    I would rate this mountain 2.5 stars. Best thing going for it is its proximity to Calgary. The boarding is ok. More of a skiers hill as there is a lot of flat spots. For us boarders that means unbinding and doing the old one leg skate along. Powder is good on its day - which is seldom. I prefer to drive the extra 45 minutes and go to Lake Louise.. Well worth it. Even though LL does have more ice, even on powdery days - especially ski out. Fernie is the best, but that's ages away. Bottom line is don't go to this mountain unless you are a skier or...Read More

    Many people have a personal vendetta against this hill, for whatever reasons. If you look at this hill solely for what it is, a ski resort, it's not too bad. It's close to Calgary, gets good snow, and has a wide variety of terrain. However, it's not very steep for the most part and it is quite easy to ride pretty much any trail, if that's what you are into. The gondola ride is annoying, especially when it breaks down and you end up waiting in line, wishing you had gone to another hill... but when you really boil it down, it takes about the same...Read More

    I really like the hill, Ive been going here for years with my family and really enjoy it. I prefer it to lake louise as I find it to be less icy. I was kind of disappointed when we went there last week they charged full price and goats eye and angel weren't even open. Thats literally 3/4 of the mountain not opened and they charge you full price!

It's close to Calgary, gets good snow, and has a wide variety of terrain. However, it's not very steep for the most part and it is quite easy to ride pretty much any trail, if that's what you are into. The gondola ride is annoying, especially when it breaks down and you end up waiting in line, wishing you had gone to another hill... but when you really boil it down, it takes about the same amount of time to get to either hill when Sunshine isn't having Gondy issues... Tourists show up by the bus load and can make for a mid morning rush at the lifts, but if you get there early you can usually get some decent runs in before the snow gets tracked out. If you are having an issue with the flats, might I suggest building some confidence and gaining some speed? Honestly, there are only two spots where I have problems if it's a powder day, but when riding the groomers and using speed I can get up all the berms. The hill up the road has a much worse flat spot on the back side and there aren't any steeps to gain speed for it, so Sunshine wins on the flatness. I won't say it's my fav hill, but all in all you'll have a good time, just as you would at any other hill. How can you not? But I would suggest you bring your own lunch... overpriced and not very good.
