Things to See in Alberta Lake Louise Ski Resort – Lake Louise

Alberta is home to several major ski resorts, but Lake Louise is the largest and arguably the most beautiful.  4,200 acres of skiable terrain await every level of ability, and the hill offers free mountain tours to make sure visitors get the most out of their stay.  

For non-skiers who still want to take in spectacular views of Lake Louise and Victoria Glacier, the gondola is available to whisk visitors to the top for some of the best sights in the Rockies.  The mountain is also the only Canadian stop on the FIS Ski World Cup circuit and during this time the best skiers in the world can be found hurtling down the slopes.
