It is about time Sun Peaks, British Columbia, earned a spot on the map.

This mountain town north of Kamloops was finally declared a municipality in 2010 — the country's first resort town to receive such a designation.

Discover British Columbia's newest burg with this week's escape to the Delta Sun Peaks Residence, where you will get a two-night stay for two in a spacious one-bedroom king suite condo ($443).

You will also be treated to complimentary parking and champagne upon arrival.

Despite the town's infancy, your suite is outfitted with a host of revered amenities: a living room with pull-out couch, a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, two LCD TVs, en suite washer and dryer, wireless Internet access and a soaker bathtub with separate glass-enclosed shower.

And Sun Peaks is no spring chicken when it comes to outdoor action. Long a little-known ski getaway, Sun Peaks Resort comprises three different mountains and more than 3,600 acres of skiable terrain, making it the third largest ski resort in Canada.

After you have torn up its 120-plus runs, warm up in the Delta's heated outdoor pool with indoor entrance, three outdoor hot tubs and a sauna.

Work out any kinks with a massage at the on-site spa, or pump some iron in the workout facilities in the main health club.

Hunting down dinner? Not quite. Mantles Restaurant, the on-site eatery, offers farm-to-fork cuisine in a casual yet sophisticated setting that would not be out of place in New York City. Start with confit of lamb, move on to locally caught sockeye salmon and finish with pot de crème.

With 2,000 hours of sunshine each year, plus buckets of snow blanketing the mountains of Sun Peaks, it is a wonder only 400 people claim year-round residence here. Book your stay before the rest of the world books theirs.
