Public Engagement on Sunshine Village Ski Area draft Long-Range Plan and Detailed Impact Assessment

We want to hear from you and all Canadians during the public review of the Sunshine Village Ski Area draft Long-Range Plan and Detailed Impact Assessment in Banff National Park.

Ecological integrity is the first priority in the management of Canada’s national parks. Parks Canada recognizes downhill skiing as a cornerstone of winter tourism in Banff National Park. Carefully planned and managed ski areas contribute to Parks Canada’s objectives of providing meaningful visitor experiences.

The Sunshine Village Ski Area has prepared their first Long-Range Plan, which details the ski area’s development plans for a period of five years. To assess environmental impacts of the direction contained in the draft Long-Range Plan, a Detailed Impact Assessment has been completed, which is Park Canada’s most comprehensive assessment process.

Parks Canada believes that land use and development in national parks should reflect the priorities and perspectives of Canadians and be open and transparent. In collaboration with the ski area, Parks Canada is currently seeking feedback from all Canadians on the Sunshine Village Ski Area draft Long-Range Plan and Detailed Impact Assessment. Whether you regularly visit the mountains, or simply have an interest in the management of Canada’s national parks, learn more about the plan and share your input at engage.skibanff.com.

Parks Canada values all input and participation in our land-use planning initiatives. Input will be used to inform the final versions of the Sunshine Village Ski Area Long-Range Plan and Detailed Impact Assessment.
