USA Today has named Alberta's Lake Louise Ski Resort the "most scenic in the world" ... and we certainly agree with their choice!

With 4,200 acres available for skiing, it's one of the largest ski resorts in North America -- and it's definitely worth visiting, even if you aren't interested in hitting the slopes.

"This iconic ski resort is the second largest in Canada and unsurpassed with postcard perfect beauty," USA Today writes.

"The view across the valley to the Victoria Glacier is ... awe-inspiring. And, at the resort, there is a green or a blue run from every chair, so guests of different abilities can enjoy the scenery without getting too separated."

Banff, Alberta is home to some of the most spectacular views in the world with bright blue water, 1,600 km of hiking trails and the rocky mountains.

Lake Louise faced some stiff competition: Quebec's Mt. Tremblant also made USA Today's list.
