    A family-friendly destination, Sun Peaks allows kids to become skiers and snow-seekers for life. Its pedestrian-friendly village is a nice balance of European meets Canadiana.  This is all within an hour?s flight from Calgary, or a 3.5-hour drive from Vancouver. Sun Peaks is an easy getaway that puts you smack in the middle of some fluffy skiable terrain. It is also famed for its annual wine festival, which pairs two of our favourite things - fine British Columbia wines and winter fun.
