New Memories To Be Made

Each year, we’re asked, “what’s new at Sunshine this winter?” It’s funny, how we antiquate NEW with so much meaning.


At Banff Sunshine Village, we’re a place where memories are formed. This year, we look forward to creating hundreds of thousands of new memories that our guests will take home to cherish. 


For our first-time skiers and snowboarders, these memories will hold on to the excitement of seeing the Rockies as they experience sliding (or even playing) on snow.


For the wild and daring skiers and snowboarders, memories of high adrenalin thrills will be cemented in the rider's soul. From first to hundredth descent down Delirium Dive.


As our opening day approaches, we’re excited to welcome all the new and returning faces to our slopes. We’re crossing our fingers, and dancing for snow! Each year, the mountain fills up with snow in a new and different way. In our Alpine terrain, how the mountain is dressed in snow makes for new adventures as the returning skier rediscovers new runs along with old favourites.


For us, 2018, is a special year. It marks the 90th year in our history. In our time, we’ve inspired millions of smiles, laughs, and cheers of victory. As skiers and snowboarders, we all know the sense of triumph gained at stomping a trick or mastering a carve. In the mountains of the Canadian Rockies, winter shines brightly.


Let winter shine, as you ride on Sunshine. With the start of NEW ski season just weeks away, what we are most excited for is you to grace our slopes! Embrace the thrill of winter, and play outside.


Head to the Rockies and take home new memories this ski season. While we wait for Opening Day, let’s do a recap of YOUR favourite memories of winter 2017/18.  Here are the 10 most liked photos of Instagram from November 8, 2017 – May 21, 2018.
