Top Moments of Summer 2022

Summer 2022 was the first time in 2 years that Banff Sunshine Meadows has been open, and boy was it a doozy! Kicking our Sunshine summer off with skiing on Canada Day, a seven-foot snow trench and damaged bridges due to a record snowfall we eventually got our hot summer days.


Take a walk through some of our top moments of summer 2022:


June 24th, 2022: Banff Sunshine Meadows Opening day!


June 28th, 2022: Strawberry Express starts spinning for the first day of summer skiing from June 28th to July 3rd.


July 1st, 2022: Open for Canada Day for the first time since 1991. Due to a cool spring, we were able to have 2 runs (Rock Isle Road & Dell Valley) and a small park set up for the enjoyment of Canadians from across the country. This was an extraordinary day that will forever be a part of history, as it was the first time we had summer skiing in 31 years!
