We're rediscovering the magic of winter with old time sleigh rides in Lake Louise...

Imagine back to a time - not so long ago - when all travel in wintertime was either on snowshoes, rough wooden skis or, even more commonly, in a sleek sleigh behind a team of horses.

It’s no mistake that one of the most enduring Christmas songs takes all ages back to an era when winter travel meant dashing through the snow, enjoying fresh air and time with those you love all cuddled up in a horse drawn sleigh.

Brewster Adventures brings that Christmas card image to life at Lake Louise, with the winter schedule of sleigh rides that follow the lake side trail beneath Victoria Glacier. Views of the Ice Falls at the end of the Lake by day or the glow of the Chateau on evening rides.  

While there are tons of activities to enjoy in the winter landscape, there is no better way to spend time together, drinking in the beauty of sparkling snow and blue sky, than bundled together in a sleigh.

Take your family gathering or holiday party outdoors at Lake Louise, with private sleigh ride bookings available for groups, romantic two-seat cutter rides, or regularly scheduled sleigh rides seven days a week. Evening rides are also available every day except Sundays, when you can enjoy the starlit sky and the beauty of a quiet Rocky Mountain night.

A sleigh ride in the mountains – whether you’re humming Jingle Bells or not – will take you back to simpler times, when families and friends enjoyed each other’s company, breathed in lots of healthy fresh air, and celebrated a special time of year.

See www.BrewsterAdventures.com for more information and the 2009-2010 sleigh ride schedule & video, or call (403) 522-1898, ext. 1210. Sleigh Rides depart from the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.
