Sun Peaks cashes in on Family Day weekend
Family Day weekend was kind to Sun Peaks Resort.
"We experienced the third busiest day of the winter and the busiest February day on record," said Darcy Alexander, general manager and vice-president of Sun Peaks Resort Corporation.
There were 45 per cent more visitors this year between Friday, Feb. 8, and Monday, Feb. 11, than the same four-day span in 2012, according to a Sun Peaks press release.
"The government got it right," Alexander said.
"If the new B.C. Family weekend was placed on the U.S. President's Day weekend, far fewer B.C. residents would have been able to enjoy the their own province."
