PLAN YOUR TRIP AT SUNSHINE VILLAGE
Sunshine Village sits high on the Continental Divide in the heart of Banff National Park, yet just 15 minutes’ drive from the cozy mountain town of Banff. Three sprawling mountains provide breathtaking sitelines, uninterrupted by any signs of civilization beyond the resort’s leasehold.
It is possible to 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 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.
It’s truly Canada’s Best Snow. The resort features more than 3,300 acres of skiable terrain, ranging from gentle, inviting beginner runs all the way up to the most extreme big mountain runs. Delirium Dive has been named one of the 10 top off-piste destinations in the world. The resort also features the massive 12-acre Rogers Terrain Park with more than 50 features once fully operational. The resort also features 12 lifts, including nine superlifts, and a high-speed gondola.
