Ski Patrol Avalanche Awareness and Control
Within the boundaries of Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard Resort, Sunshine Village Ski Patrol operates an extensive avalanche control program. Through a variety of methods, the ski patrollers protect skiers from the dangers of avalanches.
Outside the boundaries, no avalanche control is undertaken; it is your responsibility to educate yourselves on identifying the hazards and how to protect yourselves in Banff, Alberta’s backcountry.
