The 2011-12 ski season marks a half century for Sun Peaks Resort (formerly Tod Mountain), which once offered some of British Columbia’s most challenging inbounds skiing. The 3,678-acre ski area, 30 miles to the northeast of Kamloops, B.C., will commemorate the golden anniversary throughout the season. A calendar of events is available on Sun Peaks Resort’s website.
For a detailed history of Sun Peaks, see Robert Koopmans two-part article in the Kamloops Daily News:
Lastly, if you have 15 minutes to burn, indulge in the vintage Tod Mountain promotional video above. It was filmed in 1974 and is narrated by what sounds like a six year old.
