SEATTLE – Horizon Air resumes nonstop service between Seattle and Kamloops/Sun Peaks, B.C., on Dec. 15, just in time for travelers to hit the slopes.
"With nonstop service to Kamloops, visitors can take advantage of skiing and snowboarding at nearby Sun Peaks, and those in Kamloops can easily escape to Seattle and warm weather destinations served from our Seattle hub," said Dan Russo, Horizon's director of marketing and communications.
Kamloops is host to Sun Peaks Resort, a world-class destination resort with 121 runs and 12 lifts, including three high-speed quads. There's 3,678 acres of available terrain, making it the second largest ski area in British Columbia and the third largest in Canada.
