Sunshine Village is a big mountain resort close to Calgary and Banff. It's made up of several mountains if you want to get specific, but the entire ski area is accessed by one lift at the base lodge. Fortunately this lift is the Gondola, and is the fastest lift and has the highest capacity, so the base area doesn't get too bottlenecked with the crowds.

When going up the Gondola the first mountain you will arrive at is Goat's Eye. This is the lowest mountain and usually has the least amount of snow, but there are some good mogul fields there in the spring. The new Wild West zone is also accessible off the Goat's Eye quad.

The second stop the Gondola makes is the Daylodge and Inn. This is where the majority of other lifts are based. To the west is Wawa Ridge, accessed by a short, slow lift. It's worth the wait as there are usually powder stashes to be found there. To the South is Standish, a zone filled with short steeps and drops. And finally to the east is Continental Divide, a lift that takes you across the Alberta / British Columbia border. This is also where the terrain park is, and access to the Delirium Dive and Silver City areas.

All you will find up here is three double chairs and a rope tow [now 1 quad, 2 doubles, and a magic carpet], but you will likely be shredding with few oth... [ Read More ]
This big mountain rarely disappoints, unless of course you trash your gear on some early season rocks. The upper parts of the mountain are gnarly, with steep chutes everywhere off the top ridges that throw you out into wide open bowls. Once you get out of the alpine you will find decent tree skiing, quite a few groomers and a lengthy cat track that can have some fun features off the edges. The ba... [ Read More ]
Located deep in Southern Alberta right on the Alberta/B.C. border Castle Mountain is tucked away in a spot that not many travel to, making it another sleepy hill. This mountain has a small mountain feel with some serious big mountain terrain and a ton of backcountry to explore in the right conditions. [ Read More ]
