The Views, the Snow, and the Longest Non-Glacial Season in Canada!

Banff Sunshine Village's unique location will make you feel miles away from civilization, even though you're only a 15-minute drive from the town of Banff. We are located 7,200 feet high on the Continental Divide, in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. Our three mountains offer vast terrain, and will wow you with 360 degrees of uninterrupted mountain views. Banff Sunshine provides terrain suitable for skiers and snowboarders of all ability levels. You can even ski two provinces (Alberta and British Columbia) in one run! Skiers and snowboarders love Sunshine for our snow and our extra long winter. Our seven month ski season stretches from early November until late May, making us the longest non-glacial ski season in Canada. On an average snow year, Banff Sunshine will receive up to nine metres (30 feet) of snow in a season.

Our Three Mountains

Our diverse terrain features runs for skiers of all abilities, and our epic terrain is only made better by our SNOW. We're lucky to be home to Canada's BEST snow. Banff Sunshine Village offers skiers and snowboarders 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 top ten off-piste destinations in the world. The resort also features the massive 12-acre Great Divide Terrain Park, which includes more than 50 features when fully operational.

Our Modern Lift System

Banff Sunshine Village boasts the most modern and efficient lift system in Canada including Canada's only heated chairlift, Teepee Town LX. Our modern fleet of lifts will have you spending less time on a chair and more time on the slopes. Our 12 lifts were built to cover as much terrain as possible. Banff Sunshine Village's lift fleet includes: One eight-person gondola, seven high speed quads, two fixed grip quads, and two beginner zones with moving sidewalk conveyor lifts. One of which is reserved for our tiny tiger (kids 5 and under) learning area.

Our Snow

At Banff Sunshine Village, great snow is a given. Our unique location high on the Continental Divide makes us a natural magnet for snow. As storms move across the Rockies from the Pacific, every last drop of moisture gets squeezed out over the mountains. At Sunshine, we don't make snow, we farm what mother nature gives us. And she gives us pure, WHITE GOLD. Our snow is light, dry, soft, and silky. It will make you feel like a hero as you cruise our 3,300 acres of skiable terrain.
