The World Ski Awards has categories for the Best Ski Resort, Best Ski Hotel, Best Ski Boutique Hotel and Best Ski Chalet for each of the world’s top 25 ski tourism nations. This year, we're proud to announce we've once again been nominated for the titles of:


·         Canada's Best Ski Resort 2018

·         Canada's Best Ski Boutique Hotel 2018


At Banff Sunshine Village, we are on a mission to be Canada's leading alpine resort. Skiers and snowboarders around the world come every season to discover and enjoy what makes us unique.



What makes us different?


1. We’re home to Canada’s Best Snow

Our location 7,200 feet high on the Continental Divide, in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, makes us a natural magnet for the greatest snow in the country. As Canada’s highest Ski & Snowboard resort, Mother Nature spoils us with light, dry, soft, and silky snow every season. Our delicious natural snow creates incredible ski and snowboarding conditions, complemented by views so picturesque they leave you with an indelible in-print.


2. Extra-long winter season means extra-long fun

The fun at Sunshine Village starts in early November and rides all the way through to late May. Our seven-month shred season makes us the longest non-glacial ski season in Canada. With nearly 200 days of skiing and snowboarding in the Canadian Rockies, there are no excuses not to enjoy the world-class slopes of Sunshine’s three mountains.


3. Our diverse ski and snowboard terrain offers something for everyone

Our vast and varied terrain is suitable for all ability levels of winter sport enthusiasts from first timers to the most extreme riders who want to access the most extreme big mountain runs. Our 3 mountains offer more than 3,500 acres of skiable terrain in which all ages and ability levels can have tons of fun.


4. Our high-speed lift system takes you further, faster

Skiers and snowboarders at Banff Sunshine Village not only have more mountains to explore and enjoy, but they’re also treated to the fastest and most modern lift system in Canada, which includes the country’s only heated high-speed lift Teepee Town LX. Our efficient lift system will have you riding in comfort (and warmth) allowing you to spend more time carving down our slopes.


5. Getting here is easy

For skiers looking for convenience, part of the added beauty of Banff Sunshine Village is our location just 90 minutes west of Calgary, and 15 minutes west of Banff, on the Trans Canada Highways (1). Our convenient location allows visitors to enjoy both day trips and extend ski-cations while relaxing from the hustle of the city.


6. You can stay in and be the first on the slopes

Sunshine Mountain Lodge is the only ski-in, ski-out hotel in Banff National Park. Located in the heart of Sunshine Village, the breathtaking scenery of the Canadian Rockies makes our hotel unique in every way. When you stay, it’s almost surreal to know that the best snow and runs are just footsteps from your room. Get up early and have the slopes just for yourself.

At the lodge, we also offer casual and fine dining, one of the largest hot tubs in Canada and family-friendly activities.




7. Our dedicated team

At Banff Sunshine Village, we’re committed to providing you with service that will WOW you. It’s our goal to be the place where we create memories, that will last a lifetime. Our team focuses on delivering service excellence to all guests so you can feel Banff Sunshine like your second home. This commitment was recognized with an ALTO (Travel Alberta Tourism Award) in 2016.
