While other business may be shutting their doors for the inaugural B.C. Family Day statutory holiday on Monday, Feb. 11, Sun Peaks Resort is swinging its doors wide open with family activities and discounted lift tickets.

On Sunday, Feb. 10, families will gather at the platter lift near the base of the mountain for complimentary family activities from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Starting the celebration is a Sun Peaks tradition — the Penguin Slide Dual race. Participants will meet at the bottom of the Sundance Chair, put on the provided penguin suit and slide down the mountain.

Pre-registration is not required.

Uncle Chris the Clown and Harry Bear will be participating in face-painting, a dance party and glow-stick parade on the platter lift.

Free hot chocolate will be provided.

Guests can also spend family time experiencing other resort activities, such as dog sledding, showshoeing, snowmobiling, Nordic skiing and more.

These activities can be booked through the Sun Peaks Adventure Centre by calling 250-578-5542.

On Monday, Feb. 11, Sun Peaks will be offering full-day alpine lift tickets at a 50 per cent discount to all B.C. residents (proof of residence must be provided).

For questions on the special offer, call Sun Peaks Guest Services at 250-578-5474.
