Situated high along the Continental Divide in Banff National Park, Sunshine Village is home to breathtaking views and one of Canada’s longest ski seasons. Sunshine Village is Canada’s highest elevated resort and is located in the heart of Banff National Park.
The ski area encompasses more than 3,300 skiable acres and terrain ranges from long groomed runs to steep expert trails.
Sunshine Village's terrain spreads across three mountains; Goats Eye, Lookout Mountain and Mount Standish. Goat’s Eye contains mostly expert terrain with challenging steeps, moguls and some tree glades. Lookout Mountain is home to some expert terrain towards the top with more intermediate and beginner trails at lower elevations. Mount Standish is predominately beginner terrain but contains some advanced terrain worth checking out.
The famous Delirium Dive is an expert's only area that requires avalanche equipment to enter. Delirium Dive is truly for the expert skier and some lines end with mandatory cliff drops. This area is considered to be some of the most extreme lift accessed in-bounds terrain in the world.
Head up the Continental Divide Express chairlift to Lookout Mountain and ski in two provinces on one run. Sunshine Village is Canada’s highest elevated resort with guaranteed snow conditions from December to May and an average annual snowfall of over 30 feet.
