At Sunshine, we spend a lot of time and energy planning events and activities that extend beyond the working experience. We believe that a big part of the employee experience is the opportunity to socialise and enjoy some of the incredible advantages that living in the Rocky Mountains and Bow Valley has to offer.

The resort has terrain to suit all abilities.

Snowshoe Tour Of The Village
Once the lifts close for the evening and the stars are out, grab a pair of snowshoes and take a walk through the village. After your evening stroll, grab a steaming mug of hot chocolate fireside at the Chimney Corner Lounge.
On select evenings at the Sunshine Mountain Lodge, the ski runs turn into tobogganing hills. Ask for a toboggan from our front desk and have a blast sliding down the mountain trails that surround the village.
Tobogganing available Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday evenings after lifts have closed on traditional Maplewood toboggans.

Banff's Largest Outdoor Hot Pool
After a vigorous day on the slopes, unwind in one of Banff’s largest outdoor hot pools. Complete the relaxation experience with a visit to our cedar-lined dry sauna.
After-Hours At Mad Trapper’s Saloon
For adults looking for some after-hours fun, the Mad Trapper’s Saloon provides a historic and authentic old-lodge experience. Built in 1928 by the Canadian Pacific Railway, the venue has now been transformed into a rustic mountain pub.
Movie Nights
