Banff Sun­shine of­fers snow­board­ers four sep­a­rate ter­rain parks. Each park is de­signed to al­low rid­ers to progress their skills and build con­fi­dence. Spring Hill Park high­lights a flowy, Holy Bowly-es­que line, Kids Play fo­cuses on begin­ner pro­gres­sion, and The Great Di­vide and Griz­zly Parks fea­ture more tra­di­tional park set-ups.

RE­SORT OVER­VIEW

Banff Sun­shine Vil­lage sits high on the Con­ti­nen­tal Di­vide in the heart of Banff Na­tional Park in the Cana­dian Rock­ies, just 15 min­utes from the vi­brant moun­tain town of Banff. Three sprawl­ing moun­tains pro­vide breath­tak­ing sight lines, un­in­ter­rupted by any signs of civ­i­liza­tion be­yond the re­sort bound­aries. This worl­drenowned re­sort fea­tures more than 3,300 acres of ski­able ter­rain, rang­ing from gen­tle begin­ner runs all the way up to ex­treme, big moun­tain runs. Sun­shine’s very own Delir­ium Dive has been named one of the Top 10 off-piste des­ti­na­tions in the world.

WHAT'S NEW FOR 2018

The new SkiBig3 Guided Ad­ven­ture quickly in­te­grates the vis­it­ing rider into Banff’s lo­cal moun­tain cul­ture. De­signed specif­i­cally for in­ter­me­di­ate or ad­vanced rid­ers who want to dis­cover the hid­den gems of the re­gion with­out wast­ing time (lift-line pri­or­ity), find those pow­der stashes that are eas­ily missed, and learn the best lines on the re­sort all while con­nect­ing with lo­cals who know the ins-and-outs of the moun­tain and lo­cal hot spots. The three-day sched­ule hits up the best of Banff Sun­shine, Lake Louise, and Norquay. For more info, check out SkiBig3.com/guided-ad­ven­tures.
