For a little more traditional outdoors winter activities not as commonly seen in larger cities, Sun Peaks offers dog sledding, snowmobile tours, sleigh rides and Cat Trax Groomer Rides!
Cat Trax is your chance to join one of our snow groomers in a Pisten Bully Snow Groomer, and witness first hand how they work their magic on the ski runs! Groomer rides are 45 minutes in length. Tours must be booked by 3:00pm. Three snow cat groomers are available per evening. All participants must be at least 14 years of age, and only one person is permitted per cat.
The on going community activities through out the year make great additions to any travelers trip – especially the winter international fondue dinner and torchlight descent!
