LAKE LOUISE – A reservation system is being launched at Lake Louise ski resort in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

So far this season, the ski resort has managed skier capacity by limiting sales of certain products, but effective Tuesday (Dec. 22), there’s a new reservation system for all ticket and pass holders.

“While we don’t expect to reach capacity most days, there are days we will be close,” according to the ski resort’s website.

“Avoid disappointment by reserving your day(s) on the mountain up to two weeks in advance. This is particularly important for weekend and holiday days.”

Season pass holders have priority to make bookings on each day, being able to make reservations within a rolling two-week window. Lake Louise Plus Card holders also have to make reservations.

“Any day we are not at capacity, we will also be selling day tickets at the resort,” stated the website, but the ski resort strongly recommends day tickets be bought online in advance, then reserve the required day.

“As we move into the main portion of our season, we continue to monitor our guest capacities to ensure we can provide a safe and enjoyable experience for our guests and employees,” according to the ski hill’s website.

“Our guest capacities continue to be adjusted based on current restrictions in place from the government of Alberta.

Under new provincial government regulations announced by Premier Jason Kenney earlier this month, ski hills such as Lake Louise, Sunshine and Mount Norquay are allowed to stay open.

"We appreciate everyone’s patience, understanding and cooperation as we continue to adjust our operations to keep skiing and riding all season long,” states Lake Louise’s website.
