KAMLOOPS - Sun Peaks Resort is thrilled to announce extended lift operation hours this summer.

Turning daily from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., the Sunburst chairlift will be open for mountain biking, hiking and sightseeing from June 24 to Sept. 5.

Extending lift operations by two hours daily creates additional opportunities for guests to experience Sun Peaks Resort from 6,000 feet while enjoying lift accessed activities.

Whether it's biking, hiking or just enjoying a leisurely stroll through a meadow of Sun Peaks' world famous alpine blossoms, the extended hours allows for more fun in the sun for everyone.

“The decision to extend lift hours until 7 p.m. daily is something we are extremely excited about. Sun Peaks is a very popular destination for international guests touring throughout Western Canada and the extended hours provide more opportunity to enjoy a signature Sun Peaks experience during their visit,” says Aidan Kelly, Director of Sales and Marketing at Sun Peaks Resort.

“Additionally, our local market in the Kamloops and surrounding areas will have increased options for late afternoon activities in their favourite backyard playground,” says Kelly.

On weekends all summer long, the Sunburst Lodge at mid-mountain will be open for guests and will include new product offerings such as Okanagan wine and food pairings featured during twilight hours. The cooler afternoon temperatures and stunning scenery will complement an already tremendous experience for those looking to relax with a beverage on the mid-mountain patio.
