Got hurt getting on the Partridge chair lift after attendant mishandled the lift and swung the chair into my legs. Never happened before in over 30 years of skiing. Poor training and leadership, terrible attitude of employees, coupled with ancient equipment. ... Full Review

Skied Lake Louise Jan 27-28, 2020. This was my first time visiting with a group of friends. The place does not disappoint. We had bluebird skies for the morning on the first day, and the views are incredible. The next day it snowed all day and powder was everywhere. I really enjoyed the tree runs and the bowls. This place has something for everyone. If you want groomers, there is great variety on the front side. If you are looking for bowls and wide open spaces, you can find that on the back side. If you want some challenging double blacks, you can find that too. I enjoyed some of the tree runs and untouched powdery snow. Rock Garden was one of the runs that really lived up to its name. It's basically a 4' catwalk that leads to a slope full of boulders. One of those runs that you and your buddies laugh about for the rest of the trip. Had a great time a Lake Louise! Definitely will look to come back! I would rank this experience up there with the time I went to Jackson and had 18" of powder. Ski Lake Louise...you will not be disappointed.... Full Review

Lake Louise still appears to be taking a snow measurement and then doubling it. Dragging my base even near the summits so be aware the 152 cm is rare right now. Great hill that still needs some more snow if you are a tree boarder.... Full Review

One of the most beautiful ski resorts on the planet. Stunning scenery. They have a lot of great terrain, really varied and lots that is off the beaten path if you choose to look for it.

Learners area overrun by super speedy high end skiers - very difficult with so many beginners - steep icy areas in green runs interlocked with signage to black runs. Smokers in lines waiting for lifts - amazing mountain but not big wide long runs for blues and green runs. This is a resort fir the black runs which were awesome. Not a place for beginners. ...
