TripAdvisor Popularity Index

According to the TripAdvisor Popularity Index, the Banff Aspen Lodge is currently rated 6 out of 32 hotels to stay at in Banff. This is something that I am clearly VERY proud of and like to brag about :)

Here is a note from Kathleen, a guest who stayed with us last week:

"I wanted to thank you again for arranging for me to stay at the Banff Aspen Lodge while I was visiting Banff. I was put in one of the newly renovated rooms and it was beautiful. I think that the bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in. As well, the breakfast was the perfect start to my day. Thank you again!"

Thanks for your kind words Kathleen, I am glad you were able to stay with us. By June 1st, 60% of our guestrooms will be renovated and the rest will be done by the end of 2010. When making your reservation, please request a renovated room and we will do our best to accommodate this~

Lake Louise Ski Area: Something Happening in all Seasons~

I was lucky to attend the Lake Louise Ski Area End of Season Party at the beginning of May and had an awesome day. The snow on the backside of the mountain was really great and I was able to enjoy some food and drink with friends while listening to some live music.



In the summer time the Lake Louise Gondola is still open and is transformed into the Lake Louise Sightseeing Gondola & Interpretive Centre. It is a gorgeous sightseeing area where you have the chance to see many different wild animals, including the Grizzly Bear.

Your visit begins with a 14 minute ride up a fully enclosed gondola which brings you to the top of the mountain. At 6850 feet you can enjoy the views of the wildflowers, natural springs and hopefully some wildlife! Interpretive Programs are available at the top of the mountain and include theme guided walks; other hikes are also an option if you want. There is a Wildlife Interpretation Centre to help you learn all about the area's history and appreciate where you are exploring.

The hotel's two day "Discover Banff and Lake Louise" package includes a ride up the Lake Louise gondola; have a look at http://www.banffaspenlodge.com/u/specials.phtml

Banff Rated as Top Canadian Outdoor & Adventure Destination

TripAdvisor has announced their annual Travelers' Choice Best Destination Awards and Banff National Park was ranked as the top Canadian outdoor & adventure destination. BNP also came fourth as the top 10 outdoor & adventure destinations in the World!

What makes Banff so awesome? There is always something amazing going on in every season; skiing, ice walks, snow shoeing, ice climbing, ice skating, mountain biking, white water rafting, incredible hiking, climbing, and so much more. One of the bests thing about Banff is that on some days in the spring and fall , you can go skiing for a few hours in the morning and then go for a mountain bike ride in the afternoon...making Banff the best of both worlds :)

Congratulations to everyone who made this possible; a lot of work goes on behind the scenes to keep Banff National Park this amazing and protected area. These two awards are such an honour to receive and we should all be so proud of this accomplishment.

And clearly a special thank you also goes out to the animals in the park who we rely on to keep things interesting for the rest of us humans :)
