With another 10 cm of Alberta powder falling yesterday, Lake Louise is reporting an alpine snowfall total of 264 cm for October and November - their best start to a season since 1950!

Based on the updates we've been receiving from friends in the area, conditions are epic, with pristine powder to be found daily, but the high snowfall has also created a solid base which is ideal for the Ski World Cup which is currently underway in the resort.

For me, Lake Louise is the jewel in the Rockies, a resort where you're not only blown away by the variety of terrain but also by the incredible views that follow every powder turn. Others clearly agree as the resort was recently voted Canada's Best Ski Resort in the 2017 World Ski Awards.

I’ll never forget my first day at “The Lake” nearly 14 years ago. Riding with some locals, we headed straight to Eagle Ridge and dropped into some seriously steep alpine chutes blanketed in some of the driest powder I had ever had the pleasure of riding.

The resort is always snow sure and has an abundance of long, wide and at times steep pistes, perfect for the world cup downhill racers, but beyond the groomers you’ll find some of the best steep skiing in the Rockies, untracked powder and awesome tree skiing. Lake Louise has everyone covered and is always going to be my favourite place to ski in the Alberta Rockies.
