4 Ways to Skip the Line & Save on Lift Tickets!

Hit the slopes quicker this winter with a pre-paid Sunshine product.


Winter is finally here! Are you heading to the mountains with your crew soon? Be sure to arrive prepared.


While we will not require reservations to access the slopes this season, we recommend you arrive with your Season Pass, Direct to Lift Sunshine Super Card, Mobile Lift Ticket, or Pre-Paid Lift Ticket.


These options will not only allow you to skip the ticket line but will save you some cash!


Here’s a quick look at 4 ways to hit the slopes quicker this season:



1. Mobile Lift Tickets



Banff Sunshine Village is the only resort in North America to offer a mobile lift ticket that can be purchased through our free Ski Banff app. With our mobile ticket, once your phone is scanned, you can head straight up the gondola.


Right now, take advantage of our Mobile Ticket pricing and save $10 off the regular window ticket price.

2. Costco Tickets

Your Costco Lift Tickets are back on sale at last year’s price, and it’s now available in 24 Costco locations across Alberta, Saskatchewan y Manitoba.


For just $179.99, you get a pack with 2 full-day adult lift tickets. You will ride for only $89.99 each visit, meaning you will be saving $37 ($74 in total) off the window rate!


Even cooler, you will not need to stop at our ticket windows when you arrive. You can head straight to the gondola and start your Sunshine Day.

3. Sunshine Super Card




Sunshine Super Cards are available for purchase on our estore, at our Calgary Snow Central, at our ticket windows, and at third party retailers.


For just $99, you score 3 FREE days and 1 BONUS day of skiing or riding at 6 resorts, including Banff Sunshine, Marmot Basin, Revelstoke, WinSport, Snow Valley, and Rabbit Hill.


To reduce interactions this season, we recommend that all Sunshine Super Cards be upgraded to a Direct-to-Lift Pass (DTL). Upgrading your Super Card is free and can be done at our Calgary Snow Central office in advance or at Guest Services at the resort.


A DTL pass links your credit card and your Sunshine Super Card, so you can skip the Sunshine ticket window and go directly to the gondola every time you visit us. Your new pass will keep track of all your visits and act as a super card to obtain your discounts at Banff Sunshine and all our partner resorts.


Learn more about our Sunshine Super Card here.


Super cards are $99 until Dec 27, prices go up to $133 Dec 28.
