What's it like at Lake Louise resort?

Lake Louise is located in the Rockies and has some of the most spectacular views from any chairlift in the world. Your pass will allow you to ski at Banff, Sunshine and Norquay so there is little reason to be bored. There is a really good mix of runs too, with many of them being marked as expert. Intermediates and beginners will not be disappointed at Lake Louise either. As for the snow record, Lake Louise is the envy of European resorts. The resort towns of Lake Louise and Banff are great too, although Banff is livelier, there is plenty to do. Food is good and portions large; just what you want. Try some local brews such as Grasshopper, one of the local micro-breweries. Just remember to tip well and wrap up well, oh and don't mess with the elks. They are big and have horns, you are small and do not.

Much overrated hill. Too much grooming. Most of the runs are groomed which make skiing very boring. The front side is only for beginners. Snow report is misleading at best. Don't waste your time on this hill. For my money Norquay has much better skiing, especially the runs serviced by the North America chair.
