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.

Visitor Reviews of Lake Louise

Mike Johnson from Canada writes:

Always take the snowfall they report and divide by two. I've been burned too many times by their snow reports to take them seriously anymore.

If the hill does get a big dump of snow and it's a weekend, expect it to be skied off of the runs about an hour after the hill opens. The exception to this is on the backside of Whitehorn, which gets less traffic.

Otherwise, runs tend to be icy, food is overpriced, and it gets crowded and the lines long on weekends. If you get a big snowfall mid-week, you're in heaven. Big snowfalls don't happen that often compared to resorts like Castle Mountain or Revelstoke, however.
