My Afternoon at Sun Peaks Resort

Sun Peaks Resort

I am fortunate to live so close to an amazing ski hill—Sun Peaks Resort. It’s been a number of years since I have driven the short 45 minutes, to visit the resort in the summertime. Not sure why I waited so long!

Saturday morning I texted a recent grad of Thompson Rivers University, where I work, and basically dragged her out of bed at noon and said in all caps “ASSIE GET UP…WE’RE GOING TO SUN PEAKS NOW!” Serves her right for telling me she was “in” for my next adventure. 🙂

After setting up a GoPro camera on my car to record the beautiful drive, we set off for the mountain. After endless talking and laughs we made it.  Check out the short video of our afternoon and please be gentle on me, it’s my first attempt at a vlog…video blog…video anything! Yes, you can also tease Assie for wearing fancy shoes and looking like a fashion queen on our “hike”. Well, that’s what we called it.  Enjoy!

      ha ha Thanks Elise! I hadn’t intended to have her in the video but couldn’t resist leaving her in when I saw the footage.

    Definitely a GoPro is worthwhile! I bought the Session and will try it underwater, too!

    Very surprised to hear that this was your first attempt at a vlog because you would’ve never known! Videos are so cool because it makes me feel like I am there more than a photo does. This resort looks unreal – that top photo is to die for.
