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!

Our question of the last week was answered today when we learned that the pine trees we've seen with their needles stripped are the handy work of the ...
... in the clouds of which we were now in to offer some photo opportunities of the glacier before it would vanish again like a petulant child. There was a further 1.5km walk to a viewing platform where a further Three glacial faces should be visible but we opted not to continue as the cloud was so dense and I for one was quite knackered! We took time out to take in the alpine meadow growing all around ...
... lesson involved learning that the first manager of the Lake itself was from Cornwall and came over in the 19th century. Hence one of the biggest peaks surrounding the Lake is called Mount St Piran (our Cornish Saint).
The rest of the day we spent Mountie spotting (we bagged one!) and booking our Cable car trip for tomorrow. A further splash in the hotel pool this afternoon and a particularly gratifying game of hairy pairy fairy took ...
