Sun Peaks – 6th Jan

Throwback Thursday is a perfect time to continue my RV adventure with you. It also gives me chance to relive it, I would do anything to be back touring Canada in a house on wheels.

Between Calgary and Sun Peaks was a lot of driving. Originally the plan was to go snowmobiling in Revelstoke. We got to Revelstoke, hit up the Tourist Information centre and found a reputable snowmobiling company. After a short drive we had arrived at the recommended snowmobiling place and we were left disappointed. They didn’t have availability for us so we headed to Denny’s for food.

We soon realised we might as well keep driving, so we did; all the way to Kamloops in fact. After a few games of Uno, we settled down for the night at Kamloops RV Park.

So the 6th January came and James had booked a Greyhound to head back to Vancouver. He was suffering with his shoulder (which is a lot better now) and we had a couple of days in Whistler coming up. He couldn’t snowboard so he decided to go back to Vancouver.

In the morning we dropped James at the Greyhound depot and Dad and I drove to Sun Peaks, a ski resort close to Kamloops. After a failed attempt at snowmobiling in Revelstoke, we booked a snowmobiling tour at Sun Peaks.

Sun Peaks is a beautiful, picturesque village. It reminded me of a European resort I’ve visited called Les Arcs. I loved it and it is now on my list of possible ski seasons to do next winter.

Wish we could have skied here

The snowmobiling was the highlight of my trip, it was breathtaking. We followed a leader along a snowmobiling trail, zig zagging in and out of snow covered trees. It was a lot of fun and even more fun when we got a chance to have a play around on a big opening at the top of the mountain. It was a snowmobile playground. The snow was so deep up there too. I still can’t get over the trees, never seen them like this before.

Beautiful sunset with my Daddy (iPhone picture)

After a two hour ride and stopping at a frozen lake during sunset we were back on the road, heading to Whistler. We made it to Pemberton, my Dad did all the driving on a windy, pitch black road. It was tiring being a passenger, so I can only imagine how draining it must have been for him. We stopped at McDonald’s (we ate a lot of bad food) and decided to sleep in the car park. Classy and convenient for a McMuffin in the morning.
