Description:

Sunshine Village sits high on the Continental Divide in the heart of Banff...

Sunshine Village sits high on the Continental Divide in the heart of Banff National Park, and is just minutes from the mountain town of Banff. Three sprawling mountains provide breathtaking sitelines, uninterrupted by any signs of civilization beyond the resort's leasehold.

Ski or ride in Alberta and British Columbia in one run. Sunshine Village's seven-month season stretches from early November until late May - the longest non-glacial season in Canada. The Village's altitude of 7,082 feet ensures the snow stays dry. Sunshine can receive up to nine metres (30 feet) of snow in a season, and it stays all year.

The ski hill is different then what i've seen before in a sense that to access the ski hill one must get in a gondola to get to the top of the hill where the chalet is. Quite the thing! The runs are interesting but always quite short; not so many long runs with a consistent difficulty level; for example... More

My wife and I had a season pass in sunshine 16 / 17. We had a great time, we took our grandchildren many times with us, taught them how to ski, it was a just great. We skied most of the ski hills in western Canada. For sure the runs are not the longest from all those mountain ski hills,... More

Visiting my daughter in Calgary for awhile for she just had a baby. Thought would take some time to do some skiing. I have loved this resort since coming as a little girl. It is good for all ages and levels of skiers. The only two things I don't like about this place is some of the chairs move really... More

Three trips have given me an appreciation of the area. I'm an old cruiser and there are plenty of cruisers for me. There are a variety of runs for people of all abilities from beginners to people who think jumping off cliffs is fun. If you go, download Sunshine's app, it will make your experience much better.

I was up at Sunshine Village again this past weekend for a conference/banquet. Skied everywhere on the mountain. Lots of snow and great conditions throughout the entire area. Not crowded despite the great conditions. On hill shops and restaurants still in full operation with discounts in the shops. All lifts still operating. Skiing and snowboarding is not over yet.

Took time out from work trip to snowboard at Sunshine village after becoming addicted to the sport over Christmas. Mid week so no crowds. Easy to find. Rented a snowboard for $40 ( helpful enthusiastic staff) the board was shapeless but caters for all levels I guess. (My tip is ask for a board tailored to your skills). Took the... More

This was my first time at sunshine. We spent two days on the slopes. The first day skiing and the second snowboarding. I am pretty skilled in both so I wanted to compare. The first thing I noticed about the mountain is that there are alot of flat spots, so on skis with poles this wasn't that big of an... More
