A Depressed? The ancients had a remedy which save
them a new vision ... a truer perspective. They
"lifted up their eyes to the mountains". People from all
parts of the world have been visiting and coming back to the
Canadian Rockies for years and proving the wisdom of the
ancients. Who could not be impressed by the majesty of
these sky-piercing, snow-peaked mountains, and invigorated
by the exhilarating air?

g The Canadian Rockies are too well known to call for detailed description-
even if that were possible. Suffice it to say that they form one of the most
remarkable mountain regions of the world. Composed of some five ranges, they
offer nearly 650 miles of magnificent scenery—snowy peaks, glaciers, rugged precipices, waterfalls, foaming torrents, canyons and lakes like vast sapphires and
amethysts set in the spruce-clad mountains. In the heart of this vast mountain
empire, in one of the world's most impressive settings, stands Banff Springs
Hotel, known today as the summer home of North American Society. From
Scotland's baronial castles this vast structure drew its inspiration, and regally
adorns its setting. Warm sulphur and clear crystal swimming pools adjoin it.
An 18-hole, marvellously achieved, golf course stretches away from its doors.
Fast tennis courts flank it and in the rear are stables for gaited horses and corrals
for mountain ponies—for riding is one of the major events at Banff. There is
evcrr sports device to suit the tastes of the 20th century. Banff Springs Hotel

Valley of the Bow
Main Street, Banff
$ What a thrill as your car swings up the mountain road
and sweeps into the great stone courtyard of Banff
Springs Hotel. Here, less than a generation ago, the red
men danced around tribal camp fires. Today the pale
face comes in thousands to a great modern hostelry. The
hotel stands at the confluence of the Bow and Spray rivers
amid a circle of pearly grey peaks—in a veritable "Valley of
the Gods". Mention has been made of the sports facilities.
To these should be added the joys of riding and hiking along
fir-scented trails in the cool sweet mountain air, meeting
colorful characters, scarlet-coated "mounties" and rolling-
gaited cowboys . . . fishing for cut-throat trout, or canoeing
along shady streams. Nature has been very prodigal in her
gifts and man has opened up roads for their better enjoyment. As a consequence motoring is a favorite diversion
in the Rockies and nowhere else do even the shortest trips
pay such handsome returns as in this Valley of the Gods.
A corner of Banff Springs
Hotel courtyard a At the hotel there is entertainment all the time. One
could be perfectly happy just
looking out towards the enclosing mountains, watching the
swimmers, swimming oneself,
playing tennis, or studying the
cosmopolitan types which one
meets at this great caravansary.
There is an excellent Turkish
bath at the hotel, popular with
those who come in after a game
of golf or an hour in the saddle.
The spacious, luxurious lounges
invite one to a contented laziness. There may be an orchestra playing somewhere, and, in
the evening when Banff, the
mountains and the winding Bow
are bathed in moonlight, the
strains of dance music float out
from the ballroom. Should you
care, however, to learn something of the formation of the
mountains or the wild life in
which they abound, or of the
flowers which grow in such
profusion, there are lecturers
who give informal talks once or
twice a week. There is always
something new—something different to do . . . with never a
dull moment.
a Banff Springs Hotel has two swimming pools—a beautiful
outdoor pool filled with health-giving, warm sulphur water,
and a cool, indoor fresh-water pool—ideal for an invigorating
plunge. Both pools are well suited to the beginner as well as to
the more  proficient, and expert instructors are in attendance.
£ Adjoining the pools is a spacious lawn overlooking the Valley
of the Bow. Here the swimmers relax in the crystalline
Alpine air, tanning themselves or chatting with golfers, riders or
tennis players back from their pursuits. Afternoon tea and other
light refreshments are served under spreading sunshades. \

A Indian Days at Banff is one of the most colorful
spectacles on the North American continent.
Between three and four hundred Stoney Indians
come from the Morley reserve, 40 miles east of Banff,
for their tribal sports. Each morning there is a parade in which the majority of the Indians take part.
The tribe is all mounted, many splendid horses being
used, the chiefs resplendent in gorgeous trappings
and head-pieces. Braves and squaws wear creations
of white buckskin, beadwork and ermine, and they
ride with dignity and poise.
CALGARY STAMPEDE—Another frontier-day
celebration is the annual Stampede held each year
at Calgary, the gateway to the Rockies. This is the
largest rodeo of its kind in the world. For a week
the glories of the Old West are revived in a carnival
of frontier sports and contests. Cowboys, Indians,
"mounties" and old-timers are all to be seen at this
western epic—an event which no one should miss.
Full particulars as to the dates of these celebrations may be secured from any Canadian Pacific
agent. :4
^J/\re Played oanjj
You may have heard this remark in your club
9 ... or from some European visitor homeward-
bound on the Empress of Britain: "I've played
Banff". For the course is one of the most perfectly
balanced, most scenically beautiful in the world—
the answer to a golfer's prayer! It is 6,640 yards
long and has a par of 71. It was designed by Stanley
Thompson who sympathized with the frailties of the
"average" golfer and provided three sets of tees
for each hole, thus furnishing in reality three courses
—long, medium and short. The "nineteenth hole"
is a superb new club house admirably situated on
the banks of the river. Competitions are held each
year for the Prince of Wales Cup — an open
event—and the Willingdon Trophy—for which participants play under club handicaps. These two
events are combined in a "Golf Week" which
every golfer should note in his diary. Full information regarding conditions of entry, dates, etc.,
may be obtained from any Canadian Pacific agent.

