Sunshine Inversion

Inversion

November 26, 2015

Sunshine Village is currently experiencing a temperature inversion which will last through the weekend much to the excitement of skiers and riders across Alberta. If you’re not familiar with the term, a temperature inversion can result in the temperature being up to 10 degrees warmer in the alpine than in the valley bottom.

For those who have never experience a temperature inversion before, it’s when a warmer air mass covers a colder one and this is exactly what has created the warm temperatures in the village right now.

Sunshine is currently sitting at a solid 106 cm (3 ft, 6 in) settled base which is amazing for Sunshine’s third full week of operation.

Currently all lifts are open, with the exception of the Goat’s Eye Express Quad, and that includes the brand new and Canada’s only heated lift, the Teepee Town LX located on Lookout Mountain.
