Lake Louise Ski Holidays
Voted the Best Ski Resort in Canada in the prestigious World Ski Awards 2013, Lake Louise is located in the heart of Banff National Park amidst some of the world's most spectacular scenery.
Our Lake Louise ski hotels are located around 5-10 minutes from the base area and there's a regular free ski shuttle. At the luxury hotel end, we'd highly recommend the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise which offers superb amenities and service, plus jaw-dropping views across the frozen Lake Louise to the Victoria Glacier. If you're looking for a lower cost hotel option, the Lake Louise Inn is a great value option slightly closer to the Lake Louise ski area.
Skiing in Lake Louise
Beginners and Intermediates can enjoy the freedom of the whole of Canada’s largest single mountain. This is a great resort to explore safe in the knowledge that there is always an easy way down, but also plenty of steeper, more challenging routes on tap for adrenaline seekers.
Experts should head to the back bowls, home to 2500 acres of skiable terrain – this is where the powder hunters will seek their fresh tracks. The slopes are remarkably quiet, chairs fast and lift queues a rarity.
Freestylers can enjoy one of the biggest terrain parks in Western Canada. The Showtime Terrain Park offers the usual jumps, rails and boxes and periodically throughout the season you can try out new tricks on the 'Bag Jump' air bag. Lake Louise also offers a world-class Snow Cross Course. Challenge your friends and family as you navigate your way down through cambered turns, berms, over gap jumps, drops and steep and flat sections. The course is typically open from December onwards.
An additional benefit of skiing Lake Louise is its proximity to Sunshine Village and Mount Norquay, aproximately 40 miles away. If you do wish to ski these areas, be sure to purchase a Tri Area Lift Ticket, the price includes transport costs and access to almost 8,000 acres of terrain.
We offer a full range of discounted Lake Louise lift tickets, ski & snowboard rentals and snow school lessons and we always recommend you book early for our very best prices.
