Lake Louise Ski Resort
Lake Louise, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, and less than an hour from the town of Banff, is one of Canada’s most well-known resorts. From the slopes, majestic views stretch out over the Bow Valley and surrounding mountains and beyond to the palatialFairmont Chateau Lake Louise. This is a mountain for all skiers, from the die-hard extreme skiers to families coming here to learn the sport. With 4,200 acres of skiable terrain, the resort offers a mix of wide-open bowls, steeps, chutes, and plenty of groomed runs.
Lake Louise Ski Resort does not have on-site accommodation but does have fantastic day use facilities at the base, with restaurants serving tasty meals, as well as other on-mountain restaurants. Skiers can base themselves in the nearby village of Lake Louise or in the town of Banff.
