Great Snow Coverage

Lake Louise is no famous powder skiing destination, yet the snow that does fall comes early, stays late, is quite dry and supported by snowmaking that covers over 30 percent of the skiable acreage. The bottom line is that there will usually be abundant snow, which is one of the reasons for Lake Louise hosting the FIS Ski World Cup, being one of the select few that hold both the men's and ladies' events. Due to Lake Louise's excellent slope conditions and snow coverage, the races are scheduled quite early in the season.

Due to its great snow coverage, Lake Louise is your go-to for powder skiing and tree runs. The ski resort's back bowls are renowned as a skier's paradise with steep skiing in deep powder. It goes without saying that Lake Louise deserves to be awarded in this category due to its high elevation making winter to arrive early and to stay long.

Lake Louise is a winter wonderland full of glittering deep white snow. The fact that it is not dependent upon natural snow makes it a great destination for skiers with beginners among them who'd like to explore the lower mountain first. The only criticism here is that there could be even more snowmaking facilities.
