The Lake Louise Ski Resort, previously known as the Lake Louise Ski Area, is a ski resort in western Canada, located in Banff National Park near the village of Lake Louise, Alberta. It is located 57 km (35 mi) west of Banff. Lake Louise is one of three major ski resorts located in 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 3,000 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).(Wikipedia)
