What's it like at Sunshine Village resort?
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
Rob F from Canada writes:
Incredible skiing here with something for everyone. Iconic views, great slack country, consistent snow quality, in-bounds extreme zones. If you're a so-called local Bow Valley "expert" always telling everyone how proud you are of yourself, and have never done a super-lap (Delirium Dive to Wild West) then us city folks will have a good laugh:)
