We invite you to join us on the slopes this Easter, as you escape from “your” world and enjoy time with your family and friends. On Easter Sunday, join us (on the mountain top) for our annual Easter Service on the top of Strawberry Express. Enjoy the peace of the holy day, as you pay your respects from the top of the Rockies, overlooking our mountain resort.

 

With lots of snow and a bounty of spring sunshine, Easter on the slopes of Banff Sunshine is the place to be. What makes Easter at Banff Sunshine Village so special?
