Hotel guest comment card comments:

"This accommodation was perfect for my daughter and me. Might make this an annual event" Ms. Bell, December 2009. When asked if they were to return to Banff, would they stay at the Banff Aspen Lodge again, Ms. Bell responded with "In a heartbeat!"

I'm so glad you enjoyed your time with us and we'd love to have you stay with us again!

Christmas Party!

We had our Christmas Party at Melissa's Restaurant this past week! We have it there every year and it is always a blast. To eat we have a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings and a lovely festive dessert.


My favourite part of the evening is the Secret Santa Gift Exchange. Everyone brings a wrapped gift and leaves it on the table. We then get to choose a gift from the table for ourselves. The fun part is that if you find yourself admiring someone else's gift, you are able to "steal" it from them (instead of picking a new one). This year I received a ITunes gift card...I am so exited to use it!



Thanks to Barbara for organizing this great dinner for us and as well, thank you to Melissa's for hosting us. For more information on Melissa's, check out their website: http://www.melissasrestaurant.com/

Tunnel Mountain

I was hiking on Tunnel Mountain yesterday and there were three deer just off the trail. The following is a photo of two of them watching me VERY closely.

Here I am at the top of Tunnel...the mountain to the left in the background is Rundle Mountain and it goes all the way from Banff to Canmore.Tunnel Mountain is a mini mountain located right in the middle of the town of Banff. The mountain has a 4.3km trail (round trip) with 300 metres of elevation gain. It is a great way to see the entire town of Banff and get some exercise. I tried to go up it at least once a week in the summer months and look forward to climbing it this winter :)
