Sunshine Village sits high on the Continental Divide in the heart of Banff National Park, yet 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’s leasehold. It is possible to ski in two provinces – Alberta and British Columbia – in one run. The resort features more than 3,300 acres of skiable terrain, ranging from gentle, inviting beginner runs all the way up to extreme off-piste runs. Sunshine Village boasts the longest non-glacial ski season in Canada and is now home to Canada’s hottest chairlift—Teepee Town LX which is the first chairlift in Canada with heated seats. The lift also includes footrests and orange bubble covers and gets you up the mountain in less than five minutes.
