Just min­utes from the vil­lage of Lake Louise, the ski re­sort is known for its va­ri­ety of ter­rain from gen­tle slopes and long cruis­ing runs, to glades, chutes, and some of the Cana­dian Rock­ies’ most ex­cit­ing and wide open bowls. As well as re­ceiv­ing #1 Ski Re­sort in Canada at the pres­ti­gious 2017 World Ski Awards, Lake Louise has also been named one of the top three freestyle re­sorts in the world. When vis­it­ing Lake Louise Ski Re­sort, be sure to bring your cam­era! The spec­tac­u­lar views of moun­tains, glaciers, lakes, and forests are truly unique and be­fit­ting of Canada’s first Na­tional Park.
