Ski holidays in Lake Louise

Huge ski area, renowned as one of the world’s most beautiful settings

With almost 140 trails and extensive off-piste, Lake Louise has the biggest international cachet of Banff’s “Big 3” resorts (Lake Louise, Sunshine Village and Mt Norquay). Forty minutes from Banff, Lake Louise offers peace and tranquillity in one of the world’s most spectacular ski settings, with unspoilt views of magnificent peaks, glaciers and the iconic lake. From the Top of the World Express chair , the view along the Bow Valley is one of almost unsurpassed grandeur, with an unbroken chain of towering peaks with powerful names including Eiffel, Pinnacle and Babel, interspersed with hanging blue glaciers, and green valley floors. Lake Louise’s home ski area is the largest of the Canadian Rockies with some wonderful tree lined pistes as well as acres of open bowls. The Tri-area lift pass also covers extensive skiing in nearby Sunshine Village and Norquay. Just a handful of hotels and shops make up Lake Louise village, making it ideal for a peaceful getaway.
