Sunshine Village sits in the middle of Banff National Park and offers an excellent opportunity to ski above the tree line and see the magnificent back-country of B.C. and Alberta. In a single run, you can cross the continental divide, skiing from Alberta to B.C and back again. 100% natural cover is pretty much a certainty as Sunshine Village has an elevation and proximity to the divide that usually results in more snow here than at any other Alberta resort and, more often than not, it is the champagne powder variety! Sunshine Village boasts fantastic lift-accessed steeps and they have recently opened new free-ride zones on Goat's Eye Mountain and off the backside of Lookout Mountain, with terrain to test even the pros.

Visitor Reviews of Sunshine Village

Dean Dolph from Canada writes:

People always wonder how the burgers can be that bad. Just watch. The indoor restaurants follow these guidelines: take frozen sub-standard patty, place on grill, spray with water mist, cover, flip and repeat several times until sufficiently steamed..I mean fried. Year after year it's their recipe for success. I'm 55 now.
