School Ski Trips to
Lake Louise, Canada

Located in the heart of the magnificent Canadian Rockies, Lake Louise offers world-class skiing amongst the beautiful, rugged backdrop of the Banff National Park, a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • One of North America's biggest resorts
  • 4,200 acres of skiable terrain with 145 named runs
  • A huge amount of après available

The unique layout of Lake Louise allows for beginner, intermediate and expert runs to be reached from every chair, whilst the 4,200 acres of skiable terrain is made up of endless chutes, glades, gullies, gentle slopes, remote bowls and some of the most challenging terrain the Rockies has to offer.

When you’re not on the slopes, the Lake Louise Inn has a number of après ski options to keep you entertained throughout your stay; toast some marshmallows on their weekly bonfire, take a dip in their newly renovated pool or organise a pizza party at the Timberwolf Café, the Lake Louise Inn’s own on-site pizzeria. Alternatively, head into Lake Louise village for a taste of small-town living and enjoy the arts and crafts on offer at the local gift shops.

What Our Customers Say


  • What about après events?

    We supply a basic après package to all groups, which includes ideas and materials to run a number of in-house après activities, such as quiz nights, games nights and bingo nights. However, we also offer an extensive list of additional après ski events in each resort, which can be included in your package for a small supplement if you wish. For more details, please see the information on the individual resort pages.

  • What about ski equipment?

    Skis, boots, poles and helmet hire are all included as standard. You’ll usually be issued and fitted with your equipment on the day of arrival.

  • Which ski schools do you use?

    We have close, established links with all the ski schools in the resorts we offer. In all instances, we can guarantee highly qualified, English-speaking ski instructors who will make sure each student gets the most out of their time on the slopes.

  • Is a Tour Manager included as standard?

    Yes, all of our ski groups have one Tour Manager designated to them to take care of all the logistics and ensure everything runs smoothly. Your Tour Manager may meet you in resort, but it’s sometimes possible for them to travel to and from resort with your group.

  • What else should I be looking for in a resort?

    Choosing the right resort should be governed by two main criteria: the skiing and the resort facilities. If your group has younger children or a majority of beginner skiers, then a large ski area isn’t necessary. However, for advanced skiers, the opportunity to ski more pistes will be important.

    Younger groups will not need a wide-ranging après program and lots of events can be organised in or near the hotel, including those provided in the complimentary après ski pack. However, adult groups and groups with older children will want to organise some evenings out and for après ski events to be in abundance.
