Welcome to Rocky Mountain hospitality at the Lake Louise Ski Resort & Summer Gondola!
Located at 6700’ (2042m), the Whitehorn Bistro proudly offers an Alpine-inspired menu nestled within the remodelled Lake Louise Ski Resort’s original gondola drive station.
We are relentless in our search for locally grown flavours, then incorporated into contemporary Canadian dishes reinvented with a Rocky Mountain twist. Pair your dinner with carefully selected Western Canadian wines, regional craft beers or handcrafted cocktails; creatively infused with locally grown ingredients!
Our menus have been created in collaboration with many local, regional and Canadian award-winning suppliers. We recognize those who, in turn, allows us to showcase authentic Rocky Mountain flavours!
