This Tuesday (June 28), Banff Sunshine Village will be welcoming skiers and snowboarders back to the slopes for summer skiing and riding. With over 900 cm of Canada’s Best Snow landing on the slopes of Banff Sunshine Village this past ski and snowboard season, the Banff resort found itself with a surplus of snow this June – as the resort was scheduled to open for summer sightseeing.
“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,” continues Scurfield.
