No Real Après-Ski Scene

Après-Ski at Lake Louise really does not rival other ski resorts in Canada, as partying and nightlife does play a minor role here. With only very little choice, bars and nightlife options are nothing special. There is a well-known umbrella bar at Temple Lodge offering 360 degree views.

Keeping in mind that the après-ski scene is pretty limited, you will be happy to hear about the Whiskey Jack Lodge, which is located adjacent to the base area. Canadian bar atmosphere and delicious craft beers are what to expect from this venue. However, Whiskey Jack is no real go-to place for party animals. Kokanee Cabin at the base station of Glacier Express invites you to finger-licking good Canadian BBQs. The Whitehorn Lodge is another classic spot featuring both a cosy place to stay and drinks on the on-site sun deck.

If you'd like to top off a day on the slopes by hoisting a brew or two, the Outpost Pub and Explorer's Lounge are where to head to. Anyone who is looking for loud get-togethers or who is into partying, should think about taking the 45 min drive to Banff, which has a town of hangouts, large pubs with music acts and DJs.
