Back to Banff & Lake Louise

Perched at the top of the run, you wait for your buddies to catch up. You’re pleased to have a moment on your own to pause and properly take in your surroundings. All around you, craggy peaks jut into the sparkling blue sky and steep gullies run into broad glacial bowls. It’s a mind-blowingly surreal setting for skiing. The rest of your group finally piles off the lift. It’s time to go! As you make your first turn, that magical sensation of floating through light, soft snow fills your face with a massive smile. It’s a feeling like no other.
