Majestic peaks, vast forests, abundant wildlife and, during ski season, powder that’s knee-deep. For skiers and snowboarders it doesn’t get much better than this.
This hamlet in Banff National Park lies at 1,540 metres. It’s just 50km or so from the town of Banff along the Trans-Canada Highway. There are more than 4,000 skiable acres and almost 140 named runs, making Lake Louise one of North America’s largest ski areas.
One of the best things about this ski resort is its layout. Families and groups of mixed ability taking cheap flights to Lake Louise will be able to ski together. From every chair there are beginner, intermediate and expert runs. This year-round wonderland offers it all – downhill skiing and snowboarding and several mountain trails.
The lake itself, sparkling turquoise green water against the Victoria Glacier, is one of the most photographed and beloved scenes in the Canadian Rockies.
