Why would you vote for us?


1. Sunshine Village is home to Canada’s Best Snow

Our location 7,200 feet high on the Continental Divide, in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, makes us a natural magnet for the greatest snow in the country. As Canada’s highest Ski & Snowboard resort, Mother Nature spoils us with light, dry, soft, and silky snow every season. Our delicious natural snow creates an incredible ski and snowboarding conditions, complemented by views so picturesque they leave you with an indelible in-print.


2. The extra-long winter season means extra-long fun

The fun at Sunshine Village starts in early November and rides all the way through to late May. Our seven-month shred season makes us the longest non-glacial ski season in Canada. With nearly 200 days of skiing and snowboarding in the Canadian Rockies, there are no excuses not to enjoy the world-class slopes of Sunshine’s three mountains.


3. Sunshine's diverse ski and snowboard terrain offers something for everyone

Our vast and varied terrain is suitable for all ability levels of winter sports enthusiasts from first-timers to the most extreme riders who want to access the most extreme big mountain runs. Our 3 mountains offer more than 3,500 acres of skiable terrain in which all ages and ability levels can have tons of fun.
