Lake Louise Back Bowls

Lake Louise is one of those ski areas that’s just too big to be captured in one map. Visitors have described Lake Louise as “business in the front, party in the back” because, while its front side looks like your typical ski resort with lots of lifts, groomed runs, and on-slope amenities, the back bowls are an entirely different animal. Accessed by a single lift, these bowls are as close to the backcountry ski experience as you’re going to get inbounds. This is big terrain, suitable for expert skiers, with no truly easy way down. So, when James Niehues painted his Lake Louise ski map in 2012, he also painted a separate map of the Lake Louise back bowls, including Paradise Bowl, Saddleback Bowl, and Boomerang Bowl.

If you’ve skied Lake Louise, you’re probably intimately familiar with these bowls, they’re some of the best terrain you’ll ever find off a chairlift. And Niehues captured them in all of their glory in this painting. So, whether you know those bowls like the back of your hand, or you aspire to ski them someday, this trail map is the perfect companion to your Lake Louise Back Bowl dreams.
