Lake Louise offers exceptional on mountain dining. Whether you want to just warm up with a cup of coco, or enjoy and indulgent lunch – there is a full range of choices.
On the Mountain
The Whitehorn Bistro is one of the most scenic ski resort lunch spots on the planet. Whitehorn Bistro’s view across the valley towards the Lake of Lake Louise is simply breathtaking. The food is good / average with the resort prices you might expect. This is must do while skiing the resort, and book a reservation to ensure you get a seat inside.
If you’re looking for a bite to eat while skiing on the backside, the Temple Lodge offers a good variety of typical ski resort fare. The most festive of the 3 choices is Sawyer’s Nook where you have an old school mountain feel, with fondue to boot.
At the Base
There are a host of dining options right at the base of the resort. Whether you’re seeking sushi at Kuma Yama, or a burger, fries and a brew – you’ll find a host of choices. Also, I found that getting a table isn’t quite as bad as some other, more crowded resorts.

Somehow a cold beer does seem to warm you up…
