Lake Louise Overview
Lake Louise is Canada’s giant, and one of North America's largest ski areas offering incredible varied terrain over 4 mountain faces. At Lake Louise there is more terrain to ski than you can do in a week!
The scenery is spectacular, with views right down the valley, across to Lake Louise itself in the distance, and over majestic snow-covered mountain peaks as far as the eye can see. You will be blown away by the sheer beauty and peaceful atmosphere surrounding the small resort town of Lake Louise. With only a handful of restaurants, shops and bars, you can enjoy a relaxing break away whilst mixed with some of the most thrilling skiing in the world - the perfect combination.
The resort is one of our favourite spots for families as the friendly atmosphere feels like a home from home. Plus from each lift on the mountain you can enjoy runs to suit every level of skier, so perfect for families to enjoy skiing together.
The snowfall at Lake Louise is out of this world and a powder snow heaven. That's why every year it is home to the Men's and Women's World Cup downhill ski races. A spectacular time to be in the buzzing village!
The Lake Louise Ski Area is part of Banff National Park’s ‘Big 3’, and on one lift ticket you can enjoy three incredible mountains; The Lake Louise Ski Area, Mt Norquay (35mins drive) and Sunshine Village (25mins drive). So you can choose to visit one of the other two mountains if you fancy a change of scenery or a new challenge.
