We hired a MTB for a day. Great service: helmet and lock included. We got a map, some tips and we're off! We did the Bow River Loop + Tramline to Lake Louise. Fun ride!

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.
