Sun Peaks, BC - Sun Peaks opens its cross country ski trails for the public today, Friday, November 8th. This date is two weeks ahead of schedule and is the earliest opening on record.
Ten kilometres of trails are groomed and track set for classic and skating on Vista, McGillivray Lake, and Otter Trail. Access is via Parking Lot #5. More trails will open as crews continue their early season preparation.
Phil Youwe, Nordic coordinator for Sun Peaks Resort, says the recent snowfalls have allowed the resort to open early.“Our groomers have been busy track packing the trails to solidify our snow base. This means very good early season conditions on our first day.”
Early season trail fees are $10 and will adjust as more terrain opens. Tickets can be purchased at Guest Services in the Village Day Lodge and Elevation Sports in the village centre. The Nordic Centre and McGillivray Lake Cabin will open on November 16.
Sun Peaks will open its alpine chairlifts on November 23, 2013.
