Ride Guide - Sunshine Village
If you've got what it takes, you will know the mekka of Canadian ski vacationers. That's what the Ride Guide Magazine experts thought, and so they took a close look at Sunshine Village.
Located at an altitude of 7087 feet, Sunshine Village is Canada's highest ski resort 107 runs extend all the way to neighboring province British Columbia. They include easy slopes running through the forest but also hell rides such as "Delirium Dive," which requires an avalanche transceiver, a shovel, excellent lungs and a fair deal of courage. Up you go, taking the Angel Lift, then the Divide Lift before you climb another 130 feet. Take a right and follow the Milky Way run. Want more extreme runs? There's the Silver City Extreme featuring steep bumps, slopes, and cliffs. Compared to Delirium Dive it is supposed to be a walk in the park. Dell Valley near Strawberry Lift, on the other hand, meets the needs of newbie skiers.
