Great rental equipment that's replaced every year. We rented cross country skis and got great help and advice from the staff. I bet it would be a great place to rent downhill equipment from too. It's walking distance from the Lake Louise Inn.

Wonderful selection of clothing and gear. Super helpful and knowledgeable staff more than willing to help plan trips understand the area.
