Incredible views everywhere, no lines (wkdy), long runs, bowls, variety
didn't have a ton of snow.
Lake Louise is amazing. I skied at Sunshine Village the day before and it doesn't even come close to Lake Louise. We skied during the week, so we enjoyed no lines. That said - it was a gorgeous day and it was busy. There is something for everyone and can experience the entire mountain - there is an easy way to get down from everywhere. There are incredible views everytime you look up - make sure you get there on a clear day. The mountain has something for everyone, and you have a hard time doing every run you want to hit. The employees are friendly and helpful. The only complaint was the lack of snow, with some rocks and stumps popping out on the steeps. Even so it was still unbelieveable, and I can just imagine how awesome it would be with a ton of snow. Not sure about the nightlife, but if you come here from Banff you will find plenty there. Put this place on the top of your list to get to.
