Brewster Sleigh Ride at Lake Louise

This past week I had the opportunity to go on a horse drawn sleigh ride around Lake Louise! It was such a great time and definitely made me feel like I was in a winter wonderland.

You catch the sleigh behind the Chateau Lake Louise and it then goes along the lake for around 2km. It turns around at the end of the Lake Trail and if lucky, you will be able to see some gorgeous frozen water falls at this spot. We even saw someone ice climbing on it!

The sleigh drops you off back where you began by the Chateau and you can then go in and warm up with a hot chocolate in the historic Chateau Lake Louise. Check out for more information!

Celebrating the Olymipcs in Lake Louise

I am really enjoying the Olympics so far and feel so proud to be Canadian. Vancouver and Whistler and doing an amazing job as host cities and promoting Canada as a whole. I've almost cried so many times since the games started...the athletes are incredible to watch. The women's downhill that took place on Wednesday was insane; the hill was pure ice and I loved seeing Shaun White do a "triple mccool mctwistflip" on Wednesday evening in the halfpipe finals (although I am not sure of exact name). I really wonder where some of the snowboarding names come from...

Lake Louise is showing their Olympic Spirit with some gorgeous frozen Olympic Rings that are located behind the Chateau, right on Lake Louise.

Rocky Mountain Food and Wine Festival

The third annual Rocky Mountain Food & Wine Festival is returning to Banff on Friday May 7th and Saturday May 8th, 2010. Enjoy some fantastic wine, port, scotch, beer and other premium spirits, along with delicious food samples prepared by Banff restaurants and hotels. My favourite part of this festival are the cheese samples that The Bison has given out at past festivals....loves their old Cheddar :)

The hotel has a Rocky Mountain Food and Wine Package that includes two night’s accommodation, a Canadian Rockies Continental Breakfast daily, passes to relax in the Banff Hot Springs and entry to either the afternoon or evening tasting sessions at the Banff Rocky Mountain Food & Wine Festival. This year the tasting sessions take place Friday May 7th from 7-10pm, Saturday May 8th from 2-5pm and Saturday May 8th from 7-10pm. Please call the Banff Aspen Lodge at 1-877-886-8857 to make your reservation: tickets to the tasting sessions are limited.

FYI that the Food and Wine tickets included in our package give admission to the tasting hall. You do have to purchase the Festival Sampling Coupons separately at the Grand Tasting Hall for the actual food and wine samples.

Looking forward to seeing all the foodies and wine lovers at the Festival :)
