About Lake Louise
Lake Louise itself is pretty small, but it does have a good selection of accommodation and restaurants – most are good value-for-money. If your budget is bigger, you can always stay at the world-famous Chateau Lake Louise, which is also a lovely spot to drop in for lunch during your ski day. Après-ski is distinctly North American, with line-dancing and Country music dominating the bar life. Alternatively, you can choose to stay 60km away in Banff itself. Banff, a significantly larger town is for many a better choice as a base resort, offering you closer access to Sunshine Village and Mount Norquay/Mystic Ridge ski areas and a wider choice of lodging and dining options.
A tri-area ski pass covers your skiing in Lake Louise, Sunshine Village and Mount Norquay. This pass also includes free access to the regular and efficient shuttle bus service linking these ski areas with the lodging in Lake Louise and Banff.
If you visit, you will quickly understand why, along with Whistler, most Europeans head for Lake Louise. It has great skiing, is incredibly user-friendly, the snow is excellent and it's all very reasonably priced.
