Sun Peaks Resort is known for its ski and snow culture. But when the snow melts it becomes an alpine village surrounded by mountains blanketed in green meadows dotted by dainty flowers. It’s the perfect setting for summer music concerts. Attend the concerts, but along with the lawn chairs, pack the hiking shoes, golf clubs, mountain bike, paddle board and swim gear. This place rocks with or without your skis. Share this page on Twitter.
