Cost projections for holding the 2030 Games in B.C. are expected to be released in July and a feasibility study will be presented to the councils of Vancouver, Whistler and the First Nations for their approvals. Sun Peaks council is awaiting a feasibility study to determine whether it makes sense to be part of the official plans.

Sun Peaks' opening day has arrived, with all three mountains open, including eight lifts and 20 runs as of Saturday.

"All three mountains for opening day is a fantastic sign for the season ahead," said Aidan Kelly, Sun Peaks chief marketing officer.

The Sunburst Express, Elevation, Sundance Express, Morrisey Express, Morrisey Platter, Orient, Village Platter and Learning Carpet lifts are all running, as well as the nordic ski network.

As of 2 p.m. on Saturday, mountain temperatures ranged from 1 C to -6 C, with a 49 cm snow base at mid mountain and a 47 cm snow base in the alpine.

The five-day forecast for Sun Peaks shows sunny conditions on Saturday with cloudy and sunny breaks on Sunday. It will be mostly cloudy on Monday with a chance of flurries and a low of -3 C. More snow is expected on Tuesday and Wednesday with lows just below zero.
