“They don't seem to ever change anything about this place!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Went snowboarding for the day at Louise on a Ski Trip out west and found it to be very disappointing. The place I guess is a money pit so they never seem to invest in anything new for the resort. Prices are exhorbitant at the lodges, the place is usually over run with people from Calgary, and the runs are typically pretty icey on the front side. On the plus side the views are great and absolutely stunning. One odd note is that there is no cell reception with Rogers by the Larch and Ptarmigan lifts...kind of odd for a big resort.

If you want to get to the top view at Lake Louise Ski Area, take the Gondola ride to the top, it was awesome

“Icy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Hated my day there. Icy runs polished smooth by huge amount of snowboarders . Too many people and NOBODY takes any notice of the SLOW SKIING areas. There should be stricter controls on speed and the ski Patrollers need to make their presence felt ! !

“Family Ski Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Love Louise, have come every year for past 5 years. There are so many ski runs, 2 days isn't enough. This year ski conditions were a bit disappointing. Pretty icy in many spots and they need a bunch more snow. No fault of the hill, they appear to be making snow all over the mountain. Skied all lifts and runs, but focused on Top of the World as this area seemed to have best snow conditions and not many people up top. Great couple of days, even with less than great snow conditions.

The lodge could use more seating, each day we struggled to get a place to sit and eat. People seem to stake out tables at the beginning of the day and splay their belongings all over the tables and chairs to claim their place.

“It was exciting, but not the best place for beginning skiers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We are amateur skiers and on the day we visited, the runs were all a little icy. It was still enjoyable, but a very big and complex mountain. It is not particularly good for visiting with a young family, as it is hard to meet up with all the different mountain areas. For advanced skiers, this hill would be amazing.
