Description:
The Lake Louise Ski Area is a ski resort located in Banff National Park, near the village of Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. It can be reached from Banff, from where it is a 35 to 45 minute drive west on Trans-Canada Highway, or Calgary, a 2-hour drive. Lake Louise is one of three major ski resorts located in the Banff National Park.

The resort is situated on the southern slopes of the Merlin Ridge of the Slate Range, between the heights of Mount Richardson, Ptarmigan Peak, Pika Peak and Redoubt Mountain, all around 3000 m (10,000 ft) above sea level. The base of the slopes is defined by Pipestone River, a tributary of the Bow River, immediately north of the intersections between Highway 1A (Bow Valley Trail), Highway 1 (Trans-Canada Highway), and Highway 93 (Icefield Parkway).

Until Autumn 2008, the ski resort was owned and operated by the Resorts of the Canadian Rockies (RCR) company. Recently Charlie Locke, a former owner of the ski area, exercised a buy-back option to reacquire a majority share of Lake Louise from RCR to return as the ski resort's president and operator.
