The Chateau Lake Louise

A January 2004 trip to Banff by nikibutler

Quote: This was our second visit to the Chateau for a skiing/snowboarding holiday. The location is idyllic, the hotel is amazing, and the service is great. Both of our visits have been in January, and on both occasions, the ground outside was deep in snow, unlike at its sister hotel in Banff.

I have visited twice during the last week in January, and on both occasions it has been snowing pretty hard and very cold (-20°C to -30°C). You need to wrap up very warmly for the lifts. When it's not snowing, the views are amazing. The ski school is very good, and there are no queues this time of year. I would definitely recommend it.
