“so different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2015

having worked a season at Sunshine Village, it was good to go back in the summer and see it with no snow. Wow! Absolutely stunning. The terrain is so different! The walk is quite easy after the bus ride up the access road (Banff Ave Ski Out for anyone who has been there in winter). Up to Bruno's (top level of trappers) is open and serving easy food and some beverages for when you are done/before you head out. The track is easy and well sign posted. The wildflowers are beautiful. Definitely worth a day trip!

“amazing views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2015

expected crowds when we arrived at the parking area, but the mountain is expansive and opens up to three separate areas at the top, yielding wide open runs and short lift lines. Amazing views of the areas gorgeous peaks in all directions.
