Voted #1 Ski Resort in Canada at the 2019 World Ski Awards.  Lake Louise is also   named one of the top three freestyle resorts in the world.  Located in the heart of historic Banff National Park, it boasts of spectacular scenery with terrain both vast and versatile.   With 4,200 skiable acres, 3,200 vertical feet, over four mountain faces, Lake Louise is one of the largest ski areas in North America.

Lone Star hasn’t been back to Lake Louise since 2016 so we are overdue!  Located minutes from the village of Lake Louise, the area allows for all levels of skiers to enjoy beginner, intermediate and expert runs from every lift. The terrain variety ranges from gentle slopes and long cruisers to chutes, glades and exciting and wide open bowls. 

There are 145 marked ski runs and back bowls with the longest run being almost 5 miles!  Feel the thrill that comes from exploring our unique layout of ski runs, with beginner, intermediate and expert routes from every chair.   Lake Louise has 25% beginner runs, 45% intermediate run and 30% advanced runs to fill skiers of all levels.  The 'Terrain Park' is also designed for snowboarders of all levels. Four full service day lodges are operational during winter.

Besides your skis, don’t forget your camera.  Lake Louise’s sightseeing gondola is open year round.  See breathtaking views in Canada’s first National Park of the mountains, glaciers, forests and lakes, even some wildlife glimpses are possible.  (Hey Boo-Boo, I got a pic-a-nic basket!). 

 

Enjoy activities such as dog-sledding, ice skating at the Chateau’s lake rink, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, tubing & tobogganing, and snowmobiling. How about an Ice Walk at nearby Johnston Canyon and climb a frozen waterfall?  Don’t panic! If you can climb a ladder you got this!
