Sunny days for Sun Peaks opening

With 65 runs across all three mountains open, Sun Peaks welcomed the 2015-16 season this past weekend.

Sun Peaks had a sneak peek opening on Friday and unveiled several runs, however the entire resort was fully up and running on Saturday. Families, avid skiers and boarders gathered for the beginning of a new season.

Lift tickets were 25 per cent off over the weekend and snow lovers took advantage of the discount.

TRU student Cara Karpluk said conditions were perfect. “All the runs that were open had really good snow to ride. Even the groomed runs felt really nice and smooth.”

She started her season on Friday and explained that, because the slopes opened early, they were not busy yet with the weekend crowd.

Sun Peaks’ Toonie Day will be held on Dec. 7. The price of a lift ticket will be a toonie along with a non-perishable food donation. All proceeds and donations will be given to the Kamloops Food Bank, no pre-registration is required.
