This place has 2 sides, it's a nice village, perhaps spring is not the best time to visit, but still it makes a good impression. We had a drink in a nice bar and in the evening a good diner in one of the village restaurants. The bad side is only when you don,t stay in the lodges but arrive in a RV. The RV park in Sun peaks is not the place what gives you a safe and relaxed feeling. The RV park was 90% occupied with 2 old RV's and the rest tents with people with skateboards. In fact we did not have any problems with them but it was not a relaxed feeling.

Sun peaks is a nice family resort. Don't expect to find any extreme terrain but there is enough to do here for a day for an expert skier or a week if you have young kids with you. I hear they have a good lesson program. Their cafeterias are getting somewhat out of date but the ski-through village is quite cute with a nice cachet to it.
