DEDICATED TO OFFERING THE BEST (LIKE OUR SNOW) QUALITY SKI AND SNOWBOARD PROGRAMS FOR ALL OF OUR GUESTS.

What makes learning to ski or snowboard at Sunshine so fun? The contagious enthusiasm of our instructors! Our team of pros will inspire you to learn new skills as you become the skier or snowboarder of your dreams. At Banff Sunshine we offer innovative beginner programs for those new to the sport. For the more experienced skier or snowboarder, we offer small group workshops and private sessions to help fine tune your skills. We want you to be the best skier or snowboarder you can be while enjoying Sunshine's three mountains on your ski day or vacation! With a lesson, you'll learn new skills which will allow you to ski all the terrain that Banff Sunshine has to offer. If you don’t think we have been successful in achieving this goal, please come to any one of our sales desks and let us know as soon as your lesson is finished. We will arrange for another lesson free of charge; that’s our snow guarantee.

Kids Lessons

For parents, we know that there is nothing like seeing the smile on the faces of your young ones as they discover the new confidence that comes from learning to ski or snowboard through playful instruction and experimentation. At the Banff Sunshine Snow School we guarantee you'll watch you kids grow in greens, blues and blacks.

Teen Lessons

Teens have the potential to go from being a "never-ever" to being the master of Goat's Eye, faster that you can say Delirium Dive. At the Banff Sunshine Snow School your teen will be linking turns so smooth you'll ask "when did they get snow good?" Let our certified instructors custom tailor a learning experience for your teen as they learn to tackle everything from groomers to moguls to powder.

Adult Lessons

The adult ski and ride group lesson experience will give you the chance to challenge new terrain while working on technique and skill development. Your instructor will show you the best terrain and you'll enjoy lift-line priority. Ski and ride group lessons are available as a full day or half day programs and are available for skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels.
