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.

Visitor Reviews of Lake Louise
Esmonde Holowaty from Canada writes:
Amazing ski hill! Lots of amazing runs for every level of expertise. Also, the view from the top of the new Summit chair is a must see. Staff are very friendly. Just an approximate 5 min drive from Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. An absolute must experience.
