Choose from more than 100 runs at this ski resort located 15 minutes from Banff.

Sunshine Village is one of three ski resorts in Banff National Park. It offers more than 3,300 acres (1,335 hectares) of slopes, with 12 lifts and more than 100 runs. The ski season is from early November through late May. Come to hike between June and October.

There’s just one hotel in the resort, so most visitors come by day trip from Banff or Calgary. It’s a 15-minute drive from Banff and 90 minutes from Calgary. Regular bus services operate from Banff and Calgary to the resort every day. There are restaurants, shops and ski rental facilities at Sunshine Village.

The resort typically gets about 30 feet (9 meters) of snow in a season. The mountains are high enough that the snow stays dry and powdery throughout the season.

The resort encompasses three mountains: Mount Standish, Goat’s Eye Mountain and Lookout Mountain. At the highest point, the range is 8,954 feet (2,730 meters) above sea level.

Ski runs cater to beginner, intermediate and advanced levels, as well as snowboarders. Sign up for a lesson in advance or on the day. Experienced skiers can rent a guide and hit the off-piste areas. Expect fresh powder and deserted slopes.

The mountains are easily navigated using maps at each lift and clearly marked runs. Stop for a break at one of nine eateries across the resort that range from casual to fine dining.

In summer, the mountains are covered with wild flowers. There are hiking trails for all fitness levels and guided walks are organized daily.

During the ski season, lifts are open every day. Day or season passes for the lift can be bought online or from offices in Calgary, Banff and Sunshine Village.
