Lake Louise has some of the finest mountain scenery and skiing for all abilities, and continues to be one of the top North American resorts for British skiers with over 4,200 skiable terrain over 4 mountains and a green run from every chair lift.
Accommodation is great value too because winter is classed as low season and you will find a fantastic choice of apartments/hotels to suit all tastes and budget! Sunshine Village is about 20 minutes away and there is a great shuttle service which runs regularly and this service also goes to Banff which is approx 40 minutes drive away. For holders of the tri-area lift pass, there is a free bus service. The Sunshine Village slopes are right on the Continental Divide, as a result they get an abundance of snow. Sunshine is great for all levels of skier; Lake Louise like Sunshine is great for all levels and the more confident should try the 'Men and Ladies' Downhill black runs.
Getting there: Lake Louise is approximately 2hours 30 minutes away from Calgary Airport.
