Sunshine Village

Home/Tag:Sunshine Village

Sunshine Village Ski Resort is one of the premier skiing destinations in the Canadian Rockies. The Resort has over 4,000 acres of skiable terrain and has three different mountains for skiers and snowboarders to barrel down.

Only a 20-minute drive from Banff townsite, Sunshine Village is easily accessible and offers some of the best snow (champagne powder) for skiing and snowboarding  in Banff. This tag delves into all aspects of what a ski trip here looks like. From being whisked up the Sunshine Gondola into the Village to where to eat on mountain to all the things you can do here besides skiing.

There is a spa at the Village offering massages and facials during the winter season or non-skiers could take a guided snowshoe experience, following an ancient trading route in Banff National Park. Yoga and barre classes are also offered on the mountain throughout the year and we have posts reviewing those group fitness classes.

Sunshine Mountain Lodge is the only ski-in ski-out accommodation in Banff National Park and we have posts providing all the information. A stay there provides access to the outdoor hot tub, sledding, plus first tracks. Ideally, you’d stay in one of their loft suites that offer floor to ceiling windows and plenty of room for families to spread out.

The resort is also a top destination wedding venue in the Canadian Rockies – all throughout the year. In summer, hikers are welcome to take the gondola up to the village and hike through Sunshine Meadows, a wildlife and wildflower filled hike Lonely Planet once dubbed Canada’s #1 hike.
