Winner

Banff Sunshine Village

With trails winding down three mountains across 3,300 acres of accessible terrain, Banff Sunshine Village offers a big playground for skiers and snowboards to feel the rush of the slopes. The resort also operates the Sunshine Mountain Lodge, a luxury ski-in, ski-out hotel, and there are a wide range of lessons, 23 ski lifts (including Canada’s only heated one) and a rental shop. The site’s seven-month ski season is a major draw for visitors, and its unique location on the Continental Divide often means lots of fresh powder.
