Après-Ski in Lake Louise
When the ski day ends a lot of people slope over to the Banded Peak Base Camp just at the base of the slopes. This is often busy and sometimes has live music and a barbecue. There’s always a choice of warming drinks or a cold beer. When it's sunny and warm this is the spot for apres!
If it's colder then head inside the Lake Louise Day Lodge to the Bier Stube or the Powder Keg Lounge - after skiing this can be lively and noisy, and is a great place for an apres brewski.
Back at the nearby Lake Louise Inn head downstairs to the Explorer's Lounge for family-friendly apres that can easily segway into dinner. If you're staying at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise then check out the world-class scenery of Lake Louise first before heading downstairs to Alpine Social for a great choice of beers, hand-crafted cocktails and an array of local wines. For those of you at the Post Hotel there's a super English-style pub called The Outpost serving classic pub fare and a fine selection of craft brews, and if you want to take it up a notch then head to the Sir Norman Lounge for a more relaxed and laid-back type of apres beside the fire - perfect for pre-dinner drinks and nibbles.
