Sun Peaks Review

Sun Peaks has a very small town as it's resort, but the skiable area is huge. The ski school was really well organised and structured. If there was a rating for that I'd give them a 5.

Staff accommodation is split between two buildings. A big part of one of the buildings are small studio units for 2 people. It's the cheapest option for staff accom, but it's not recommended. It's small, your "kitchen" is your living room as well as your bedroom (and that's with 2 people). I'd recommend going for the more expensive options instead. For an extra $100 a month you get your own room, as well a much much larger living area and a bigger kitchen. So don't bother with the cheaper option, go spend that extra cash instead and you'll be ok all season. A free shuttle bus runs from staff accom to the base through most of the season.

The uniforms are warm, but a dull grey with red pants made for an outdated look in my opinion. The jackets were very short around the waist while the arms were long. That means you won't be looking steezy as a boarder. Waterproofing was questionable too.

With a CASI2 and Park1 I was getting pretty solid hours throughout the season (4 to 6 a day). Training was often available for those with lower priority (who didn't get as much work) and consisted of custom training sessions depending on the participating riders. They were on about 3-4 afternoons a week and of solid quality.

All the team leaders were always open to talk to and the ski school is very transparent. Good vibe, good people. Very clear hiring process. The pay isn't great just like anywhere else in Canada. With a solid incentive for private request lessons you can do well with a bit of effort, and returning staff with returning clients seemed to do well.

I recommend this place!

Good snow in Canada

Canada, good snow. No snow guns on the hill, just fresh stuff. Had so many powder days and the resort is not crowded at all. Bit cold too. Didn't had any days above 0 degrees celsius for 3 months. Can get down to -30 celsius. Very nice ski school. Good organiszed. Most of the times you know the day before whats going on the next day. Nice people. You live a bit isolated on the hill. Small, expensive shop. Big shopping you need to drive one hour to Kamloops. Wage depends on years worked at the Snow School and education. Wasn't to great for me. Could bearly live and didn't had to much party. Family resort, you will get a lot of kids. Accomotation is ok, had my own small room and shared an appartement with 4. Over all, go there for the snow and not for the money ;)
