Sunshine Village, Banff National Park
(4.1/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Ski way up on the Continental Divide at Sunshine Village, a ski and snowboard resort. With a feeling of wilderness and wildness (though just a 15-minute drive from town), the resort offers runs and routes for visitors of all ages and abilities. Thanks to 9 m (30 ft) of natural snowfall per season and an altitude of 2,195 m (7,200 ft), the powder here stays dry throughout. A large terrain park boasts a range of exciting obstacles, jumps, and bumps for the daring. Plan to see Sunshine Village and other attractions that appeal to you using our Banff family vacation planner.

  • Great opening week riding. Well groomed runs and a touch of fresh pow pow. Friendly service all over. 
  • I've been to Sunshine many times over many years, both as a skier and a boarder, and always love going. Great variety of runs, decent lodge and cafeteria, great lifts at moderate speeds. Love the gond...  more »
  • Weekend ski trip . Hotel at the hill was old and well used but clean . Probably the best one could ask for based on the age and we wanted the ski from the door experience. Pricey menu for hotel guests...  more »

  • Nice food! We are going to the Sunshine Mountain Lodge next year so I will write another review then. I have only been to the restaurant so far but I can certainly say that the food there is amazing. Especially good burgers!
  • Purchased tickets to ride the gondola up mid-summer. Almost like heli-hiking, but with a much smaller price tag! We hiked to Citadel Pass and back (21 km), but there are several other shorter hiking options available. Last half of July is great for wildflowers and September/early October for golden larch season.
  • Everything you need. If I had enough money I could live here all winter. Beautiful location, nice rooms, good food, lots to do, great amenities, and friendly, interesting staff.
  • Everything you would ever want in a Mountain. All abilities, slack country and extreme freeride.. all originating from here!
  • One of the earliest ski resorts to open in Alberta thanks to the long gondola ride up. Good pow early in the season.
