Day trips to Lake Louise
Book Now

Thank you for your support for the past 10 years as we offer day trips to the mountains from Red Deer. We've moved to Nordegg and unfortunately, we no longer offer Red Deer departures for our tours.

Due to COVID-19, we have decided not to operate the ski bus for this winter. We are planning to offer day trips to Lake Louise from Nordegg for winter 2021/22.

The easy way to experience Lake Louise’s spectacular scenery and legendary 4,200 skiable acres of world-class terrain. Kick back and relax as we drive from Nordegg to Lake Louise. Head out for a great day on the slopes. Enjoy a hot chocolate at the bus before letting us take care of the drive home.

We've been taking you to your favourite mountain resorts since 2010 and this winter we'll be heading out for day trips to Lake Louise. All tours include return transportation from Nordegg, snacks on the bus, park fees and a lift ticket (if selected).

Pick an upcoming trip, come on your own or bring a few friends along. It's that easy!


  • A full day of skiing at one of Alberta's best resorts.
  • Ski hard all day, no need to stay awake for the drive home.
  • Get dropped off at the base lodge with your lift ticket in hand. No need to fight through the parking lot and wait in line at the ticket window.

This day trip is open to all ability levels, whether you are a beginner and or an expert. Youth 13 and older can travel on their own, all we need is the waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian prior to departure.
