High Park Ski Club

Snowshoe Day Trips

HPSC has an enthusiastic group of snowshoers who welcome your company on the trails this winter. We love getting into the woods to enjoy the quiet beauty of winter and benefiting from a great cardio workout, and we think you will too.

We offer a number of guided snowshoe tours at x-country destinations like Highlands Nordic, Arrowhead Provincial Park and Horseshoe Valley. Our snowshoe outings are listed as part of the X-Country Day Trip Schedule. Join us for these great activities!

This includes 110 acres of trails on West Morrisey and 412 acres of runs on the old back-country area on top of Mt. Tod.  Sun Peaks was created as a mountain playground resort. Three mountains, lots of powder, and excellent grooming, come together to create a wonderful ski week. The interior of British Columbia is known throughout the world for its light and dry powder. Be here on a powder day to discover what the ski/ride term ‘blower’ truly means. Enjoy the variety of terrain that our ski resort has to offer: two alpine bowls, cruising blue runs throughout the entire ski area, steep and deep off the Top of the World, and gladed stashes loaded up with powder. mountains gives you access to chairlifts, hotels, eateries, shopping, sports school, the spa, and a variety of activities. Green, blue, and black runs can be accessed from the top of every chairlift allowing everyone to choose their favourite run, and meet back at the bottom of the chairlift. Most trails lead right into the village, so it is easy to meet your friends and family after a run. 

    Sun Peaks Lodge, a family owned 3 star property, is located right in the heart of Sun Peaks, just steps from the chairlift. The luxurious rooms feature a flat screen TV, comfortable king or 2 queen beds with duvets, mini fridge, private safe, coffee maker, iron/ironing board and hairdryer.
