Lake Louise is truly a world-class ski resort. This was the first mountain that I had ever skied and was a bit intimidated by the size. I hadn't skied in three years prior to skiing here and surprised by how steep some of the green runs were, particularly on the front of the mountain. This isn't a mountain that is very well-suited for beginners, in my opinion. There is a small bunny hill on the front of the mountain, but the next step up from that are the greens, and I found them to be fairly steep and long.
I much preferred the backside of the mountain, especially the green bowl and the Larch area. The Larch area is facing the backside of the mountain and is less steep, but the runs are also not as long, which is good for novices like myself. The bowl is also fun, but it can be very scary if it is windy and snowy because the visibility is very poor, and with no trees, it is difficult to see where you're going. If you get too far over to the edge of the run, you can fall right into a double black diamond!
The snow quality was tremendous and the views were unbelievable. It took your breath away! Unfortunately, we only had a few sunny days, so we didn't see as much as we might have otherwise seen, but what we did was amazing.
