Welcome to Lake Louise Ski Resort

A peaceful getaway with access to over 7000 acres of incredible runs across Canada’s Big 3 ski areas. Welcome to Lake Louise. Prepare to be bowled over by striking views of Banff’s jagged mountain peaks, alpine forests and the frozen turquoise waters of Lake Louise. Learning to ski in Lake Louise is simply magic. And there are some super nice green and blue pistes running from the top of the mountain all the way back to the resort. If you’re more experienced, head over to the vast back bowls with challenging chutes. Or why not ski all of the Big 3 ski areas - a free beer awaits those who conquer it. Who’s in?

Best time to ski in Lake Louise

The snow in Lake Louise is usually tip-top from November to the end of May, but for the best snow, late February to early March is an ace time to visit. Canada can get super cold in winter, so wrap up warm. But if sub-zero temperatures are a ski tip too far for you, clip in during March or April when things start to warm up. Bringing the kids? Families will love the local festivities in nearby Banff over the Christmas holidays. And the Banff SnowDays Festival in January is jam-packed with activities, including skijoring shows, family play zones, and snow sculpture trails.

Things to do in Lake Louise

The star of the show away from the slopes has to be Lake Louise itself. Frozen throughout the winter and surrounded by towering snowy peaks, it takes centre stage in every photo. Gliding across the vast frosty lagoon on ice skates is the kind of bucket-list moment you’ll never forget. And sightings of elk and bighorn sheep on a hike around the shoreline aren’t uncommon. Back in the village, the apres-ski is laid-back, and the foodie scene is on point. Enjoy afternoon tea at the majestic Fairmont Chateau or stop on the mountain at the Whitehorn Bistro to indulge in gourmet burgers and gooey fondue.
