Sunshine Village is famous for its mild temperatures during mid to late-season. In late April and May, you can ski or snowboard in a T-shirt. Throughout the majority of the season, temperatures remain moderately below freezing. However, early season conditions can be quite cold, so it’s important to dress for the temperatures.
