When you think of the Rocky Mountains, images of wintery snowscapes or summertimes filled with canoe trips might fill your mind, but it is spring that is genuinely the unheralded hero of Banff National Park. This time of year, the bears venture out of slumber; wildflowers like prairie crocuses begin to reveal their colour and shape, and the majestic Lake Louise transforms with a magnificent turquoise tinge. As if out of a cinematic feature, it is in the springtime that Lake Louise comes to life. For those looking to awaken (or reawaken) their senses, the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and surrounding area offer outdoor adventures and creative and culinary experiences designed to give you a much-needed dose of inspiration this spring.
Put A Little Spring in Your Skis
The blooms may not be out on the ski hills, but the longer days mean more time to carve out improvement in your ski skills with fewer lineups. The warmer temps also mean capturing the perfect ski or snowshoe selfie of you and a loved one doesn’t result in freezing fingers or frozen smiles. Not to mention springtime deals at The Lake Louise Ski Resort make an afternoon of slopeside playtime a must-do activity this time of year with the skill hill open until May 2, 2021.
