[R448R, Sunshine Village] turns into a summer hiking wonderland of wildflower meadows and tiny lakes. White Mountain Adventures runs a shuttle service daily from Sunshine's parking lot up the winter ski out trail to the village area to reach hiking trails. Shuttles operate June 27 through September every hour. Reservations are not required, but are available online. Tickets ($26 CAD per adult, $15 CAD for children) can be purchased in the same ticket office as winter operations. Guided interpretive hikes are available daily, too.

Sunshine Village is preparing to replace the old fixed-grip triple Strawberry chairlift this summer. Skiers and riders will be greeted next winter by a new Doppelmayr detachable, high-speed quad straight from the Olympics.
