I don't get how the ski resort is so quiet in the summer months. In comparison to the Lake itself and Moraine lake which are both ridiculously crowded ,the ski resort seems to be the hidden jewel. This is the third time we have been...More

I took the Ski Lift up and the Gondola back down as I am not wonderful at heights. The end result of the trip was amazing. The view from the top is incredible. I ate at the restaurant and it was delightful.

The gondola ride up the Lake Louise ski resort offers fantastic views of the lake and surrounding areas. We visit the wildlife conservancy at the top and even took a hike into grizzly bear country!

This was a good ride up to the ski area. There was a viewing deck just below the Gondola NFL then a walk down to the Nature Centre and a lovely Bistro. The view from the deck was great. 10 peaks. Best lunch view ever.

We decided to do the open one as our photos will be better and we were right to do it. Didn't see any bears but the scenery is beautiful and you can see Lake Louise in the distance. There's a nice café with fantastic views....More
