Lake Louise
Wide Open Until May 1 – It’s Time To Plan Your Next Visit!

Earlier this season, Lake Louise reported more snow, a deeper snowpack and opened more terrain earlier in the season, making 2006/7 the best year to date. The continued snowfall has kept this trend, with skiers consistently reporting “the best skiing in well over 30 years” all season long.
With over 4200 acres of terrain, 3,250 feet of vertical, 4 mountain faces, #1 scenery and record snowfall, Lake Louise Mountain Resort is a world-class jewel in the Canadian Rockies.

Visit Lake Louise Mountain Resort for Spring Episode ’07, taking place on April 28 and 29, 2007. Featuring live music, on-mountain events, Kokanee Beer Gardens, Kokanee Free Ride and more.

Mt Hood - Timberline Lodge
Timberline is the only area on Mt. Hood that will have lift serviced skiing and riding 7 days a week through Labor Day! With an amazing base of snow, conditions will be fantastic this spring and summer season. Our Palmer High Speed Quad Chairlift is scheduled to open this weekend, and will be operating throughout the summer. Ascending to 8,540 feet on the southern side of Mt. Hood, it provides breathtaking views and access to the best summer terrain in the United States. When other areas are turning their attention away from the snow, we're just getting started

There has never been a better value at Timberline. Hop on our lifts any day of the week, now through May 28th, with our new Spring Session Pass for only $139. With two months left in the spring season, you can't lose with this pass!