Riding is popular at Lake Louise
Hikers off for adventure on the high peaks
f| From Banff to Lake Louise is a fine 42-mile motor trip
or one may go by rail. The route is along the Bow
River, crossing a spot that is the favorite haunt of a large herd
of mountain sheep, which in this national park have sanctuary. About 16 miles from Banff a stop is made at Johnston
Canyon—16 miles of inspiring mountain scenery, with the
gaunt grey turrets of Castle Mountain towering ahead. One
can leave the car here and walk up the Canyon—a distance
of about three-quarters of a mile. Johnston Creek dashes
between high rock walls and falls in a series of miniature
cascades which are spanned by tiny rustic bridges. From
Johnston Canyon the road continues to Lake Louise, passing
within view of the Ten Peaks and Mount Temple.
Lake Louise—probably the most perfect gem of scenery in
the known world—bears the liquid music, the soft color notes
of its name, almost into the realm of the visible. Geographically a "cirque Lake"—a deep, steeped walled recess caused
by glacial erosion, nestling 600 feet above the railway on the
far side of a mountain palisade, amidst an amphitheatre of
peaks—it is a dramatic palette upon which the Great Artist
has splashed His most gorgeous hues, a wonderful spectrum
of color. Deepest and most exquisitely colored is the lake
itself, sweeping from rosy dawn to sunset through green,
blue, amethyst and violet, undershot by gold; dazzling white
is the sun-glorified Victoria Glacier, at the farther end;
sombre are the enclosing spruce-clad peaks with cliffs that
drop perpendicularly into the lake; and magnificent are the
stark immensities of the snow-covered peaks that enclose
the picture except for the fleecy blue sky overhead. On the
margin of this perfect lake, in a wonderful Alpine
flower garden, where poppies, violets, columbines, anemones
and sheep laurel slope through terraced lawns to the water's
edge—the Canadian Pacific has placed its great Chateau Lake
Louise, a fireproof, modern and luxurious hotel with accommodation for seven hundred guests.
Across the front of the hotel extends a vast lounge that commands an uninterrupted view of the Lake through beautiful
single pane windows of enormous size. The dining-room,
in the right wing, has the same wonderful windows and
view. From the ballroom in the left wine the Lake may be
seen through the arches of the cloistered terrace. Thus the
visitor may rest, dine and dance without losing sight of the
beauty that attracted him hither.
The Chateau has many attractions. Two fine hard tennis
courts are attached to the hotel, and a boat-house supplies
secure rowing boats and canoes to the many who cannot
resist the magnetism of the clear, blue water. Below the
dining-room and overlooking the lake is an attractively terraced concrete swimming pool filled with heated glacial
water, and with an instructor in attendance. There are also
putting greens and clock golf.

£ Another pearl of the Rockies is Moraine
Lake, 9 miles from Lake Louise at the
end of one of the finest short motor rides in
the mountains. This lovely mountain lake,
exquisitely blue-green in color, lies in the
Valley of the Ten Peaks—a tremendous and
majestic semi-circle that with jagged profile
encircles the eastern and southern end of the
lake. Not one of these peaks is less than
10,000 feet in height—the highest, Mount
Deltaform, is 11,225 feet. Standing off a little,
as a sort of outpost, is the Tower of Babel, an
interesting rock formation of unusual shape.
An extension trip should be made to Consolation Lake, the waters of which contain a
plentiful supply of rainbow, Dolly Varden and
cut-throat trout. At the foot of the lake, where
the creek flows out into the valley, is Moraine
Lake Chalet-Bungalow Camp. The main
building, in its attractive forest setting, contains
a bright living and dining-room. The small,
separate log cabins are near at hand providing sleeping accommodation. The camp
is an admirable centre for trail-riders and
walkers who wish to explore the valley's surroundings and for mountaineers who aspire
to the peaks. The Regal Sport of Mountaineering—

Alpinists on Top of the World
0 The Canadian Rockies present to the mountain climber
one of the most extensive and interesting of the easily
accessible ranges of the world. Not without good cause has the
region been called "Fifty Switzerlands in One" and not without
good reason do noted climbers— and aspirants to the title—
make their way thither from all parts of the world. It has a
splendid variety of climbs suited equally to the seasoned mountaineer and the beginner. Competent Swiss Guides are available at the Hotels whose services should be arranged for as far
in advance as possible. It goes without saying that no climbing
should be undertaken without suitable clothing and equipment.
The Alpine Club of Canada, which numbers over 600 members,
has its headquarters at Banff. Each year it holds a Camp in the
Canadian Rockies and welcomes all who have the ambition to
climb or are in any way interested in the Mountains.

