Things to Do \

Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard Resort sits high on the Continental Divide in the heart of Banff National Park-- a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Just 15 minutes' drive from the mountain town of Banff, three sprawling mountains provide breathtaking views uninterrupted by any signs of civilization beyond the resort's leasehold. At Sunshine Village you can ski in two provinces - Alberta and British Columbia - in one run.

Sunshine Village's seven-month season stretches from early November until late May-- the longest non-glacial ski season in Canada. From the top of Lookout Mountain at 2,806m (9,200ft) to the village at 2,158m (7,082ft), our high altitude ensures light, dry, natural snow falls and stays all season. In any given season, Sunshine Village can receive up to nine metres (30 feet) of snow.

The resort features more than 3,300 acres of skiable terrain, ranging from gentle, inviting beginner runs all the way up to steep expert terrain. Sunshine’s famous Delirium Dive terrain has been named one of top 10 off-piste destinations in the world. The resort is also home to Banff’s only ski in, ski out hotel, the Sunshine Mountain Lodge.

NEW for the 2015 / 2016 season is the Tee Pee Town quad lift. The first of its kind in Canada, this luxury lift features orange bubble covers for protection from wind and weather, heated seats, and footrests to make your trip up the mountain even more enjoyable.
