Best Kept Gems at Banff Sunshine Village

At Banff Sunshine, we are located high in the Canadian Rockies, giving our resort uninterrupted mountain views, amplified by sunshine!  


To make the most of your visit to Banff Sunshine carving up Canada's Best Snow, we have created a list of our favorite runs at the resort.


Here are 3 Green Runs that are proof you can get amazing views on any run:  


1. Meadow Park – To access this longer scenic run take a lookers right off the Wawa Quad Chair. While you are working your way over to the run look to your left to check out where some skiers have hiked to reward themselves with fresh turns.   


2. Prune Pickers Pass – Another one of our cruiser green runs can be accessed by taking a lookers right from the top of Standish Express.  


3. Rock Isle Road - Unloading off our beginner chair, Strawberry Express, will take you right to this lift. As you move straight, away from the lift you will be presented with jaw-dropping views.   


Blue Runs that confirm you don’t have to be an expert skier or snowboarder to be rewarded with breathtaking views:  


4.World Cup Downhill – This Banff Sunshine classic is a quick skiers right off our longest char, Great Divide. The chair may take longer than the others but the view at the top is so worth it.  


5. Raptor – While on Goats Eye Express sit back and soak up the sunshine. Once at the top take a lookers right to access this run. You will be rewarded with panoramic views of the resort.

3 Black Diamond Runs with unbeatable views:

8. Goat’s Head Soup – This run, along with all of the South Side Chutes are a lookers right off Goats Eye Express. You may have to do a small amount of hiking but the top to bottom views of Delirium Dive is so worth it. Now that we are later into the season, the sun hits inside the Dive creating an unmissable view.
