As Sun Peaks Resort LLP (SPR) closes for the season as of 4 p.m. March 18 they have announced they will allow limited use of ski runs near the Orient Chairlift.

The area in the East Village will be open for non-motorized uphill traffic, hiking or skiing as of March 19.

A statement posted by SPR said the opportunity is an amazing pilot project.

Uphill access will only be allowed on ‘Ca M’a Fait Plasir’. Skiing and snowboarding will only be permitted on ski runs to the east of that location.

Nordic, snowshoe and fat bike trails will also remain open to the public. As will the Nordic centre from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for equipment rentals.
