Having always stayed in Banff before, I decided to check out Canmore for my recent ski weekend away in the Rockies. Chose StoneRidge and I wasn't disappointed. The 1 bedroom apartment was perfect for us. Nicely decorated; very comfy bed (particularly after skiing all day); great bathtub and of course, its wonderful having the fireplace to warm up to. Canmore is a great little community. Not touristy like Banff but certainly full of character. Its only a few minutes down the road and therefore a perfect spot for exploring the Banff National Park and its ski fields.
Recommend you go to the Sage Wine Bar while in Canmore!
