I think it’s one of the nicer hotels it Banff. The hotel sits mid mountain rather than right in the town.

You can ski almost to the back door to the west wing because of the way it is situated. F... + more

Location - where is Sunshine Mountain Lodge

· skiing to and from the door · great location at the top of the Sunshine gondola

Overview - hotel description - Sunshine Mountain Lodge description

Sitting at the top of the gondola on Sunshine Mountain over the last few years this hotel has been changed from a nice 3 star property to a true luxury hotel in the best possible ski-in/ski-out hotel. A lift pass is included in the package and it will be well used as you can usually get a good 30mins extra skiing each morning before anyone else. A huge hot tub is the ideal way to relax and watch the sun set, while there is a choice of restaurants and bars to eat in.

Downtown Banff is made up of traditional timber and stone buildings that make up a simple grid system, meeting up on the main road – Banff Avenue - that’s been purposely positioned to open up a fabulous view of the Cascade Mountain. Unlike your average ski resort, winter is low season here (good news if you’re staying in town as this usually means better deals). Accommodation mostly comes in the form of classic lodges and inns, the cream of the crop being the Fairmont Springs Hotel. This ‘castle in the Ro...
Mt Norquay’s runs are sheltered by trees - head up on the Cascade chair for wide and easy-going greens like Temptation and Speculation. Intermediates can take the Mystic Express to a number of blues like Bruno’s gully, where you have the opportunity to dabble in a bit of powder. The North American Chair serves some exhilarating black diamonds (don’t miss the bumps on the Memorial Bowl) and a double diamond - Lone Pine. If you’ve been skiing elsewhere in the day, return to Norquay in time for the night skiing...
The whole area is known for its laid back après and friendly locals. In Norquay, the Cascade Lodge has a fabulous sun terrace - you could head inside to the Kika Café for a warming cuppa but make sure you stay out to watch the sunset at least once… After a day in Sunshine village, grab a quick eat at the Burger Shack or go fine dining at The Eagle’s Nest (the fantastic Alberta beef is their specialty). At the base of Lake Louise, Kokanee Kabin often has live music and even sells Starbucks Coffee. Anothe...

"Sunshine Mountain Lodge"

I think it’s one of the nicer hotels it Banff. The hotel sits mid mountain rather than right in the town. I would recommend the west wing which is the new section and has newer furnishings and is more quieter out there. You can ski almost to the back door to the west wing because of the way it is situated. For more space my room advice is to pick the Loft rooms which have a murphy bed which folds out from the wall and an upstairs mezzanine which gives a bit more space.
