First opened as the Lake Louise Ski Lodge, it was closed for several years due to World War II.

After a grand reopening in 1948, the hotel became The Post Hotel and featured updated rooms and amenities for guests' enjoyment.

People came in droves to stay in their suites, the private chateau, or one of four cottages that offer easy access to outdoor activities like the ski resort and the sparkling waters of Lake Louise. Spend the day soaking in the sights and popular attractions in Calgary, then return to the hotel for fine dining or a few drinks at the English-style pub.
