Sunshine Village's terrain spreads across three mountains; Goats Eye, Lookout Mountain and Mount Standish. Goat’s Eye contains mostly expert terrain with challenging steeps, moguls and some tree glades. Lookout Mountain is home to some expert terrain towards the top with more intermediate and beginner trails at lower elevations. Mount Standish is predominately beginner terrain but contains some advanced terrain worth checking out.

The famous Delirium Dive is an expert's only area that requires avalanche equipment to enter. Delirium Dive is truly for the expert skier and some lines end with mandatory cliff drops. This area is considered to be some of the most extreme lift accessed in-bounds terrain in the world.
