the seasonal activities change while the thermometer rises, the behind-the-scenes energy doesn’t stop or sit back waiting for the snow to fly for another winter. In fact, the opposite is true.
The investment in the resort that we’ve seen all winter is continuing this summer in the Sun Peaks Bike Park. The park is receiving thousands of dollars of improvements to make it a more accessible destination for bikers of all skill levels.
“We are one of the leaders in lift-access mountain bike parks in North America…but we’re very well known for our hand-built, rugged single-track and fairly aggressive trails,” Aiden Kelly, chief marketing officer with Sun Peaks, told a local media outlet recently. “It’s intimidating for a lot of people, so we wanted to round out the product a little bit more.”
This continued investment into Sun Peaks as a year-round destination is proving to be a significant draw for buyers. More dynamic activities available in the summer lead to increased traffic. If you’re choosing to live here all year, more traffic means an increased community feeling, even during shoulder seasons. If you are purchasing an investment property with rental potential, there are increased opportunities to keep your unit filled and rent cheques in the mail.
In addition to the Sun Peaks Bike Park, summer season at the resort brings with it the opening of the 18-hole golf course, lift-accessed alpine hiking, along with live music, festivals and events all summer.
Winter may be over, but a new collection of seasonal adventures await. See you in the bike park!
