Western Canadians can get a deal to ski Lake Louise this spring. The ski area has put its spring ski and snowboard pass on sale. The pass is priced to work for locals as well as visitors to the Alberta resort.

Residents of Western Canada can purchase a spring pass for Lake Louise. Set at a price that pays for itself within four to five days of use, the spring pass works for spring break vacationers as well as locals. But purchasers must show proof of residency in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, or Manitoba.

The Lake Louise Spring Pass is valid for skiing for the remainder of this season, starting at the beginning of March. Lake Louise is scheduled to operate daily through May 5, 2013.

The pass can pay for itself in four or five days of use, depending on the type of pass. But with no restriction on the amount of use, it can be used for lift access for as many days as you want to ski.
