Current snow depth at Lake Louise is 177 cm (back bowls). Weather forecast is about -1C.

This trip is intended for all levels of skiers and boarders.

We'll do one or two warmup runs together, and then break off into similar-ability groups for the rest of the day.

Make sure you know where the Petro-Canada car pool location is and where to park. We are leaving the car pool location at 7:00 am sharp

Please arrive 5 mins early (not too early please). DO NOT be late. If you are going to be late, call Noel at 403-618-8865 so that we can make arrangement to wait/not wait for you.

We will meet at the main lodge (Ten Peaks Lodge) at 9 AM on the main level, by the windows facing the ski hill.

We'll have lunch at 12:30 pm. You don't have to be with the group for lunch. You may continue skiing or have lunch somewhere else.

At the end of the day, we are gathering up at the base in the Ten Peaks Lodge and will leave the hill at 4:45 pm.

A basic ski/snowboard rental package is $47+GST for sport performance gear, $63+GST for high performance gear. It is strongly recommended that you rent gears from Sports Rent in Montgomerry as it typically is less expensive than on the hill and can be picked up early in the morning or the evening before. You can mention COC and get 10% discount

REMINDER to let us know if you can drive so we know how many drivers are required. If you would like to drive, please indicate how many people you can take (including yourself and ski/boarding gear) and confirm that you have winter tires please. Should this information change prior to the trip, please advise the coordinator accordingly. Thanks!
