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

Christopher from Canada writes:

Alberta Rockies local. Obviously biased but I’ve been riding these local mountains for over 20 years. Granted lake louise doesn’t get the dumps the interior gets but fit and finish Lake Louise is one of the best overal resort experiences in North America. Long steep accessible runs are everywhere and if you’re lucky enough to ride here on even a 15-20cm day it will blow any other resort out of the water. If want to test your fitness in Alberta Rockies the lake is it. Can’t find the stat but I’ve been told 3 of the top 10 steepest inbound runs reside at Lake Louise. Only 9 lifts but they access nearly every skiable/rideable acre. Buy a local a beer and they’ll show you the goods. *unpopular opinion * Lake Louise is better than Whistler
