Awesome day.(Sunday) Everyone's complaining about no snow, I don't know why. We had a sick day, little lines, lots of runs. Even untouched stuff in a lot of places, just have to open your eyes.

Bluebird day yesterday @ Sunshine. Unfortunately, that was only good part of the day. Very hard packed (it felt like ice but not quite), having said that, there was lots of icy spots all over the mountain. Lots of people! lift lines at every chair. 
Would have gone to the backcountry, but Parks Canada issued red alert conditions. 
Pray for snow! the hill needs it bad!!!!

The snow quality was good. Nice groomed runs, not too compacted. Good coverage. Temperatures were a little warm, which doesn't bode well. A good day.

Bluebird day. Wind packed. Softened up a bit with the sun. Needs a lot more snow as there are lots of bare spots. Will be ugly after this gets ski'd off. Not a lot of people today so it was pretty good

The snow out there was amazing!! Well needed at this hill. Both the front and backside trees had some good honeypots. Beware the covered rocks and hazards I. Some areas.

Great coverage. Mostly boot-top, knee deep between the bumps and in the trees.

Louise has seen better snow. Still a good ski however the hill is covered in patches of ice and uncovered areas. Entire larch area is no good. This picture was from yesterday morning.

a good day. Standish is no good still too rocky but angel and divide wrecks great with packed powder. There is nice soft deep powder on the divide side of Strawberry and I don't know why more people don't ride it. Wawa has some soft snow but it is very moguly. All in all a solid day

New Years Day 2014. Lots of hard packed snow, some bare icy patches. Beautiful blue skies (for an hour or so), slopes not at all busy, had a great day.

Nice day for a few groomers. Decent early season coverage on what's open but like all AB hills this time of year, could use a good few dumps to get the season truly started.

Was perfect weather conditions but definitely in need of more snow. I suggest avoiding goats eye still lots exposed. Other than that excellent early season conditions. No complaints.

Not as much powder as I had hoped considering the amount of snow during the week but still an awesome day. Goats eye still needs snow. very icy and hard.

Front side was well groomed with good amount of snow. Larch was ungroomed as far as I could tell but still decent if you enjoy a challenge. Excellent day of boarding.

Sunday was crazy windy. 70km/hr winds. Snow drifts were fun with light fluffy snow. Lots of serious hard pack patches.

Today was a great day for Sunshine! Snow fell all day, visibility was bad up at high elevations but everywhere else was good.

Don't just be a sour critic. If you actually read the posts saying what runs are terrible (on any hill, not just sunshine) then stay away from that area. If your ski ability is not good enough to avoid that area, don't bother going that day. Don't keep posting about your terrible experience on something a smart skier/boarder already knows. It's the beginning of the season so you are going to hit rocks and roots no matter the resort. Make the best of your day.
