We’ve got champagne powder, and the real deal – Veuve Cliquot Champagne. Paired with a plate of freshly-shucked West Coast oysters, relax and enjoy the rays on an outdoor patio with music provided by live bands, skiing and boarding take a back seat to the party time atmosphere on the hill.

This is Sunshine Village in spring from music to fun shenanigans on skis and boards. And you’re going to want to be here.

Your Sunshine Spring Season Pass gives you a chance to visit the home of Canada’s Best Spring Skiing for up to 66 days.

“It’s a celebration of spring skiing and all that goes with that — spending time with your friends, drinks on the patio and, of course, live local music,” says Sunshine's Lindsay Gallagher.

The skiing is still great, even epic, if the mountains get some well-timed dumps of snow. And the weather is usually warm so forget the down jackets — it’s time for T-shirts and yes, even bikinis.

Casey Bouius, technical director of the Ski and Snowboard School, describes the conditions as “classic Sunshine skiing and boarding — lots of March powder and warm temperatures.” So great are the conditions that “a few of Canada’s ski teams will be back this spring, including Alpine Canada’s men’s and women’s downhill team, ski cross team and kids trying out for Alpine Canada’s Development Team.”

For the rest of us, weekends in the spring are loaded with fun events — both on and off the slopes.

In between races and runs, Coors Light Beer Garden will compete with the Veuve Cliquot snow bar for your attention. Bands will be rocking, dishing out music during weekends only. Called Snowchella — the spring concert series features a line-up of bands every weekend between April 16 and closing day.


There are plenty of spring events being held throughout the spring.

“Snowchella came out of our Spring Concert Series which Sunshine has been hosting for many years, this year, Coors Light is the sponsor” says Gallagher. “We wanted to bring that festival vibe to the resort and encourage guests to sit back and enjoy live music while also taking in the stunning Rocky Mountain views.”
