Ski Lake Louise
ski lake louise

As one of Canada's largest ski areas, Lake Louise offers skiers and boarders unlimited possibilities. With four mountain faces, 4200 skiable acres, 113 named trails and 5 quad chairs, 'the Lake' is hard to beat.

Lake Louise has it all, from gentle, perfectly groomed beginner runs to double black diamonds rated "the best super steeps in the country" (Ski Canada Magazine). Uniquely, there are green, blue and black runs down from every chair which allow beginners as well as intermediates and experts to enjoy the whole immense Louise experience.

With abundant natural snow, backed up by Canada's largest snowmaking system, Louise guarantees skiing from early November to mid May. The Lake's huge, wide open bowls which lay claim to some of the driest, lightest snow, are home to the Canadian Powder 8 Championships.

Lake Louise enjoys the honour of prestigous Gold Medals from Ski Magazine in Scenery, Terrain, Challenge and Value. Enjoy stunning panoramas from one of four spacious on-mountain lodges.
