FYI : “”There is no problem to park overnight at the Lake Louise parking lot if you are going for an overnight back-country trip. There are few things you have to follow though:
– Come to check in at our Visitor centre and leave with us your licence plates, names and places where you’re going to park your car.
– Most Importantly: you have to get an overnight winter Back-country Permit in one of our visitors centers. You can book it via phone (403-522-1264) unless you obtain permits through the ACC at the time of booking the hut nights.
– Please park in one of the corners of the Lake Louise public parking lot and not by the snowbank. There are snow plows clearing the parking lot every morning.
