Moraine Lake is a glacially fed lake in Banff National Park about 9 miles outside the Village of Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, at an elevation of approximately 6,183 feet. The lake has a surface area of about 120 acres. The lake, being glacially fed, does not reach its crest until mid to late June. When it is full, it reflects a distinctive shade of blue. The color is due to the refraction of light off the rock flour deposited in the lake on a continual basis. Similarly, Lake Louise is also a lake fed by glaciers and had coloration due to the mineral deposits from the rocks. Fairmont's Chateau Lake Louise, one of Canada's grand railway hotels, is located on Lake Louise's eastern shore. It is a luxury resort hotel built in the early decades of the 20th century by the Canadian Pacific Railway.
