The Lowdown on the Lowdown
Welcome to the Lake Louise Lowdown
I’ve been an employee of the Lake Louise Ski Area since 1997. I started as a Ski Patroller, and spent twelve years in the department, including four as the Patrol Supervisor. After leaving that position, I became the Mountain Operations Supervisor, maintaining my involvement with the Ski Patrol but also adding the other Mountain Operations departments to my responsibilities – Trail Crew, Terrain Park, Grooming, and Snowmaking.
This blog draws on fifteen years in Mountain Operations, and was inspired in part by Craig’s Unofficial Fernie Alpine Resort Guide, which ended in the summer of 2008 after 13 years of reporting on Fernie Alpine Resort in BC. It was a great site made by a passionate Fernie local, with interactive trail maps, detailed run descriptions, and constant reports on ski conditions and goings on in Fernie. I thought it would be great for Lake Louise to have its own blog, since as far as I knew nothing like it existed.
Thanks for visiting!
