“Excellent Skiing & Snowboarding Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Lake Louise was fantastic as a resort with plenty of variation in the level of runs. We had a party of 8 with different abilities and a variety of skiers and snowboarders and there was something for everyone. If you want a single lesson a good tip is to arrange to go on the first bus as you get a special deal and are first on the slope for the day. It worked out around $150 cheaper than getting a lesson during the day. Buses were regular. Probably my only complaint would be that some of the runs are very steep in parts and were higher than actually graded in Europe. This did prove tricky for beginners initially. If all fails take of your skis....get on your but and carry your skis until you are ready to go again. :-)

“Best Banff Ski Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Great ski mountain with the big vertical drop that only the Rockies can create. Skiing during Spring Break as a great time with sunshine and awesome views. We will definitely return to ski again another year.

“I would like to go back annually for the rest of my life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

Lake Louise ski resort is well run with world class facilities and an international staff. And it is spectacular, terrifying and revitalizing. I skied on both sides of the mountain. It was way beyond my skill level but when I stopped to just look over to the Chateau Lake Louise it was worth every effort. The air is thin at the top but by day two I was already feeling more accilimatized. Go.

“Great staff really make this perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

Yes great skiing, well prepared runs, easy access lifts, etc but what really sets this above the competition is the staff. We had 2 private instructors booked (one for us and I be for the kids who were first timers) and both were excellent (Kyle and Laura).

Hiring the gear was simple and plenty of help and advice on fitting.

We booked directly via email from the UK before a felling and everything was as expected.

Biggest problem is we only want to ski here now :-)

“Excellent staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Aside from the great resort and ski hill, I found all the staff at every level to be very professional, friendly and helpful. This also applies to their "ski friend" programme. They were awesome.

I can say from experience at another ski hill where I found the staff to have less than a "sunny" disposition, that attitude has a big impact on enjoyment.

Congrats and thanks to all the staff.
