December 12, 2017, Banff Sunshine- Banff’s premier Ski and Snowboard resort, Banff Sunshine Village, has been named to Conde Nast Traveler’s prestigious list of top 20 ski resorts in Canada and the US. The Top 20 list of resorts featured were chosen by the magazine’s readers. 


Wow! We feel like we've just won an Oscar, or an Espy. We're honored to be named to Conde Nast Traveler's prestigious list of the top 20 ski resorts in North America as voted by readers. With a plethora of great ski resorts, including many of our Mountain Collective Partners, the praise of being voted the 8th Best Ski Resort in North America is humbling.  


We feel privileged  to be able to represent the beauty and majesty of the Canadian Rockies to the readers of Conde Nast Traveler." Say's resorts spokesperson Kenda Scurfield. 


Banff Sunshine Village was voted #8 by readers for our breath talking mountain vistas, dry powdery snow, and a diverse offering of ski and snowboard terrain.  Thank you to everyone who voted. Check out the full list here


With over 3,300 acres of skiable terrain across three mountains Banff Sunshine Village offers a variety of trails for skiers and snowboarders of all levels.  Each lift has a green or blue run option, for intermediate riders. 


Banff Sunshine Village- From Conde Nast Traveler: 


Blessed with amazing vistas, dusted regularly by dry powder snow, and set inside Banff National Park, at 8,954 feet, Canada’s highest elevated ski resort has a lot going for it. (Winter is considered low season for the park, too, which means fewer crowds and sometimes lower rates at hotels than you’ll see in summer.) There are countless ways to revel in Banff Sunshine’s 3,000 acres of terrain, but the best may be the combined lift to the top that crosses the Continental Divide (and both Alberta and British Columbia), followed by an Instagram-worthy run down wide-open Bye Bye Bowl. 


Where to stay: In a castle, of course, at Fairmont Banff Springs

Stats: One-day lift tickets average $89–$92 USD; 12 lifts for 137 trails.
