Shuttle Bus

In an effort to reduce the environmental impact of multiple vehicles driving to Lake Louise and to save skiers from having to retrieve their cars after the race we are very happy to offer a shuttle bus service from Banff to Lake Louise.
The bus will depart from Central Park in Banff (opposite the Post Office) at 7AM prompt and arrive in Lake Louise at 8AM giving you plenty of time to prepare for the race. Please angle park on Bow Avenue which runs parallel to the river and your car will be waiting for you close to the finish line after the race.

The cost for the bus is $15 (non refundable) per person and must be paid for during registration.
Please note that no gear can be left on the bus.
Note: This one-way shuttle from Banff to the Chateau does not provide any transport to any checkpoints other than the start of the loppet (beginning of Leg 1).
