Lake Louise

The backcountry access off the ski hill at Lake Louise Ski Resort is good but not extensive. You’ll find some tree skiing and plenty of alpine bowls, which is mostly what Lake Louise is known for. The alpine terrain is definitely worth seeking out. Because of the complexity of the terrain and snow, you’ve got to be patient and carefully pick your lines. The area has a continental snowpack that really depends on the season. I’ve always thought it best between February and April. You’ll also be able to select from plenty of cozy lodges and hotels outside of Banff National Park.

ACMG Ski Guide extraordinaire and emission free adventurer

Greg Hill is known far and wide for incredible first ascents and all around skiing prowess. He’s also a good friend of 57hours. His on mountain accomplishments are too many to list here, but he’s been known for skiing the odd 2,000,000’ in 2010; he skied 50,000’ in 24hrs because he can. Oh, yeah, he also climbed and skied 100km in the month of March 2014. Not too shabby. Of late, Greg’s changing the world one adventure at a time with his Chevy Bolt. Zero-emission skiing and adventure.
