Lake Louise Ski Resort
The giant of Canadian skiing continues its dominance as an outstanding ski resort. Professional skiers and snowboarders will return to the Lake Louise Ski Resort as it once again plays host to the FIS Snowboard Cross World Cup this season.
A considerable amount of resources have been invested to improve the on and off-mountain experience for boarders, including new fan guns and grooming machines.
A Lake Louise App will make it easier for riders to navigate around the four mountain faces, link up with friends on the slopes and receive info on deals and events as they are announced. This sits alongside enhanced snow reporting for the resort and a new website.
This season will also see a revamp of the hugely popular Torchlight Parade. Boarders can watch one of the most iconic sunsets in the world from atop the Lake Louise Ski Resort, while enjoying après and live music before riding down to the base via torchlight to continue the party with dinner and dancing. The First Tracks program returns for those who want exclusive lift access half an hour before the resort opens to the public, with two or three hours of professional instruction. Plus the bag jump will be more frequently available in the Showtime Terrain Park.
All of this in addition to four mountain faces of unbelievable terrain, awe-inspiring panoramic views and green and blue runs from every chair.
