Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

If you’re travelling from lower ground, such as Toronto or Montreal, it pays to acclimatize to loftier elevations for a couple of days. With the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise as your 1,750- metre-high base camp, explore the black diamonds at Banff Sunshine, Lake Louise Ski Resort and Mt. Norquay, then head for the hotel’s Deep Stretch session. Your legs and lungs will thank you when you’re standing at the top of your first heli run.
