Day 2: S'MORES & MOONLIGHT SNOW TREKS

Travel four hours inland to one of Canada’s leading snow resorts, passing by spectacular views of the British Colombian snowscape along the way.

Settle into your hotel on the slopes, with a hot tub, sauna and steakhouse restaurant

 

Enjoy a leisurely lie-in this morning, ahead of the first full day of your alpine escape. Today we’re heading to the snowy beauty of Sun Peaks, Canada’s second largest ski resort, with all the horizon-stretching views to prove it. Along the way we’ll cruise through the amazing scenery of coastal British Columbia and into the Thompson-Nicola region, passing by the city of Kamloops and up into the mountainous playground of Sun Peaks. As the sun fades behind the hills, it’s time to gear up for a moonlight snowshoe trek through the stunning forest trails. With the star-lit skies above and your guide leading you through one kilometre of snow-draped beauty, this is a magical way to immerse yourself in the winter wilderness. To celebrate, we’ll gather around a roaring campfire and warm up from the sub-zero temperatures. Glug back hot apple cider and tuck into the hot gooey goodness of a round of s’mores.

Day 3: HIT THE SLOPES IN SUN PEAKS

Hit the shimmering pistes for a day’s skiing or snowboarding across the vast blue-white horizons. Hire equipment from the resort if you need it, or book in for lessons on the gentler slopes if you’re a newbie. Gather for lunch, après-ski drinks and a hearty evening dinner

 

Rise and shine in Sun Peaks and grab your lift pass up into the mountains. Today you are free to roam the mountain at your leisure, making the most of the amazing slopes for a day’s skiing or snowboarding in this epic landscape. Feel the adrenaline rush of whizzing down the pistes, passing by a white blur of snow-covered forest and hoping for a bluebird day of dazzling views. If you don’t want to carry your gear all the way to Canada that’s no problem; you can easily hire ski or snowboard equipment from the resort. Fear not if you’re a beginner, there are optional lessons available on the gentler slopes, for those of you ready to embrace your inner skier or snowboarder. After a morning of slicing across the snow, we’ll meet at midday for lunch before getting back out on the mountain. Then, to get in the true spirit of ski resort life, we’ll meet again for some lively après-ski drinks. With your legs burning and cheeks tingling in the cold mountain air, get the mulled wine or coffee grog in and raise a glass to your day on the slopes. A well-deserved dinner is definitely on the cards; you’ll have a hearty appetite today, that’s for sure.
