SUNSHINE VILLAGE

Located just 15 minutes from Banff you will reach the base of the gondola and access to Sunshine Village. Spread across three mountain faces and with over 3,300 acres sitting high above the Continental Divide which allows Sunshine Village snow fences to collect over 30 m (9ft) of snow. Over the years we have seen some epic runs and bowls open with Delirium Dive and Wild West offering some fun terrain for the experts. The top of the mountain and village allows endless fun for beginners and intermediate skiers and boarders. 

RECOMMENDATION

If you have ever wanted to stay at the top of a mountain in the quiet of night then this could be the place to experience just that. Once the hustle and bustle of the crowds have left for the day why not stay on the mountain for the evening and get up early to make fresh tracks for the day.
