' After years of tension and informality the
world is turning again to the gracious in
life—soft lights, muted violins, the sense of
well-being engendered by formal clothes.
But it still desires the virile life to which
it has become accustomed. In the famous
Canadian Pacific resorts, Banff Springs
Hotel and Chateau Lake Louise, both
desires can be attained.
Outdoors in the Canadian Rockies life can
be rugged as you wish. Indoors, gracious
living, with all the refinements of an
intelligent civilization, comes naturally
in settings designed for dignified luxury.

LEONARD RICHMOND, R.O.I., R. B.A., NOTED BRITISH LANDSCAPE PAINTER, HAS CAUGHT THE SPIRIT OF BANFF AND THE
BOW VALLEY IN THE PAINTING REPRODUCED ON THE COVER. BANFF SPRINGS HOTEL AND THE BOW  RIVER VALLEY
Banff Springs Hotel
Heart of the mountains from which it was quarried,
Banff Springs Hotel dominates a highland barony. Majestic
and stately in appearance, it radiates hospitality.
Nobly proportioned, its halls, dining rooms, parlours, library,
and ball-rooms are gracious settings for fashionable gowns
and gleaming shirt-fronts.
Every suite, every bed-room, commands a panorama of
mountain and valley, of golf course and riding trail—each itself
an integral part of the unforgettable scenery. Gallery
Reminiscent of a leisured, luxurious, earlier day,
Mount Stephen Hall is the scene of many a brilliant
gathering. Here, after a day of mountain informality
on the trail, in the saddle, or the warmed faintly
sulphured swimming pool, "white-ties", dinner-jackets
and creations of famous couturiers lend colour to the
formal Gothic architecture.
Chamber music and song, bright conversation, life in
its most gracious aspects—these typify this
magnificent room, its cloister walk and grilled gallery. p
Every holiday activity, driving, mountain-climbing, riding on
sure-footed mountain ponies, tennis, golf, swimming, sun-bathing,
canoeing, boating, fishing—can be enjoyed during your stay at Banff.
Even at the confluence of the Spray and Bow Rivers, under the very
front windows of the hotel, ardent dry-fly casters sometimes reap
a sporty reward. lillilllili
THE  ALHAMBRA  DINING-ROOM
Many-windowed, high-ceilinged, Spanish in influence and decor, this room is
noted for the cosmopolitan quality of its meals and service. The luxury that
is the keynote of Banff Springs Hotel is well represented in this spacious
room where royal guests have dined. Even in its carefree moments Banff is a
fashion artist's mecca. On the fairways,
the courts or in the pools are to be seen
the smartest in holiday wear.
Water from the natural springs of
well-named Sulphur Mountain, piped in
at just the right temperature, supplies
both indoor and outdoor pools—bright
sunshine and crisp highland air invite
sunbathing.
Bring your tennis racket. In
the shadow of the hotel fast,
well-kept courts cater to all
types of players. And only
two minutes walk from the
courts are the swimming
pools for a freshener after
the game.
- In public or private Banff Springs Hotel
is noted for its appointments. The Ball
Room, gracious as a Regency drawing
room, is a rendezvous of fashion —
mostly formal. Suites, tasteful as private
homes, invite intimate entertainment.
As evening draws in the many public
rooms take their places in the social
scheme. There is chamber music and
song, the quiet of library or reading room,
table tennis for the strenuous, or dancing. "Ace" or "Dub", golfs possibilities are an unknown quantity until you
have played the links at Banff. Designed by Stanley Thompson, the
I8-hole course is a scenic delight—a player's challenge.
The course stretches down the Bow Valley, sheltered by Mount Rundle,
Tunnel Mountain, and overlooked by the "Hoodoos". From the moment
you drive across the purling Spray River until—6704 yards later—
you hole out at the 18th you make new discoveries. And mile-high golf
sharpens the appetite as well as your skill. Luncheon or tea awaits you
in the clubhouse and, on your way back to dress for dinner, you can
stop in for a plunge in the pool.

The true savour of a mountain
holiday is found—ahorse or
afoot—on the trails. Banff
Springs Hotel and Chateau
Lake Louise are radial points for
well-marked, well-kept trails.
Breath-taking views,
little-known wild
flowers, unafraid wild
animals—these are
the treasures that
await the hiker.
For distances too far for horse
or foot—or to conserve time—
plastic-roofed buses cover
interesting itineraries. Full
information is available in
the lobby.
Banff visitors whose
plans include the
Chateau Lake Louise,
may make the 40 mile
trip by bus, visiting
Johnston Canyon
en route.

clear mountain air, the
spice of evergreens climbing to
the timber-line, set the tempo.
Victoria Glacier, unchanging but
ever-different in Nature's
changing moods, broods over
the placid lake. Iceland poppies,
Alpine rock gardens and
imported grasses beckon the
lazy. Sturdy, steady, mountain
ponies are yours to command.

Lake Louise, colourful and cool as priceless
jade, in a setting of diamond-capped peaks,
is the summit of holiday desires. Here,
Chateau Lake Louise—many-windowed —
subordinates its luxury to mountain
magnificence. Health-giving sun, High-diver, speed-swimmer or leisurely floater—each finds satisfaction
\n the ever-flowing glacial water of the glass-screened pool. Warmed
to 75° the crystal clear water tempts all ages to enjoyment.
The pool terrace-chairs invite spectators and sun-bathers to enjoy the
play of light and shadow on the Glacier, Mount Lefroy, the Mitre,
Mount Fairview, the Beehive.
Boating on the lake, strolling around its jade reflections, pony-riding
over the trails that start at the Chateau—all these things spell
summer at Lake Louise. Perfect setting for leisured hours,
the Chateau Lake Louise lobby is
a friendly place. It welcomes in
informal daylight as warmly as
when its guests don formal attire
with the setting of the sun.
Every room in the Chateau,
public or private, is large-
windowed, warmed, comfortable. Walks—rides—drives—
canoe trips—all lead to
beauty—well-marked,
well-kept trails are
tempting — Swiss guides,
full of Nature lore—
horse-wranglers—
boatmen are available—
wild life—wild flowers—
scenic vistas—all tempt
you to activity, f

The exhilaration of hiking on mountain trails
breeds appetite. Within walking or riding
distance of the Chateau attractive Tea Houses
serve snacks to hungry hikers. At Lake Agnes,
one of twin "Lakes in the Clouds", on the Plain
of the Six Glaciers, at Moraine Lake and Lake
O'Hara rest and refreshment may be found at
reasonable prices. And on the trails, wild
flowers, wild creatures, magnificent scenery
reward the energetic with sights unknown
at lower levels. For real enjoyment
of a mountain hike the company of a
Swiss guide is recommended.
LOVELY  LAKE LOUISE
BOW  LAKE — ICEFIELD HIGHWAY Mountain grandeur, known only to
climbing expeditions until recently, now
awaits Chateau Lake Louise guests.
The Columbia Ice-field, fabulous
confluence of three mighty glaciers, may
be seen by car or plastic-topped bus in a
one-day expedition.
Mighty mountains, thundering falls,
glaciers, moose, elk, bighorn sheep, bears
... all combine in a memorable drive. EMERALD LAKE
