Skiers and riders at Lake Louise have been blessed with incredible conditions over the holidays, as numerous snowfalls and a generous amount of wind have left our slopes covered in powder. After the last two storms, the skies have cleared and visibility was the stuff of dreams – great light and great snow make for an unbeatable experience!
