Great chalet about 15 minutes out of Lake Louise but worth the drive. Spacious cabin with gas fireplace and Jacuzzi in the main room! Pleasant balcony with forest / mountain views. Café / restaurant was great - especially the mussels! No TV and poor reception so very relaxing .... even had time for a jigsaw and cards! Staff were very friendly and attention to detail amazing .... only downside was no ironing board and plenty of mozzies!

The view from the gondola and at the top of the mountain was again stunning. At the very top of the mountain is a cosmic weather station that was built in ...
... commanding them to stop and snap, barely pulling over for the massive RV's traveling on their bumpers. Seriously people...We were stuck in a traffic jam for 15 minutes because cars were stopped on the highway to take pictures of an elk eating some grass. (It was a pretty massive elk with a wicked rack on it). I guess I am lucky that I grew up in Northern Ontario and would see more wildlife in my backyard on any given day then I have seen ...
... station in the International Geophysical Year (1957-58). The Station was closed in 1978 and the building dismantled in 1981. On the Bow Valley floor below us there is diverse vegetation and a reliable water supply for over 220 resident or seasonal wildlife species. The Vermilion Wetlands are a popular stopover for a variety of birds on their spring and fall migrations along the Rocky Mountain Flyway. This whole area is a Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks ...
