Description:

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.

This is our first time skiing in Canada. Our family has beginner/ intermediate skiers. We talked to locals and their favorite spot to ski is Sunshine. Spent two days skiing @ Sunshine. From the parking lot you take a Gondola ride to the lifts. In general the runs are short. There was fresh snow both days and very windy. Lookout... More

I've been coming to sunshine for some 20 odd years now. As a snowboarder it is a challenging mountain, especially if you are here for the first time. You really need to know when to go fast and when you can play around and have fun. The hill is spectacular. Accommodation on mountain is excellent and more affordable than you... More

We stayed up st Sunshine village last weekend. Originally we had booked a normal sized room, as we love skiing all day then ending the day and heading right to our room and the hot tub. Little did I know that my boyfriend had planned to propose that day on the hill, and had called ahead to see if Sunshine... More

I skied 3 days at sunshine and they were terrific. I also took a full day lesson which was good. The views are lovely and the powder is excellent, not a lot of ice. Some of the runs are short but overall I would highly recommend this mountain and I plan to come back. The food was also decent. My... More

Sunshine has great snow conditions and if you are there on a sunny day enjoy some great views. We had a great day skiing with friends.

Went 2 days with the Costco pass. Go early to get a decent parking as the spots get filled the the walk back at the end of the day gets more tiring. Riding up the gondola took a long time, but when you get up there. The view is great and the runs are awesome. The green hills are limited,... More

Our party of six stayed at the Sunshine Mountain Lodge for two nights and did a full day of skiing on the middle day. We found arranging for lift tickets at the base as we checked into the lodge worked well. On the skiing day, four of our party needed to rent equipment ad this was handled efficiently and professionally... More

Visited with 2 girlfriends on a Monday. It was -24 out but it didn't feel as cold as we were expecting except on the open unsheltered runs. Sunshine had just had 3 inches of fresh powder the night before so it was awesome. Prices were great - we got the 'first responders' rate as we all work in healthcare ($72... More

We decided to mix it up a little this year and go skiing for New Years. Sunshine is hit and miss as to how clear the hill will be. The day we chose to ski it was a partial overcast day with a slight wind. It is winter and to be expected. Conditions were wonderful ample snow and any danger... More

I spent few days skiing at Sunshine village, surrounded by magnificent mountains. Couple of these days I used also Snow host tours with Mike and Ginger , and next day with Tom and Jim.... More
