Great location and fantastic service. We are a family of 4 and the accommodations worked really well for us. The dinner pasta bar for the kids was just right! We had another family of 4 join us for the weekend and we all enjoyed the facilities - from the variety of food, chair lift access, hot tub and gathering room,...

Hadn't been back to the Sunshine Lodge for four years. Service was a bit spotty at times but was ok for the most part. Were out of Belgian waffles for 5 straight days, my 10 year old was disappointed. Wished the two restaurant menu's offered a bit more light fare or half sandwich options. Skiing was fantastic and the room...

This is a great spot to stay, the views are stunning and it's great waking up on the hill in the morning. The service from the time we booked until the time we checked out was very poor. They misinformed us as to the cost of lift tickets, check in service was disinterested, check out service was unhelpful. Couple that...

We just spent 3 nights and enjoyed very much. We stayed in the West Wing deluxe room with our 19 year old son. The beds, Murphy included, were very comfortable. Two of the 3 nights were discounted which made it much more affordable. We were thrilled to be able to ski in the Rockies and the convenience of the Lodge...

My partner and I stayed in the Eagle Suite for 2 nights! Our trip was magical!! The Manager Thjis de Lint was very kind and accommodating. He and Deidre MacEachern ensured our visit was one to remember! The room was very tidy each day and had a phenomenal view of the hill. We enjoyed a lovely lunch while watching others...

THtis resortbis always comfortable, friendly staff and a well groomed hill with a variety of terrain. When the day skiers leave and the hotel guests are the only ones at 7,200' it is very special indeed.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights and were happy about it. The location was perfect for skiing and you could ski for free any time as long as the chair lifts were open. There was limited choice for restaurants but since we only stayed for 2 nights, we enjoyed our meals. The staff were all friendly and helpful....

The best bit is that you really can ski in and ski out! Room a bit small and over heated had to wedge the balcony door open. Arrival staff at the creekside (Amy) do a great job and make you feel most welcome. Reception ready and waiting for us walking through the door, efficient and friendly. If you are going...

We liked the old menu in the restaurant better than the new one, plus the service was spotty at best.The skiing was great and the room was terrific so that made up for the food. Why so many Australians working at the lodge?

I really enjoyed my stay. The staff at the hotel were very pleasant and professional. I was only disappointed that you no longer serve bison burger and your soup (which I always looked forward to), is now a much smaller serving portion compared to last year. The skiing was fabulous!
