Agents on famil go crazy for Sun Peaks

Hannah Edensor

A bunch of agents on famil in Sun Peaks enjoyed some A+ skiing and boarding today in this beautiful snowy town.

Agents on the Sno’N’Ski famil – everywhere from Flight Centre (and there’s a lot of them) to Travel Utopia and Helloworld – arrived from SilverStar in Sun Peaks last night, where they were met with a tasty welcome reception, some tip top rental assistance and the most important part, some snowshoeing.

Now, for anyone who’s ever tried snowshoeing, you’ll know it’s tricky to get the hang of. And naturally, a few agents had their falls.

But what they lacked in balance they gained in views, with 30+ of them trekking through knee-deep snowy darkness to a crackling campfire, where they roasted marshmallows to make s’mores, and sipped on hot apple cider.

Today, they battled the rainy elements to hit the slopes and see what was on offer, and it paid off, because in the afternoon, the sun peaked out (bad pun, we know) and agents enjoyed a cruisy afternoon of skiing and boarding.

Others headed back to their hotels of Nancy Greene Cahilty, Hearthstone, Sun Peaks Grand and Coast Sundance, to relax in their hot tubs and soak away the bruises fresh from the mountain.

Check out some of the snaps below, follow us on Instagram, and stay tuned for some snaps from this evening’s progressive dinner throughout the snow-covered, quaint Sun Peaks village.
