   1(esort Hotels in the Canadian Ityckies
Offer 'Decided %ate Sconomies
[OUNTAIN Peaks at Valley Prices/' may well be the slogan of the
Canadian Pacific Resort Hotels during 1933, for very noticeable reductions
have been made in the rates at Banff Springs Hotel, Chateau Lake Louise and Emerald
Lake Chalet. Vacationists seeking a locale that combines recreation, comfort and convenience
in a scenic setting unparalleled the world over will find these resorts in the Canadian Rockies
foremost in appeal . . . and at the new low 1933 prices a vacation in this region can be made
economical indeed.
From the Pacific Coast States, fine highways lead into
this magnificient territory through several central points
of entry. Once in the Rockies, the same excellent roads
prevail and a vacation by motor is a succession of delightful thrills —whether one is enroute or stopping off at one
of the famous Resort Hotels or Chalet-Bungalow Camps.
In addition to the three Resort Hotels named above,
the Palliser Hotel at Calgary is a distinct part of a
complete motor tour of the Rockies. Each of these hotels
and resorts is strategically located to appeal to the
motorist, and each affords much opportunity for its
guests' recreation and pleasure.
Banff Springs Hotel is a magnificient hostelry in the
heart of the Banff National Park, backed by three splendid mountain ranges. The hot springs here are among the
most important on the American continent. Alpine climbing, swimming, golf on a magnificent championship
course, tennis, fishing, boating, horseback riding and
hiking are among the diversions that Banff affords.
Chateau Lake Louise, on Lake Louise, Alberta, is
another hotel of metropolitan magnificience, facing an
exquisite Alpine lake in the same district as Banff. Here
may be found Alpine climbing with Swiss guides, pony
trips or walks to several points of interest, horseback
riding, swimming, boating and fishing.
Emerald Lake Chalet, located near Field, British
Columbia, is at the foot of Mt. Burgess in Yoho National
Park. Roads and trails from this charming Chalet hotel
lead to Burgess Pass, Yoho Valley and other neighboring
scenic points. Boating and fishing may be enjoyed on
Emerald Lake.
The Hotel Pallister, at Calgary, Alberta, is a handsome hotel that caters to the motorists enroute to or from
the Canadian Rockies. Calgary is known particularly for
its fine golf courses and its interesting scenic attractions,
and a day or two spent here with the Palliser as head-
headquarters is always enjoyed by tourists.
In each of these Resorts and Hotels, Canadian Pacific service, cuisine, and standards
assure complete enjoyment for every guest, and the reduced rates for 1933
promise   an   added   economy   certain   to   be   appreciated
