Apparently too new for TripAdvisor, the Whitehorn Bistro at the top of the gondola is totally amazing. Opened in the last year, the view is absolutely spectacular. And unlike most ski restaurants, this one is amazing. We had a cheese tray appetizer, potato and lobster bisque, and we split Spanish risotto (basically a seafood paella but with risotto). All amazing.... More

We really enjoyed this. There were not too many people which was a nice change. The lift to the top of the mountain was peaceful and gave you the great opportunity on the way up to photograph wildlife should they decide to come out. When we arrived at the top, we had a drink and snack at the new restaurant.... More

Taking a gondola up the mountain, we saw two grizzlies! At the top of the lower gondola, there were hiking trails (that were roped off from the trails that would lead one to the grizzlies) up to the highest gondola. Very steep - and an extremely good hike! You can see Lake Louise from this mountain.

This hill provides something for any skier or snowboarder (I am one of the latter) with an assortment of lift and run choices. The ski school is incredible for any level of skier, and recommended for anyone who has not skied in a while or is just starting out the season. The multiple lodges are luxury beyond compare - and...

This is a great place to spot grizzly bears in the summer months. We did see one on the chair lift ride to the top. But I was not expecting the views on the way down. Wow! Just incredible!

If you're travelling in the area, this resort seemed, to us, to have everything. Great design for an alpine 'feel', plenty of things to do, and access to higher levels by chairlift, from which we did see bears (in the distance).... check out Pylon 13 going up for them - they may still be there! Excellent views from the summit... More

Couldn't find this at first but was given directions from someone at Lake Louise, it's the other side if the highway. Throw in buffet lunch or breakfast with free ground squirrel viewings for few more $s and is very good value. Great ride up the gondola with terrified husband and chilled out kids, awesome views from the top. Had heard... More

We got a late start and decided to take a ride up the ski lift to have lunch. This turned out to be a very pleasant trip. Beautiful views from the top. Good food.

When I was at the Lake Louise Ski Resort, I chose the Gondola and Gourmet package, which means you can ride up in the gondola, or open air chair lift, and have lunch at the Whitehorn Bistro for 49.95. Since it was a beautiful day, I sat outside on the patio. It was a fantastic view, and the food was... More
