We come here every Easter with a huge group of families. This was our 5th year! We love to stay on the hill as it caters to everyone's skiing levels and interest. The rooms are nice but very dry and hot. The food service is not great. For such a great resort, the food is average at best.

had an awesome visit and time!!! We enjoyed the hill lines were not long this time. We ate at all locations and the food was great too. The only thing was the dining room did take a while but we did have a large group. Definately the way to go is to stay on the hill. We'll be back again...

It is such a treat to stay on the mountain and watch the sunset and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The food in the lounge was incredible, must try the fish and short ribs! The rooms are so comfy and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Room was smaller than expected but clean and cozy. So nice to be able to ski in/ski out. Service in Chimney Corner could have been better but the food was excellent. Check-in and check-out was super easy.

I was really impressed with the mountain and that was about it. The rooms were tiny for 550$ a night. The service in the restaurant was horrible the food was even worse all 4 of us ordered eggs benidict and the potatoes were cold (no exaduration) the eggs were hard as if they were boiled but we ate it anyways...

Great Trip. Thank you for the memories. Service at Sunshine Mt Lodge was great. We found service at Mad Trappers to be so so. They were more interested in serving the employees The bar and facilities at the day lodge shut down very early. I like to ski until 3pm and have a couple of drinks but they were already...

We have stayed at Sunshine Mountain Village previously over many years. We found the facilities better than ever. The staff was friendly and efficient. The location on the hill is amazing, with great views and access to the ski lifts. We will stay here again!

I signed up for two snowshoe hikes while my family visited Sunshine Village. I had the great fortune of having Bree as my guide both days! Not only was Bree knowledgeable about absolutely everything Banff, she was a ton of fun as well! The first hike was a family hike, which included me, my hubs, and our two teens and...

My husband and I recently went to Sunshine for a couple of days skiing with family. On the first night I experienced a medical emergency and the staff responded very promptly and professionally. All of the staff were very kind and caring from the medical staff, front desk, housekeeping and dining room. I can't thank everyone enough for being so...

We were lucky to be there for a weekend of fresh snow and blue skies. Awesome location for the experienced and beginner skier...one can ski all day and the other take their time and even go for an afternoon nap. Service was friendly and you were always greeted with a smile. Food was not that great and overpriced. However I...
