Looking for something unique this Canada Day long weekend? Head to Banff Sunshine for a ski weekend!
We’re not even joking.
Banff Sunshine Village has announced that they are reopening for summer skiing from June 28 – July 3, 2022! (Weather and conditions, depending, of course.) So much snow this past winter, combined with a cooler spring, has left lots of snow on the resort.
“With all the snow still high in the Rockies, we asked ourselves, ‘What’s a resort to do?’ And we answered ‘LET’S OPEN FOR SUMMER SKIING & SNOWBOARDING!’” joked Kendra Scurfield, Director of Brand and Communications for the beloved Banff Resort. “We’re excited to open for some summer skiing and snowboarding once again. We’ll open Strawberry Express on Tuesday to skiers and snowboarders. Our goal is to open on June 28 and stay open (weather and conditions depending) until July 3. While we’re open for summer Strawberry Express will run daily from 9 am to 3 pm, and yes, we will have a small terrain park open.”
They are not sure exactly how many runs will be open for summer skiing, and they ask that people keep to the groomed trails, to protect the environmental integrity of the resort.
Of course, you can also do some summer sightseeing over the long weekend, too.
