Travel from coast to coast, and embrace the cool, crisp winter air with this guide to Canada's must-visit winter resorts.
The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, Lake Louise, Alta.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site in Banff National Park, the beautiful Chateau offers one of Canada's most photographed natural environments, in addition to opulent lodging and dining.
First opened in 1911, the Chateau was designed as a means of drawing summer tourists to this scenic landscape. Nowadays, the Chateau caters to winter tourists with a variety of activities, including a breathtaking hike to the Johnston Canyon icefalls. There, you'll strap on ice-cleats and trek into the wilderness to view massive, one-of-a-kind ice pillars formed around frozen waterfalls.
Perhaps the single most impressive aspect of The Fairmont Chateau (aside from its sheer scale and beauty), is its close proximity to stunning Lake Louise, complete with custom-made ice castles and a breathtaking expanse of ice skating opportunity.
