Sun Peaks Resort

"Take a look at you. Lord have mercy!” Gordie Johnson exclaimed as he took the stage at Sun Peaks Resort on Canada Day weekend. “Canada, I know you can handle it."

Do we really need to push repeat? We count down to midnight, kiss everyone, shout out “Happy New Year,” then we drink too much.

It's the weekend to truly appreciate the colourful mountain flowers that decorate the alpine environment. It's a great weekend and it's free for families to enjoy on the B.C. Day long weekend.

Only 45 minutes from Kamloops, 4.5 hours from Vancouver and a beautiful seven-hour drive from Calgary, you'll find the perfect destination for a weekend of music and festival fun.

Canada’s second largest ski area comes alive in the summertime, trading in the snow-white, powdery slopes, for lush green meadows and blankets of flowers that cover the alpine in a quilt of colour.

It’s easy to feel connected to nature when you’re standing amid lush, green hillsides covered in blooming alpine wildflowers in a rainbow of colours.

It is rare to find a concert venue that also boasts mountains, bike paths, hiking or picnicking among alpine flowers, fine and casual dining, shopping and golf all in one. 

“Breathe in . . . breathe out!” As we crest a small rise, I can hear my Mother’s voice from 30 years ago commanding me to take healthy lungs-full of the fresh mountain air.

The 16th Annual Sun Peaks Winter Okanagan Wine Festival has just passed, and as a first-timer to this festival, I can easily say, I’m impressed.
