Terrain,bowls and vertical and best scenery in N.A.
Early season cold, sometimes snow...lack of.
Go in February, March, April, get late season powder and not too cold. The resort is a great escape for couples and serious skiers/boarders, tons of terrain, backside almost always has great snow Kicking Horse also about 1 hr away. Wanna party, stay in Banff townsite not at Lake Louise itself....plenty of restaurants and bars and amenities.
