Ski Sunshine Village
ski sunshine village, banff
Boasting almost 100% soft, natural snow, Sunshine Village is renowned for it's lengthy ski season from mid-November until late May.

Located just a 15 minute drive from the world-class resort town of Banff, skiers and riders can hop aboard a new high-speed 8 passenger gondola and arrive to over 3,300 acres of stunning alpine terrain in under 13 minutes.

Located at the top of the Continental Divide, the majority of the terrain at Sunshine Village is above 7,000 feet, far above the hustle & bustle of the valley below.

Lift lineups are never an issue at Sunshine Village as the resort features 12 different lifts including seven modern quad chairs - the most in the Rockies. New this year, Sunshine has replaced Standish double chair with a quad chairlift and will add more advanced terrain on Goat's Eye mountain.
