It’s the wilderness around Lake Louise that our guests talk about the most, and really defines the area. Just a handful of shops and hotels made up Lake Louise village, making it perfect for a peaceful getaway.
If you’re looking for lots of mileage on the slopes, this is a great spot to stay as the local area alone has over 4,200 acres of varied terrain spread across four mountain faces– it’s one of the largest in North America. The area is known for its variety, from gentle slopes and long cruisy runs, to glades and some of the Canadian Rockies most thrilling, wide open bowls. 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 scattered with hanging blue glaciers, and green valley floors. This place is a photographers dream.
The triple area SkiBig3 lift pass covers Lake Louise, and two additional distinctive ski areas (Mount Norquay and Banff Sunshine Village. A regular and free ski bus service, included with your pre-booked lift pass, operates between all three ski areas.
