BANFF SUNSHINE – EASY ACCESS TO ALPINE
BANFF SUNSHINE – SKI THE HEART OF THE CANADIAN ROCKIES
Banff Sunshine sits high on the Continental Divide in the heart of Banff National Park just 15 minutes’ drive from the cozy mountain town of Banff. Three sprawling mountains provide breathtaking site lines, uninterrupted by any signs of civilization beyond the resort boundaries.
Sunshine’s seven-month season stretches from early November until late May – the longest non-glacial ski season in Canada. Sunshine can receive up to nine metres (30 feet) of snow in a season. With a base-area altitude of 7,200 feet the snow stays light, dry and incredibly skiable.
The world-renowned resort features more than 3,300 acres of skiable terrain, ranging from gentle beginner runs all the way up to extreme big mountain runs. Sunshine’s very own Delirium Dive has been named one of the 10 top off-piste destinations in the world.
Banff Sunshine was awarded “Best View from the Best Off-Piste Run” by Ski Canada magazine.
