Great Divide is NOW OPEN!




Great News, Skiers and Snowboarders!

Great Divide Express is Now OPEN for the 2017/18 Ski and Snowboard Season. 


On a blue sky day, Great Divide is the place to ski. The lift runs through two provinces, as it crosses the Continental Divide separating Alberta from British Columbia while whisking skiers and snowboarders up 1423' feet to an elevation of 8954'. Our Great Divide Express, is Canada's Highest lift, from the top of the divide, skiing down Bye-Bye Bowl it's easy to "ski" why the run was named the "must ski of Banff National Park," by Ski Magazine. 


At Sunshine, we're famous for Canada's Best Snow. Our location, high on the Continental Divide makes us a magnet for snow. Divide, being on the divide, makes it that much more so.  With Divide now open, we have 11 of our 12 lifts open, and our team is working on getting Goat's Eye ready. 


With more terrain open, our lift ticket is now at $104 for an adult, and full Sunshine Super Card discounts are now in effect.
