Thank you for the kind review, I am happy to hear that you consider us a "must do" in Banff. Kind Regards, Elizabeth Saunders Guest Relations Manager

Take the chairlift up Mt Norquay up to the Cliff Restaurant at the 6857 ft point of the mountain. The views are stunning. It cost us $20 per person. It was well worth it. We'll definitely return in the future.
