Despite the dumping snow, Santa managed to find his way to our village on Saturday for his annual alpine visit and for the first of his many appearances at Sun Peaks this year!
As well as getting their photo taken with Santa, visitors were able to sample food at local restaurants, meet some of the Huskies from Mountain Man Adventure Dogsledding tours and shop at the various market stalls that were set up especially for the day! Kids were also treated to a number of activities such as ornament decorating, snowman making and Christmas storytelling. With plenty of snow falling and everyone’s favourite Christmas carols playing the village really came to life and turned into a magical winter wonderland. It was definitely a fabulous way to end what was an awesome day on the slopes!
If you missed Santa's visit, dont worry there's still plenty of opportunities to meet him, have your photo taken or get your Christmas wish list in! This Saturday, December 22nd head to the ice rink to skate with Santa or on Sunday hit the slopes and ski with Santa as he cruises down 5 Mile! Alternatively, share a pancake breakfast with the man himself at Masa's Bar + Grill on Monday the 24th before he sets of on his annual expedition!
Happy holidays everyone and enjoy the festive fun!

Hey everyone, my name is Sarah and I’ll be your blogger for the season. Although originally from Australia I’ve spent the last few years in London where one indoor ski slope (150 metres long!) was the best and possibly only option for skiing or riding. So it’s definitely an understatement to say that I’m a little excited to be spending this winter living and working at a world-class ski resort!
I’m really looking forward to keeping you all informed about what’s been happening at Sun Peaks Resort as well as sharing my own experiences with you over the coming months. If you’re wondering how to spend your time when you’re not on the slopes then be sure to check out our Events Calendar – there’s always something going on for everyone.
Apart from the obvious there are lots of other things to do this opening weekend! On Saturday night the annual Fire Fighters Fundraising Gala will take place at The Delta Hotel and there’s also the premiere of LSL Production’s newest ski and snowboard film at Masa’s Bar + Grill.
Enjoy your first day on the slopes - I look forward to seeing you all out there. And don’t forget to keep praying to Mother Nature!
Here's a picture we took on the mountain this morning!
