Lake Louise is incredible! I was blown away by the scenery and the variety of terrain that rivals anywhere in North America. Lake Louise and Banff Sunshine have a sense of wilderness that you don't get in most large ski resorts with highly developed villages. They are remote feeling, but actually pretty easy to get to as it's a quite easy drive from Calgary to both Banff and Lake Louise. The snow at Lake Louise was really good when we visited. I wonder if the review of it being icy was from someone who didn't explore a lot of the mountain as I did find that a couple of the runs on the front side were busier runs and did get a bit slick later in the day, but why would you ski those when there is so much else. There is a ton of terrain here, it would take days and days to ski it all. I will be back. We did 2 days at Sunshine and 3 days at Lake Louise. Next time I would probably ski Lake Louise only as it was far and away the better resort overall, but if it is your first time to the area you definitely need to check out Sunshine too as it has its own charm.
