Sun Peaks Resort in British Columbia, Canada, has announced that a grand opening ceremony will be held later this month to mark the opening of its new Orient chairlift.
The chairlift, a fixed-grip quad manufactured by Doppelmayr, opened on 24 December after construction work began in the summer of 2018. It is located in the east village section of Sun Peaks and is intended to improve access to the heart of the village and existing terrain.
The chairlift will run from 8:30am daily until the end of the winter season.
