“Unlucky”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

I love lake louise for skiing, though in summer they run the gondola to watch the Grizzlys on the hill eating to get ready for hibernation. It is luck really, as a group of my friends and I took it in early september and didn't see one Grizzly. In saying that it is a fantastic area to see this kind of wildlife, Lake Louise is known for its black/ grizzly bears. Though with wildlife, you have to remember it is all chance anyway, Banff national Park is not a zoo. If you are planning to go however, you can check the Lake Louise website to get an update on bear sightings up the hill.

“Went during Winter when its is a ski lift.”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

Firstly the picture is of the chair lift and that scared the s&#t out of us. Being from Australia and never seeing snow we were rushed on the chair lift with all the "pro" skiers and wern't told we had to pull the bar down to secure us. We were with our 14 yr old daughter so we were a little worried. The Gondola is a great view and the staff at the top could not have been more lovely or helpful, pointing us in the direction of the best views and giving us hand warmers when it got to cold.

“WOW--What Views!”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

My wife and I highly recommend taking the gondola ride to the top of Lake Louise. The views on top were spectacular. We were fortunate to have a very clear day, and we could see for miles.

“Lake Louise Lifts”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

Great view and picture opportunities all along. Don't expect to see the grizzles like they say. Very rare. Worth the trip.
