  1. Lake Louise is one of my favorite spots, but I’ve never been there during ski season. In fact, I haven’t skied since middle school. I need to do that again!

  2. I’ve visited Canada twice, but never got the chance to ski. This list of resorts is helpful. The next time I visit, I will make sure to squeeze in some time for skiing.

  3. These are all awesome ski resorts to stay at indeed. Panorama and Silver Star sound like the resorts we would look into. My sons love to ski and snowboard but I can’t do either so I am glad there is just more than skiing. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I have never been skiing before, which surprises a lot of people considering I live around one of the most popular ski resorts in northeastern Pennsylvania. I don’t know, something about breaking my legs or worse just doesn’t appeal to me. There are some really beautiful resorts out there, though.

  5. I have been to Lake Louise, but just for some hiking. It is SO beautiful there. I am not a very good skier myself, but I bet my brother would be all over these mountains! What a beautiful view too!
