Although the world class downhill skiing attracts most winter visitors to Lake Louise, the area also offers an abundance of cross-country skiing. With winter's snowfall, the picturesque hiking trails of Lake Louise, which draw thousand of tourists to the area each summer, are transformed into some of the most spectacular cross-country trails in the Canadian Rockies. Of course, there is never a shortage of snow!
An ultimate ski experience! As helicopter skiing is not permitted in Banff National Park, there are several options available and the closest is an hour and fifteen minutes away.
