Lake Louise Introduction

Lake Louise is a superb resort located in the Banff National Park that offers some of the best down hill skiing in the country. The view down to the lake from the mountains is beyond compare with truly breathtaking scenery. The nearest town, Jasper, is three hours away so visitors are far away from civilisation and can enjoy nature and its abundant wildlife.

The rugged mountain scenery of the Rockies, the pine-clad lower slopes and two hundred kilometres of pistes all combine to attract skiers from all over the world. Lying at an altitude of over sixteen hundred metres and with the highest skiing at almost three thousand metres, Lake Louise offers good snow cover throughout the season. With terrain to suit all levels of skiing and snowboarding expertise, Lake Louise is a popular resort. The tri-pass lift pass also gives access to the Banff ski area. Ski schools offer tuition from the age of five. Although there is a crèche for babies, there is no non-skiing childcare provision for older children. A Lake Louise ski holiday offers great conditions in dramatic scenery, comfortable accommodation and a relaxed nightlife.
