Overview by Claire Walter

Sunshine Village has the Banff area's only slopeside lodging, featuring a small, high-mountain village surrounded by ski slopes. To reach the village (cars are prohibited), skiers and snowboarders ride a six- passenger gondola from the parking lot. Skiing began back in 1928 in the vast Sunshine Village bowl, which offers all levels of terrain. Today, Goat's Eye Mountain supplements this snow-sure aerie. Served by the world's fastest high-speed chairlift and boasting some of North America's most surefire challenging terrain, Goat's Eye has put Sunshine on the map.

Traveler Reviews of Sunshine Village

John rates Sunshine Village
I spent a week in Banff and skied all three areas available, Sunshine Village was the most interesting.Start with the gondola from the parking lot and after changing lifts a few times you are at the top of the Canadian Rockies.Vistas are fantastic and the snow conditions seem to always be perfect.This place is like a little alpine village. Many nice cruising trails and some very challenging trails also.I will definitely go back to Banff. Of all the places I have skied....Banff is THE BEST. Pros: Short lines, Well maintained, Good tours. Cons: Bad location.
