Hot Spot for Intermediate Skiers at Banff National Park

Ranking among the biggest ski resorts in North America with over 4.200 acres of skiable terrain, Lake Louise is suited to all levels, from terrified beginners to intrepid powder hounds. The Sunny Learning Area is your kids' go-to. Conveniently located right next to the Day Care Center, which is definitely a plus for families, ski novices will find three carpet lifts. Moreover, there is a green run from each of the chairs making for easy ways down from the top.

Apart from the huge amount of designated green runs distributed all over the ski resort, Lake Louise is a paradise for intermediates and experts, as almost half of the runs are classified as intermediate and expert slopes are ranging from comfortably steep single diamonds to very challenging double diamonds. What's also not to miss are Lake Louise's backcountry skiing opportunities and the FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup run – both perfectly suited for adrenaline junkies who seek powder and speed.

For skiers inspired by the Olympic sport of ski cross, the Showtime Terrain Park features progressive lines for super newbies and extreme athletes alike with ramps, jumps and rails to show off. The impressive park is found on the lower slopes and is one of the largest terrain parks in Western Canada.

In all other categories, Banff National Park's largest ski area also scores outstandingly well. However, in regard of lift modernity skiers will have to lower their sights: A platter lift, a gondola, and some 3-person chairlifts or 4-person chairlifts will get you up to the summit. Après-Ski is another thing playing a rather minor role in Lake Louise. There is only very little choice when it comes to nightlife and bar options.
