Sunshine Mountain Lodge

Dec 20, 2012

The Sunshine Mountain Lodge has a lot to offer after the gondola stops running

World renowned for exceptional powder skiing and riding, Sunshine Village also provides a number of après ski activities once the sun goes down and the high speed chair lifts close for the night.

Sunshine Mountain Lodge, the resort’s 84-room eco-luxurious, upscale hotel, features Banff National Park’s only slopeside accommodation.

For those looking to get away and enjoy an intimate, back-to-nature experience in the middle of a UNESCO World Heritage site, the hotel offers a tranquil experience in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.

Après ski activities at the Sunshine Mountain Lodge, Banff’s only ski-in, ski-out hotel, include:     

Snowshoe around the village and see the resort in a new whole new light. Trek between snow-heavy pine, surrounded by deep, untouched powder to take in spectacular mountain views.

Enjoy an authentic winter experience, with old fashioned tobogganing. What better way to involve the whole family in good-natured, outdoor fun, than sliding down the mountain like days of long ago.

Relax in one of the largest outdoor hot pools in Canada. The lodge’s 30 person hot tub is a great way to unwind after a successful day on the slopes.

If you’ve had a particularly vigorous day on the slopes, the Sunshine Mountain Lodge has spa treatments available. A hot stone massage is sure to be just what the doctor ordered. Warm aromatic stones are gently placed on your body as you are massaged with them. Ease the weight of the world and heighten your sense of well-being with a relaxation or deep tissue stone massage.

Surely you will have worked up an appetite after a day skiing or riding on the champagne powder at Sunshine Village. After the lifts close, there are numerous dining options. Whether you’re looking for a casual dinner by the fireplace in the Chimney Corner Lounge, or a multi-course gourmet dinner in our Eagle’s Nest dining room, the Sunshine Mountain Lodge takes on-mountain dining to the next level.  

For those looking for little night life, enjoy a cool pint with other guests at Mad Trapper’s Saloon. Located in the Old Sunshine Lodge, enjoy the rich character and history as you swap ski stories of the day’s success.
