I remember being in Europe and asking for warm milk for my baby. It was scalding hot and the poor screaming child had to wait an hour for it to cool. Not the case at Sun Peaks Resort. Not only is the hot chocolate from Cafe Soleil lukewarm and perfect for kids (they asked), but it was covered in coloured sprinkles and whipped cream. This family resort, designed after a Tyrolean village, is 40 minutes north of Kamloops, and easily accessible from Vancouver, Calgary and Seattle by plane, shuttle and train. Not only is the resort friendly for families, but it has tons of terrain too. 122 runs (including 12 glade areas) will keep every member of your group happy. (At there’s a hot terrain park if you have a shredder in your midst).
