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.

Amazing time at Sunshine Village. Fantastic ski instructors and beautiful scenery. And after a long day on the slopes the Chimney Corner was the perfect place to relax with great food and very friendly staff.

My boyfriend and I did sunshine for a full day. Many of the locals recommend it as it offered lots of variety for different ski levels. I'm a pretty new snowboarder and I found there were many different runs available for me. My boyfriend is more experience and he was able to come down runs with me and branch off... More

Took family and friends to ski for the day. Most had never been before. Everyone loved it. Great place to ski. Only issue was the outdoor restaurant will not allow food from the indoor restaurant to be brought outside. This is an issue for those who don't eat burgers or hot dogs. Maybe they can look at that?

First visit to this Ski Resort. Lots of fresh powder when we were there. Seems like enough bare runs where there is no shelter from the wind. Especially towards top, seems like a nice variety of runs. Seems like there are enough short runs. I liked the chair lift with the hooded shields, got us out of the wind for... More

The snow at Sunshine Village Ski Resort is fabulous. There are a dozen lifts and half of them are high-speed quads, some with covers. There is plenty of skiing at every level from beginner to advanced including plenty of ungroomed terrain. There is glade skiing in the trees, especially great on a day with less visibility. Get to Sunshine from... More
