Before Tod Mountain Ski Resort Ltd.’s incorporated on May 29th, 1959, the alpine region, known as Skwelkwek'welt, was a hunting and gathering ground for the Secwepemc Nation. Later settled as the village of Whitecroft and Heffley Louis Creek Valley, the land was primarily used for ranching, farming and forestry. Today, the community of Whitecroft and municipality of Sun Peaks are a cohesive community and international ski destination, which continues to grow in population and development. Sun Peaks' residences and visitors, recognize the unique culture of the community - a product of a collective love of winter and outdoor sport, appreciation for the natural alpine environment and commitment to the year round mountain lifestyle.
