We rented ice cleats to walk Johnson Canyon and ice skates to skate on Lake Louise from Wilson Sports. We had excellent assistance from each staff member we came across and would highly recommend this business for hire or purchase.

My friend and I were camping at Lake Louise and on our first of four nights we discovered our MSR camping stove would not light...not good. I'd never had this issue before and after messing with it for a while with no success decided to see if there was a mountain shop in town. We brought the stove to Wilson... More

Came here on a snowy day in June (!!), and they had just the mittens we needed to keep warm. Friendly and helpful service. Standard prices -- not jacked up, but not cheap, either. Products for many different sports -- hiking, skiing, etc.

I'd visited Lake Louise a few years ago and bought some off-piste skis here. On returning 8 years later, there was still the same warm welcome and real ski expertise. Even Bill who'd sold me and prepared my skis back then was working there still. Good selection of ski clothes, a decent range of ski brands and staff who know... More

Thanks so much for your feedback. I am a big fan of the independent shop and enjoy the passion, personality and perseverance of long standing, established shops. While it is not getting any easier for a shop like this, experience and enthusiasm are contributing to good value for people enjoying our establishment. I am not alone at this location as... More

My friend and I came from Banff to do some x country skiing in Lake Louise and we wanted to rent the gear at Wilson Sports. As we didn't read the policy of the shop beforehand (who does???) we both didn't have a credit card with us. We were asked for one and as we said we don't have one... More

We are sorry to hear of the inconvenience and frustration you experienced. While we certainly didn't mean for this to happen, we also have to have a policy that is consistent in order to ensure our equipment is secured for return in good order. Similar to renting a hotel room. We will strive to ensure that people know what to... More

We visited Lake louise ski resort and rented skies, boots, and clothing. Rental price at the resort was to pricey, so we chose Wilsons. Great choice. Staff is super nice and we had great experience at Lake louise.
