The best of Lake Louise

Snow Conditions – Guaranteed great snow conditions all winter, from December to April.
The Escapism – Compared to Banff, Lake Louise feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere, but with everything you need to be utterly content in a beautiful winter wonderland
The Lake – Appreciate the unspoilt natural beauty as you gaze across the crisp snowy frozen lake. It really is mesmerising, especially if you opt to snowshoe around it on a starry evening.

The Best Time to Ski Lake Louise

With slope aspects facing all points of the compass, there really isn’t a bad time to ski in Lake Louise. It’s even incredible in November if you get lucky with snow (although the slopes might not all be open). March gets consistent snowfall, and April gets the longest ski days but, suffice to say you won’t be disappointed.

Skiing and Boarding in Lake Louise

The ski area offers more than 11 square miles, or 4,200 acres, of striking, skiable terrain. The 3 mountain faces collect the best of the snow and caters well for all levels of skiers and snowboarders, offering beginner, intermediate and expert runs off of every lift. Canada’s largest snowmaking system lives here along with a large tree-line at the top of the mountain, ensuring that 65% of the ski terrain below it is well protected. Therefore, Lake Louise safeguards its ski area from a lack of snow as well as too much snow, giving brilliant skiing conditions as standard, whatever the weather. With some of the best Verticals in North America, skiers also have lengthier runs to take in all of that snow and jaw-dropping scenery.

Experts are kept busy with the endless chutes, glades, gullies and bowls and any levelled freestyle enthusiast will love the Telus Snowtime Park as it hosts three graded parks to involve everyone.  To top it off, the tourist office offers free ski guiding daily if you need showing around the numerous highlights.

Ski Accommodation in Lake Louise

Accommodation is located a few minutes down the road from the ski area, but convenience is the resort’s focus so you’ll barely wait for the shuttle bus and they stop at all the hotels, which are crammed with amenities to ensure your stay in this mountain retreat is as magical as possible.

Ski Hotels in Lake Louise

You’ll find similar facilities, room sizes and services at all the hotels in Lake Louise, the difference comes with the standards the hotels promise and their individual style. The Fairmont on the lakeshore really is a magical place to spend a few nights if you’re pushing the boat out, but the Lake Louise Inn is about as friendly a hotel as you hope for.

Apres Ski in Lake Louise

With many other activities on offer such as ice hiking, ice skating, snowshoeing, snow hiking, heli-skiing, cross-country skiing, sleigh riding and dog sledding and skiing in one of the other close by resorts, it’s fair to suggest that you won’t get bored here. This town is built to enjoy the great outdoors in some Spectacular settings and then curl up to the log fire after.
