 ;-      :,^;.;:■;.- CHATEAU LAKE LOUISE
A French-style chateau on the edge of a glittering, jade-
green lake ... elegance and style in the midst of rugged
splendour... here is an absorbing discovery in your
search for the unusual in great resort hotels.
You approach Lake Louise on the Trans-Canada Highway
from Calgary or Vancouver. Sheltered by the Pipestone
Range of the Canadian Rockies, the great hotel faces
south, spreading its wings to catch the sun from the
glacier-formed lake and from the sparkling snowcap of
Victoria Glacier beyond. All the hotel's public rooms face
LAKE LOUISE, ALBERTA
this tranquil lovely view. All 400 bedrooms face either
the Lake or the peaks of the Pipestone Range.
Gardens of brilliant Iceland poppies dance in the sun near
the glass-screened, heated swimming pool... below the
loggia, terraced gardens lead to the lake's edge. Around
the Lake hiking paths and riding trails wander to hidden
beauty spots with romantic names — Lakes of the Clouds
... Plain of Six Glaciers. Chateau Lake Louise is a
vacationer's dream.
Open early June to early September BANFF SPRINGS
HOTEL
BANFF, ALBERTA
Who says that castle hotels exist only in Europe?
Turn west at Calgary—or east from Vancouver—and
skim up the wide smooth Trans-Canada Highway into
Banff National Park. Follow the turbulent course of
the Bow River through the mountain town of Banff
and there—there is your castle ... turreted, green-
roofed, romantic in Scottish baronial style ... Banff
Springs Hotel, 600 rooms of luxurious retreat.
And what a castle! From your lookout (any of the
inviting guest rooms), you can view the breathtaking
scenery. Sulphur Mountain to the west, a green giant
of a mountain soaring beyond its fir and pine timber-
Your playground:
On top of the world
High in the grandeur of the Canadian Rockies this
gem-like hotel is surrounded by nature's own playground. In the twenty-five hundred square miles of
Banff National Park you'll find a dozen ways to spend
your days...a dozen famous views or hidden beauty
spots to reach by car, on hikes or walks, on horseback up well-marked trails.
You'll see Sulphur Mountain and its natural hot
springs .. .Tunnel Mountain ... the Hoodoos ... Lake
Minnewanka ... the Buffalo Paddock ... Johnson's
Canyon ... the Valley of the Ten Peaks ... Moraine
Lake ... the Yoho Valley ... the Columbia Icefield.
You'll fish, swim, boat, play tennis and challenge
the championship golf course against a backdrop of
towering peaks and Alpine flowers.
You'll sleep deep at night in Banff's nerve-restoring
quiet, cool and clear mountain air.
line; lawns, flowers and the Bow River Valley to the
east. Outside, everything is rugged splendour; inside,
everything is elegance and well-appointed comfort.
That's the charm of Banff Springs Hotel.
If you like to watch the sunrise astride a hardy
mountain pony or swim with delight in an emerald
outdoor pool, Banff has both for you. Dining on
connoisseur food in two luxurious dining rooms...
dancing to a gay orchestra in the Cascade Ballroom
... waited on by a well-trained Canadian Pacific
hotel staff—your stay at this mile-high castle in the
Canadian Rockies will be a storybook affair.

in the sun... playing shuffleboard.. .refreshing your eyes with the eternally fresh and brilliant view. Below the Terrace,
the emerald pool is fringed with green lawns and tall trees. The intense blue of the clear mountain water invites you to explore

below the flower-filled Terrace, the emerald outdoor
