Canada’s Best Snow
Close to the Town of Banff, Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard Resort – Canada’s highest elevated resort, has great, guaranteed snow conditions from December to May, with an average annual snowfall of over 30 feet, on over 3,300 acres of terrain!
Plus, enjoy the novel opportunity to ski or ride in both the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia on the same run!
This is where you’ll find Banff-Lake Louise’s premier ski-in, ski-out accommodation, the newly renovated Sunshine Mountain Lodge. Following a multimillion dollar wing replacement, the Lodge opened 30 new eco-luxurious rooms in December 2009.
Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard Resort was awarded “Best View from the Best Off-Piste Run” by Ski Canada magazine.
