Lake Louise, AB
The Bhagchandani family had driven to Banff before, but as they were about to have their first day on the slopes at Lake Louise, they took advantage of the free shuttle service from Calgary, thinking wouldn't it be nice just to sit back and enjoy the views and let someone else do the driving.
"I have driven to Banff once before in the summer and it was beautiful but by taking the bus in winter, it was a whole new experience and I appreciate not driving,” said Amit Bhagchandani. Along with his family, he enjoyed being a spectator as they headed to Lake Louise. They took picture after picture of the sun rising on snow-clad peaks, the frozen waterfalls and the never-ending heaps of snow. When the bus arrived at Lake Louise Ski Resort, nine-year-old son Aaray, was the first out the door. He had never skied before and today was the day.
“This is why we brought our children to Canada,” said his father Amit. “There is so much more opportunity here to experience things. This is our first full winter in Canada, so we want to try everything.”
Ways to make the journey and mountain experience simpler:
Ride the Lake Louise Ski Bus. Make a reservation, then be at one of the departure points in Calgary at the predetermined time. Buy your lift ticket on the bus and ride to the resort for free. Relax, enjoy the ride to and from the resort. If you already have a lift ticket, there is a nominal fee for the return trip.
Rent ski and snowboarding equipment at the resort. It’s not easy to know what gear you need but the rental team knows exactly what to do. They will match your ability to the gear.
