This Labour Day long weekend, Sun Peaks Resort celebrates the return of Peaks Pedal Fest, a three-day celebration highlighting the community's diverse and ever-expanding biking culture. Avid freeriders through to casual cyclists will find an event suited to their riding style.

The lift company has made great strides in fostering a thriving bike culture in recent years. With events such as the Canadian National Downhill Championships returning for its third year, Sun Peaks has established itself as a world-class mountain biking destination.

Peaks Pedal Fest aims to showcase this emerging community with a wide variety of activities and events for riders of all ages and abilities. This passionate community is highlighted by the dedicated efforts of local volunteers from the Sun Peaks Recreational Trail Alliance, established in 2014.

Riders and hikers alike are encouraged to join the resort in celebrating another fantastic summer season on the mountain, with a full roster of events and activities all weekend long. As the lift accessible mountain biking and hiking operations come to a close on Monday, Sept. 5, the weekend will culminate with the Lift and a Lager Wrap-up Party. On Monday, hiking and biking lift tickets will include a beer at the Sunburst mid-mountain patio, where a DJ will be spinning music all afternoon alongside a barbecue serving up favourites.

Cross-country trails in the valley will remain open through the fall, along with golf, horseback trail rides and other family-friendly activities.
