Sun Peaks Resort releases day ticket booking system and on-mountain protocol

·2 min read

Sun Peaks Resort LLP (SPR) has released more information on how the resort will safely operate this season, and a system that allows the public to book day tickets in advance.

The resort is encouraging guests to purchase day tickets as soon as possible, and said they expect holidays and weekends to sell out.

SPR will require a face covering in lift lines, on chairlifts, and while not seated at outdoor dining facilities.

Skiers and boarders are also being asked to wear face coverings while indoors at SPR facilities.

Tickets will be available for pickup at four contactless ticket kiosks that will be set up at the Village Day Lodge.

The tickets will also be available for pickup at ticket windows at the Village Day Lodge, Sun Peaks Nordic Centre at Mt. Morrisey and the base of the Burfield and Morrisey chairlifts.

The resort has also released information regarding refunds.

On its website, SPR stated if a “documented and verifiable government travel restriction and/or quarantine requirement prevents a guest from being able to travel to Sun Peaks, guests with day tickets will receive a full refund.”

Individuals cases where guests are unable to ride due to COVID-19 related illness will be evaluated on an individual basis.

“If the ski area is open, but an individual cannot travel due to COVID-19 related illness, we will evaluate these circumstances on a case by case basis,” read SPR’s website.

The resort is also prohibiting the indoor storage of belongings this season. It is asking the public to leave items safely secured in their vehicles.

Some products will also be unavailable this winter such as Tube Time and the Bungee Trampoline. Childminding will not be offered and the Village Carpet will now operate from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. only.
