Lake Louise Ski Resort
The Lake Louise Ski Resort near Banff, Alberta is nestled in the Canadian Rockies. With most slopes at elevation of 7000 feet or more and it northern latitude the ski seasons starts earlier and ends later than most of its southern competition. The high altitude also allows for stunning views of the surrounding country side, and the best skiing North America has to offer including steep bowls and gullies as well as wide open snowfields.
Within 45 minutes of the resort are three mountains to choose from at ten minutes out lies the Ski Banff Norquay which deceptively small size of only 190 acres hides some amazing cruising courses and heart pounding mogul studded free falls. A little farther drive will deliver you to Sunshine Ski Resort, a nearly 3400 acre pristine destination offering a variety of long cruising courses. Finally, Lake Louise, the third mountain offers the largest Canadian ski resort with course ranging from beginner friendly bunny hills all the way to a challenging two black diamond.
While the skiing is what will bring you the variety of dining and non-skiing entertainment offered by the local town of Banff will keep you there, thoroughly enjoying your stay.
