The Lone Pine
One of the first runs in North America to be given a double black diamond designation, this is Mt.
Norquay’s signature run. The unrelenting 1,300 vertical feet of thigh burning bumps overlooking
the base area has been accessible to hearty downhillers since 1948 when Mt. Norquay opened
the first chairlift in North America.
The Lake Louise Ski Area
A black run on the front side of the mountain, this is part of the Men's and Women's World Cup
Downhill race course. Stand at the top and take in stunning views across the valley to Lake
Louise and the Victoria Glacier. Then make your way down this steep, groomed black diamond
run that will leave your legs burning by the bottom.
Take the Summit Platter and head down the ridge to the left. Brown Shirt often collects plenty of
powder and can be a great choice even days after a storm. This is a good expert run for skiers
and riders who enjoy off-piste terrain.
The original lift at The Lake Louise Ski Area went up this trail in the 1930s. Today it’s a favourite
intermediate groomed run that is great for cruising and conveniently close to the historic Temple
Lodge for a well-deserved beer and burger.

Flight is worth seeking out.
