Any tips or advice for Sun Peaks?
 
I'm heading out for a trip to Sun Peaks from Vancouver between 22-24. Does anyone have any suggestions on which runs I must try or what stuff I must do while I'm there? :yahoo:

I'm riding with a few friends, we're all pretty decent for resort riding (probably CASI level 2 - 3 riding skill). If the conditions permit I'd like to try some powder lines, tree runs, and find a few cliff drops.

Not sure what exactly is good there. There's lots of good long groomers but I didn't get into the more challenging stuff since I was there right at the end of the season and that was the only stuff worth doing then mostly. There's some big open almost alpine like stuff with some steeps from what I remember far to the left of the main village. Not sure where the stuff is you're after. It's a pretty underrated mountain from what I know, but I'm not sure what exactly there is outside of the garden variety terrain there.

Wish I could help you more! Usually only been there during the summer since my family has a place on a lake about an hour's quad ride from there through the forestry roads. Saw Matthew Good there last year on labour day!

As I understand it, there are 3 peaks and there are runs and lifts arranged so that you can go down runs and up lifts so that you circle the resort, hitting each peak, without having to unstrap and walk. Start with that to get an overall feel for the place.
