Lake Louise serves up the most terrain in the Canadian Rockies and from time to time gets some good dumps of snow as well. This is where most people from Calgary come to shred along with many of the people staying in Banff, so it can get busy on the weekends. The mountain has three different areas to choose from, all offering up something different, allowing you to escape the crowds even on the busiest of days.

The front side of the mountain is where the majority of the crowds stick, it is wide open up top and for the most part groomers with the majority of the trees being to tight to ski through. The back side is where things get serious with quite a few rocky chutes off the top opening up into some lengthy bowls, wide open powder fields and even some good tree skiing towards the southern end of the ridge line. Larch area is the third part of the mountain, it is on a different mountain than the other two areas, and has some good tree skiing and mellow runs if you are looking for that sort of thing. If you are here in the early season or the base isn't that deep be very careful about rocks on the top and on the backside as they are everywhere, if you see an exposed rock chances are there are probably some hidden around it as well.

Sunshine Village is a big mountain resort close to Calgary and Banff. It's made up of several mountains if you want to get specific, but the entire ski area is accessed by one lift at the base lodge. Fortunately this lift is the Gondola, and is the fastest lift and has the highest capacity, so the base area doesn't get too bottlenecked with the crowds. [ Read More ]
Vancouver Islands only remaining lift serviced mountain is yet another one of the coastal mountains in B.C. that gets pounded hard with Pacific storms all winter long. Located about half way up Vancouver Island, Mount Washington rises 1588 meters above sea level and is just 80 km east of wide open ocean, making it the closest ski resort to the Pacific Ocean.
