Canmore, Kananaskis Country, Canadian Rockies

Skiing & Snowboarding, Ski Hills and Ski Resorts


A 40-minute drive from Canmore in beautiful Kananaskis Country, Nakiska offers a great mix of runs, with family cruisers, amazing glades, and steep corduroy runs to race down (evoking the 1988 Olympics, perhaps - Nakiska hosted the downhill events).

The Homesteader half-pipe is open right from day one every year, and the Elbow terrain park proves highly popular with skiers and boarders alike.

Sunshine Village

Only twenty minutes from Canmore, the Sunshine high-speed gondola whisks skiers up to the village at 7,000 feet. From there, numerous high-speed quads spread out all over the area - most above treeline for beautiful views and wide-open cruising.

Sunshine is renowned for its all-natural snowfall - located on the Continental Divide, the resort gets over 10 m (33 feet) of snow every year.

There's something for everyone, with 22% green, 31% blue, 42% black, and 5% double black. The famous Delirium Dive provides added thrills for those with shovels and peeps. Snowboarders rave about the terrain park and halfpipe, as well as powder stashes too numerous to count.

Sunshine offers the only on-hill accommodation in the national parks.
