Winter Holidays are for SKIING

It’s a well-known fact, across Canada, that the winter vacation was created for the intention of spending quality time outdoors with the family. What better way, to spend the holiday season, than carving up the slopes at Banff Sunshine Village with those nearest and dearest to you. 


At Banff Sunshine, we’re on a mission to be North America’s leading family ski and snowboard resort. Our three mountains of diverse terrain offer ideal slopes for skiers and snowboards of all levels from first time to pro.



What we hear back from families is they love skiing and riding Banff Sunshine because of:


-       Our friendly persona. When enjoying the Canadian Rockies at Sunshine, we encourage you to engage with our team. As a team, our priority is to ensure you have “the best ski day, EVER.” When on the mountain, look for our team in bright Sunshine uniforms. 


-       Our “extra” soft, natural snow. At Sunshine, we don’t make snow. Instead, we farm what mother nature gives us. When skiing or riding at Sunshine, you’ll feel the difference as you carve into our mountain terrain. For those new to the sport, our natural snow makes learning more forgiving. 


-       Our Mountain Layout, at Sunshine our 3,358 acres of skiable terrain all funnels into either our village base or our gondola base. For families, this makes skiing and riding at Sunshine a breeze, as picking and finding an end of the day meeting place is easier than mastering the bunny hill.
