Ferguson Hill Road is closed to vehicles in the winter. It's groomed for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowbiking (fat-tired bikes). This is a great way to access the top of the Cypress Hills Plateau or a fun way to descend. The last 100 metre descent to Elkwater Campground is challenging. Ferguson Hill Road connects with Plateau Trail and Murray Hill Road.
Spring Hill has been run by volunteers for over 20 years. We welcome downhill skiers and boarders and have a great beginner hill. For the cross-country skier we offer over 10 km of groomed trails. There are also plenty of other activities offered to the non-skier such as: ice fishing, snowshoeing and snow mobile trails. We have a small rental shop, offer ski lessons, chalet & concession. Open seasonally Saturday/Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard Resort boats the longest non-glacial ski season in the Canadian Rockies, receiving up to 9 m (30 ft) of snow in its mid-November to late-May season. Located just 15 minutes from the town of Banff and spread over 3,300 acres, the resort is also home to Canada’s first heated lift – the TeePee Town LX. In the center of the village at 2,195 m (7,200 ft) you will find the Sunshine Mountain Lodge, Banff’s only ski-in, ski-out hotel. Book your lift tickets, ski school and accommodation in advance.
