Visitor Reviews of Lake Louise

Rob Filyk from Canada writes:

This isn't going to be short so just listen up.
Put LL on your bucket list but allow yourself at least 2-3 days to fully take it in. I love this area- all of it: Mount Whitehorn, the backside, the Summit and the Eagle area on the frontside. Chair 11 on Larch, Paradise Bowl and ER3, Outer Limits and Whitehorn 1 thru whatever.
I love the vibe of the place, and the international flavour, and the best views of any mountain anywhere.
Yes, the crowds can descend on the area at peak holiday times and on some weekends, but usually if you get out there a little early and get over to the backside or ski up top on the front it's not a problem. You can get in several epic powder runs on a snow day before most people have finished breakfast.

Where else do Grizzly Bears inhabit an area year round, yet lay undisturbed maybe 200 meters from where you can find an untracked line. No-one is paying me to write this, as I am just a fanatical local skier like thousands of others that appreciate the thrill of steep terrain and Rocky Mountain powder.

Excellent ski patrol, exceptional avalanche experts and great grooming here too if you just want high-speed or relaxed cruising.

I have been skiing here for 40 years and will do so until I can no longer stand. This mountain will thrill the average day tripper, and surprise the hard-core free-skier. Just when you think you've skied every line one could open up, even for just a few hours, like ER3 did for a few hours until choke points were sketchy after major fresh last year. It will and can blow your mind- whether you ride or ski.
Amazing and unique and thrilling with lots of slack country and hidden routes if you explore and get adventurous in-bounds. Recent glading on Ptarmigan and Paradise has opened more lines to extend the powder window on a snow day as well.
Like many epic areas in AB and BC, terrain that isn't even marked here would be roped off in other places, so do proceed with caution unless you know what you are dealing with below, especially on the extreme terrain. Very, very legit with cliffs and drops and chutes in many places.

Obviously, it's Nov and I am looking forward to another great season. All I can tell you is that you should visit this area but take it in with an explorer's frame of mind and you will just revel in the beauty, and the thrill of it all.
