Nestling 5,680 feet above sea level, amidst an
amphitheatre of peaks, Lake Louise is probably
the finest gem of scenery in the world. 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; and majestic are the encircling spruce-clad, snow-capped peaks. On the
margin of this perfect lake, in a wonderful
Alpine flower garden, stands the Chateau Lake
Louise, a fireproof, modern hotel. From the
lounge, dining room, and the ball room, the
visitor may rest, dine and dance without losing
sight of the lake. There are many attractions
at the Chateau—swimming in the sparkling
glass-enclosed pool, dancing, boating, tennis,
riding, and exploring the many fascinating
trails. European plan rates are as low as $6.50
per day for a single room, and $10.00 per day for
a double room. The Chateau is open from
June 12 to September 13, 1937. Reduced rates
for longer stays.

A Lodge in the Canadian Rockies 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, running water, and a homely charm of their own.
Wapta Lodge (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 Lodge 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
unstinted affection of John Singer Sargent. Yoho Valley Lodge, situated
within sight of Takakkaw Falls, well merits its name—for Yoho was the
Cree Indian's exclamation of wonder. Radium Hot Springs Lodge on the
Banff-Windermere Highway is known for the curative properties of its
waters. Moraine Lake is located in the majestic Valley of the Ten Peaks.
Mount Assiniboine Lodge (owned by Mr. Erling Strom) is reached by several
trail routes from Banff (35 miles), with overnight stop at a half-way cabin.
