And after a day spent hiking or skiing in the fresh mountain air, you’ll appreciate an added comfort – hot showers! Mealtime is always an event – you’ll delight in hearty, home-cooked meals and fresh-from-the-oven baked goods – no one ever leaves Sundance hungry!

A 16 km ski away from the mountain town of Banff, and just 10 km from the Sunshine turn off. The wide, well-sheltered trail leads you along the tree-lined valley of the Sundance Range, and is considered easy to moderate for cross country ski enthusiasts. Your overnight stay will include a 10 mile trek south of Banff, to the Lodge. Overnight accommodations include breakfast, lunch, dinner, and all your bedding. Awesome place to get away with your family or friends!
