Lake Louise Ski Area information
The largest of the Big Three resorts is Lake Louise, offering a humongous 1699 hectares of skiable land divided between 139 runs. It’s great for families, with a good spread of beginner-rated (25%) runs on the Front Side/South Face (especially around the base area), along with plenty of intermediate-rated (45%) runs. The longest (8km) is on the Larch Face.
Lake Louise has plenty of powder and off-piste skiing for advanced skiers, too, as well as a snowboard park and tube rides. However, its average snowfall is only around half that of Sunshine Village, meaning that snow machines are often used to supplement the natural snowpack.
The lodge is well equipped; take a break on the patio of the Bear's Den Smokehouse and enjoy a view of the runs.
