I suggest renting skis the first day, then storing them at the resort or taking them with you - don't mess with renting at your hotel. Sunshine Village has fewer amentities, but better for the "true skiier" - more challenging and only natural snow. Lake Louise is more a resort in the typical Vail Valley tradition - more plush, better food, and groomed trails.
In spring, it's best to ski higher up the mountain or on the Back Bowls/Larch areas. Fewer people and much better snow. There's a good mix of green, blue, and black, and plenty of acreage to keep you content.
