Figure skater calls Alberta spot ‘the best place to skate’ (VIDEO)
Elladj Baldé, a figure skater known for posting videos of his ice tricks and flips on Instagram, recently went skating at an iconic Alberta location.
Baldé, who performed in Calgary last December as part of a fundraiser, shared a video on Instagram on Sunday showing off his incredible skills in Lake Louise.
“I had to do this one in the mountains of Lake Louise!” Baldé wrote in the post, adding “Isn’t this the nicest place to skate[?]”
The figure skater, with the magnificent Rockies and the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise as a backdrop, created a classic Canadian moment.
The video was directed and choreographed by Michelle Dawley, with videography by Carlotta Edwards. The performance is set to the song “Mount Everest” by Labrinth.

On Monday, Baldé posted another video from his time in Lake Louise, captioned “This is what I went through to create my last video…”
The video shows the skater stumbling and catching himself, and occasionally falling.
If you’ve skated this season and taken an epic fall, you’re not alone – it even happens to the pros!
