Are you craving a classic steak dinner? Perhaps you’re looking for something fresh and farm-to-table. Or maybe you want something specific, such as pizza, fondue, or sushi. Whatever you’re in the mood to eat, you can find the perfect place at Sun Peaks.

Your dining options at this world-class resort range from elegant sit-down dining to easy, on-the-go meals to take with you on the slopes. Spots like Mountain Tiger Restaurant offer Indian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cuisine, while Chez Joe Poutine specializes in our own Canadian delicacy — fries with gravy and cheese curds.

If you’re looking to get something to drink before your meal, spots like Cahilty Creek Kitchen & Taproom specialize in craft beer, cider, and wine, while Morrisey’s Public House is a classic Irish pub with live sporting events.

Take in the Views Mid-Mountain

Another way to maximize your dining experience at Sun Peaks is to enjoy the mid-mountain dining options. This is a great way to stop for lunch while you’re on the slopes and enjoy the amazing views of the surrounding Rockies.

Sunburst Bar + Eatery is located at the top of the Sunburst Express chair. The restaurant features a large outdoor patio, which is perfect for enjoying those bluebird days. It serves grab-and-go breakfast and lunch daily and is home to the weekly Alpine Fondue and Starlight Descent event, which is a unique way to experience the mountain after the sun goes down.

Dine In At Your Unit

The 2020-21 ski season will look a little different, but Sun Peaks is committed to going above and beyond to provide for their visitors. Guests can choose to dine-in and experience exceptional service and atmosphere, or they can choose items from the expanded grab-and-go or take-out options to enjoy in their lodgings. 

More outdoor seating, heated tents, and washroom facilities will also be available throughout the resort. If your accommodation has a kitchen, be sure to check out Ohana Deli Market and Meals to Go or have Sun Peaks Cargo deliver groceries right to your room.
