6 Tips to Best Enjoy Christmas Holidays at Banff Sunshine

From our Banff Sunshine family to yours, we're wishing you a very merry christams. 


At Sunshine, we like to say that the winter holidays "Tis' the season to SKI!" With the kids out of school, the office closed, there really is no place to

be but with the company of those you love; in a place that thrills and delights you. Since you've no place you need to go, let it snow, and enjoy the fresh mountain air at Banff Sunshine Village. 


So far, this December, Mother Nature has spoiled us with generous dumpings of Canada's Best Snow.  We at Banff Sunshine,  want to invite you out to the Canadian Rockies to ski the difference of natural snow, as you take in the breathtaking beauty of a truly white Christmas. With nearly a meter of new snow in the past 10 days, and a solid 55 cm ( 21.7 in) in the past week, the skiing at Sunshine is the best in the Rockies. 


With a settled snow base of 138 cm (4'5") our team has been able to open more terrain, including Goat's Eye Express and our Rockstar Terrain Park off of Divide for you and your family to carve up, as you dash through the powder.  


As we look ahead to the weather forecast for the Christmas holidays, it looks like our wish for more fresh powder will be answered. The Weather Network is predicting snowfall for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day (hurray!).  If you, like us, are dreaming of a white Christmas, here are a few of our tips to enjoy the magic of Christmas at Banff Sunshine!
