Resort Info

Resort Info

The small village of Lake Louise is quieter and more intimate than neighbouring Banff and with just a five minute drive to its ski hill and glorious scenery, characteristic of the Canadian Rockies, it is also one of the most fabulous places to ski and stay. Mt. Norquay at Banff and Banff Sunshine ski areas are also within easy travel, and are included on the same lift ticket as Lake Louise.

There is plenty on offer for all levels of skier and boarder especially for the more advanced intermediates and experts.

Lake Louise Ski Resort is renowned for its back bowls, huge open spaces of steep and deep terrain, but its front-side and larch areas are impressive too, both with plenty of interesting tree-lined slopes and offering stunning views across the valley to the lake itself and mountains beyond. At 4,680 acres it is one of the largest ski areas in North America and certainly one of the most spectacular.

Newly opened in 2020 is the Summit Chair servicing the West Bowl for 480 acres of new terrain. With a 17 zones to explore this is an exciting addition to the resort.

A visit to Lake Louise Ski Resort can be easily combined with Kicking Horse or Jasper, as well as being a great twin centre stay with Banff. You can even include a heli-skiing trip, with several heli centres within a couple of hours drive, offering plenty of choices for your Lake Louise ski holiday.

Set against the stunning backdrop of Victoria Glacier is one of the most photographed sights in the Canadian Rockies – lovely Lake Louise, where the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise overlooks this postcard pretty setting. The village of Lake Louise is small and compact and home to a handful of hotels, all of which are just a short drive to the ski hill. You’ll also find restaurants, bakeries, delis and a grocery store

There are plenty of different ways to enjoy the majestic scenery, including dog-sledding, skating, ice-climbing snowshoeing and tobogganing. Tubing is also available at the Sunny Tube Park at the base of Lake Louise mountain. A popular activity for couples is to take a horse-drawn sleigh ride round the frozen lake with a fireside stop, champagne, chocolates and a buffalo robe to help keep warm under the expansive starry skies. Larger sleighs are also available for family tours during the daytime and evening.

"Whenever we travel to Canada we use Frontier Ski"

"We have booked with Frontier Ski for a number of years and would recommend them to anyone travelling to Canada. I am sure you offer excellent service to other destinations, but can only comment on where we have been.

We are a group who travel together but all need slightly different things - timings, airports, ski's etc. However we have always received exactly what we need and at a very good price.

Frontier Ski, have always managed to put together an excellent package for us, at very competitive prices.

Whenever we travel to Canada we use Frontier Ski as our default provider."