A corner chat at Emerald Lake
Emerald Lake Chalet-Bungalow Camp is
like a Swiss settlement in the Rockies, nestling on the edge of a green jewel-lake!
m Emerald Lake is not only of itself one of the most
popular centres in Yoho National Park—one of the
six magnificent national parks served by the Canadian
Pacific—but also the axis for excursions to other places.
From Field on the Canadian Pacific main line it is seven
miles out by motor to Emerald Lake, by a fine road through
the hush of a scented spruce-forest. Soon you reach
Natural Bridge—an ineffectual effort on the part of nature
to curb the foaming passage of the Kicking Horse by
checking the river bed with boulders. The road becomes
Snow-peak Avenue—because at the end of its straight
cathedral-like avenue can be seen a towering snowcapped mountain.
The superb green of Emerald Lake is almost beyond
Nature's achievement in any other lake in the Rockies.
Tall trees crowd to the water's edge to see their perfect
reflection, and to see inverted in the emerald mirror the
snowy white giants that surround it. Burgess looms at
one end of the Lake . . . while more distant are Wapta,
Michael, President, Carnarvon and Emerald.
Emerald Lake Chalet is built of great squared timbers
fortresslike in their solidity, surrounded by rustic-design
chalets. The settlement now consists of three units—
the original Chalet, the Club House and the bungalows.
The Chalet, recently enlarged, is along Swiss Chalet lines,
with deep overhanging balconies. The Club House is
what its name implies; it is an especial favorite at nights:
either the verandah, with its magnificent sunset and
nlight views, or indoors, where a good floor for danc-
comfortable chairs for lounging, card-tables^a library
d a great log fire provide entertainment tor all. Top—A wayside stop in a day's ride

Emerald Lake has a fair supply
of trout, and its vicinity affords
many charming excursions on
foot or trail. There is a good
trail all around the Lake, which
is the shortest four and a half
miles you've ever walked, and
perhaps the loveliest; and
another to Hamilton Falls. A
boat-house provides skiffs for
water excursions.
One of the finest trips from
Emerald Lake, on the back of a
sturdy, sure-footed mountain
pony, is to the Summit—the pass
leading into the Yoho Valley.
The return journey can be made
in four hours afoot or by pony,
but many people prefer to make
it an all-day affair. Following
the road to the end of the Lake,
you begin to climb up an
eighteen-hundred-foot treeless
cliff, while more and more of
the world spreads out beneath
you, and Emerald Lake far below grows smaller and greener.
A'last stiff pull and you are over
the top, cantering gaily through
a cool moist forest and then
Summit Lake or Yoho Lake,
green like Emerald but not so
large, flashes into the clearing.

0 A Chalet-Bungalow Camp consists of a central chalet,
with dining-room and lounge, surrounded by comfortable
sleeping cabins. While such camps are less formal than the
hotels, they have modern conveniences such as electric light
and running water.
Wapta Camp (station—Hector, B.C.) near the Great Divide
stands on the edge of Lake Wapta, the principal source of the
Kicking Horse River. From Wapta Lake O'Hara Camp is
conveniently reached by trail, (8 miles). There is also another
new trail (12 miles) from Lake Louise. O'Hara is considered
by some the fairest jewel in the Rockies' crown and won the
undying affection of John Singer Sargent. Yoho Valley Camp,
situated within sight of Takakkaw Falls, well merits its name—
for Yoho was the Cree exclamation of wonder. Radium Hot
Springs Camp on the Banff-Windermere Highway is known
for the curative properties of its waters. Of Moraine Lake, near
Lake Louise, mention has already been made.

For those who wish to get off the beaten path
® and explore the innermost secrets of the
mountains, there are two attractive organizations
which extend a hearty welcome to newcomers.
One is the "Trail Riders of the Canadian
Rockies," the other "The Sky Line Trail Hikers
of the Canadian Rockies." The names of the
orders describe their purpose. The former has
been in existence for nine years and numbers
some 1,500 members drawn from every Province
of the Dominion and every State of the Union in
addition to many visitors from overseas. The
latter is of more recent but no less vigorous growth.
Bother are international in scope, knowing neither
"creed, color nor profession." In the ranks of
both are men and women, young and old, who
have a true appreciation of the beauty of the
mountains and the wild life and flowers which
abound there. They are graded hierarchies,
these orders—distinctive buttons showing the
mileage ridden beingaward ed in the case of the
Trail Riders, while silver bands on the hiker's
alpenstock denote his rating. Annual trail rides
and trail hikes are held and glorious gatherings
they are . . . with carefully planned itineraries
and much informal fun. Information may be
obtained from any Canadian Pacific agent or
at the hotels and chalet-bungalow camps.

Swiss Guides9 Rates
Swiss Guides are men thoroughly experienced in mountain climbing, gained by years of service in the Swiss Alps
and latterly in the Canadian Rockies. They were engaged
in Switzerland and placed in the Canadian Rockies some
years ago by the Canadian Pacific Railway, to guide
patrons desiring to climb in the Rockies and requiring the
services of expert climbers. The Swiss village, " Edelweiss,"
has been established one mile west of Golden, as their
permanent residence.
During the season the Guides' headquarters are at
