Lake Louise Ski Area in the Canadian Rockies: Bunny Slopes, Black Diamond Thrills and Everything in Between

The Lake Louise Ski Area is perhaps the most expansive of the Big 3 ski resorts in Banff National Park, making the village of Lake Louise, Alberta, a prime destination when the snow falls. The resort comprises 4,200 acres of alpine skiing above the village (which lies just to the southwest), spread across the southern slopes of the Merlin Ridge of the Slate Range in the Canadian Rockies, surrounded by Mount Richardson, Ptarmigan Peak, Pika Peak and Redoubt Mountain.

The vertical drop of the runs from the highest point is 991 meters; the longest run is 8 kilometers – there is more terrain here than one could ski in a week, according to the resort’s operators.
