Banff Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard Resort has long been famed for being the home of Canada’s Best Snow, but now we’re making heat for also being the home of the hottest chair in the Rockies, Teepee Town LX. The Luxury Express, Teepee Town LX lift, is located on Lookout Mountain. The chair features heated seats, wind protecting orange bubbles, footrests, and a base area entertainment system.
Our new heated express has the power to move as many as 1,200 skiers and riders up the mountain per hour. It travels at a top speed of 5.08 meters per second; the high speed express gets skiers to the top of the mountain in less than 5 minutes. The beauty of Teepee Town LX is that it allows skiers and snowboarders to spend more time getting turns on the mountain and less time warming up in the lodge.
“Sunshine is committed to delivering exceptional guest experiences and this addition to the resort will clearly demonstrate our focus on providing comfort and value to our guests,” says Dave Riley, chief operating officer for Sunshine Village.
Banff Sunshine Village has a mission is to inspire all guests of the resort to become raving fans of the Canadian Rockies. Throughout the years, the resort has consistently reinvested in the mountain to build Canada’s most modern lifts system. With the arrival of Teepee Town LX, Banff Sunshine Village now has the most innovative and efficient lift system in the country.
Sunshine Village boasts the longest non-glacial ski season in Canada, open from November until mid-May each ski season and offers a broad range of terrain for skiers and riders, an award-winning ski and snowboard school, six on-mountain restaurants, three retail shops and more.
