Spring, "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!" @Banff Sunshine!

On March 18th, The Snowbirds return to Sunshine Village. Every spring the snow birds flock to our mountain resort for Canada's Best Spring Skiing and our FATTEST Powder of the season! So far this March, we have already received upwards of 110 cm (3'7") of Canada's Best Snow (That's taller than a third grader!).

And now for the good news?? We're just getting into powder season! The snow is expected to continue to fall all week(end) long in the Canadian Rockies.

On March 18th, our Spring Seasons Passes come into full effect, and we officially enter our spring ski season. Our spring season at Sunshine is 66 days of fun in the snow (or should we say SUNSHINE?).

With the start of the Spring @ Sunshine, we've extended our hours of operations so you can enjoy longer days on the slopes. Starting March 18th:

  • The Sunshine Village Gondola will be open daily till 6:30 pm (10:30pm on Fridays)
  • Standish, Wawa, Angel, Strawberry, Divide, Teepee Town, Wolverine, and Goat's Eye will be open daily till 4:30 pm
  • Jackrabbit will be open daily till 5 pm 

If you haven't experienced spring in the Rockies, you're missing out. Ski the best of Spring, as you shred big mountains, and good times. At Sunshine, we live for and come to live in the spring. If you're looking for a good time this spring, checkout out our Sunshine Spring Pass. (Your pass to two months of unlimited skiing and snowboarding, concerts, and the the biggest party in the Rockies (the 89th Slush Cup). If you haven't purchased your spring pass yet, do so here.
