The perfect gaycation this winter season is at the Sun Peaks Grand Hotel. It is the mainstay of Sun Peaks Resort, the second largest ski area in Canada, and recent host hotel for the 2nd annual Peak Pride Sun Peaks. The resort is located in British Columbia’s Thompson-Okanagan region, which is about 45 minutes from Kamloops, the tournament capital of Canada. Getting to Sun Peaks is also very convenient, as you can take to the road, ride the train, or fly though the skies.
The Sun Peaks Grand Hotel is fully deserving of its name; the entire resort is surrounded by three awesome wind swept peaks, that seem to touch the sun. Make sure to pick a room that will grant you the most favorable view; the peaks make for some epic sunrises and sunsets.
The property has a wide variety of luxury accommodation to suit every gaycationer’s desire, whether you’re on a romantic trip for two, a family outing, or even a solo getaway. There are luxurious suites that come equipped with extra living spaces like a kitchen, lounge, and bar, so your family can feel right at home. There are also romantic rooms for just him and him.
If you like the experience, you can even consider purchasing a condo and truly making it your second home away from home. Regardless of which accommodation you choose, everything is newly renovated and state of the art.

The Sun Peaks Grand believes in this at least, as it has the largest collection of outdoor pools and hot tubs amongst Canadian ski resorts.
- Fitness center
The hotel has a fully equipped gym, so you don’t have to slack off on your workout routine even once.
Enjoy a relaxing massage or get polished up with a manicure and pedicure, while enjoying tranquility and aromatherapy.
- Arcade room
The kids and some adults who may still be kids will have lots to look forward to in the fully decked out arcade.
- Ski rentals
It is a ski resort, so it is expected that one would be able to rent ski equipment. Most people are here to hit the slopes after all.
Sun Peaks Resort
The Sun Peaks Resort is also home to a quaint European styled winter village. There are lots of different boutiques, shops, cafes, and bars to choose from. You can actually ski through the village, so it makes for a lively and happening social scene. It also makes starting the après very simple and maybe too inviting.
