We went skiing at Louise with the family on New Years day. Got to the hill around 8:45 and there was no one there!!! Everyone must have been sleeping off the party from the night before! This is the second time we have skied here and found that this time was the best by far. The day was sunny and it was very quiet. There were a few icy patches here and there but it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. We skied the front main face for the first part of the morning and then skied the back in the afternoon. Went with the kids (11 and 13) and the whole family was able to ski together the whole day. The youngest is strictly on green runs and he was able to go everywhere with us, he just took his time. He really liked the chair on the main face. The runs were a little easier here than from the gondola. There was a lot of room for eating lunch and getting a table was not an issue. We never buy lunch at these places. Always just bring our own and if you get there early enough, you can leave your lunch in your car and then just go out and get it later. Friends of ours leave their lunch backpack in the lodge and have never had a problem with that. It's always there when they need it. The bunny hill is probably the best I've seen. They have changed it now from a t-bar to a magic carpet. Much easier for the beginner skier. The greens are more challenging then I thought they would be but you just have to take your time on them. We really enjoyed our time there and will definitely go back again!
