In the fall of 1883, three Canadian Pacific Railway construction workers stumbled across a cave containing hot springs on the eastern slopes of Alberta's Rocky Mountains. From that humble beginning was born Banff National Park, Canada's first national park and the world's third. Now a world class resort and historic site, Banff provides a relaxed atmosphere, conducive to discussion and creativity intermingled with fresh air, great hikes, fantastic ski slopes, varied cuisine, museums and shops. A soak in the Sulphur Mountain Hot Springs can soothe away your stresses after a long and exhausting day. Take the opportunity to regroup and focus after long and tedious academic/work terms. Come, experience Banff in all its splendor and wilderness - it's your adventure!
Few places on the planet rival the Rocky Mountains for stunning beauty, exhilarating activities, country lodges, friendly folks, charming shops and first-class restaurants.
The town of Lake Louise is approximately 50 km from Banff and is home to the famous Chateau Lake Louise, a Canadian Pacific hotel built in the late 1800s, known as the "Jewel of the Canadian Rockies". The lake, on whose shores the Chateau sits, is 5,680 feet above sea level. During winter the lake is dotted with cross country skiers and skaters whilst summer revelers enjoy an easy row across its blue green waters.
Sunshine Village has provided the high point of many a ski vacation. Rising to nearly 9,000 feet, Sunshine is the highest ski resort in the Canadian Rockies, with the kind of alpine charm and hospitality that skiers dream about.
