About the Resort

Awarded “Best View from the Best Off-Piste Run” by Ski Canada magazine, Banff Sunshine sits high on the Continental Divide in the heart of Banff National Park, just a 15 minute drive from the cozy mountain town of Banff. Three sprawling mountains provide breathtaking site lines, uninterrupted by any signs of civilization beyond the resort’s leasehold.

Sunshine's unique location acts as natural magnet for snow, making great snow a given. With Sunshine’s seven-month season stretching from early November until late May – the longest non-glacial ski season in Canada – Sunshine can receive up to nine metres in snow in a single season. As storms move across the Rockies from the Pacific, every last drop of moisture gets squeezed out over the mountains. The Village’s altitude of 7,200 feet ensures the snow stays light and dry. The snow feels like silk as guests cruise across the versatile terrain.

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 Village strives to provide guests with incredible memories that will last a lifetime. Committed to every individual's ski journey, Sunshine works to ensure that every guest has the mountain experience of their dreams. In 2016, Banff Sunshine Village won the Travel Alberta Tourism Award for service excellence as a result of a company wide initiative to turn every guest into a raving fan of the Canadian Rockies and Banff Sunshine Village.

Whether you're a local, or just visiting, Banff Sunshine will offer all guests memories to last a lifetime. Stop by where the sun never stops shining!
