Visiting Banff

Apparently we are visiting Banff next year. Probably for Christmas.

Any advice on restaurants, things off the beaten path, etc...?

Should I bring a jacket? Will linen pants be acceptable?

You can buy a Canada goose jacket there. Wth are linen pants? Wear some dam jeans. You could go skiing or ride the gondola up sulphur mountain. There's the hotsprings if you don't mind a crowded pool. Try the grizzly house for some good eats but reserve a table.

We get Canadian geese here in the winter. I will kill and pluck some.

Linen pants are the preferred pants of choice for fashionable men who live in warm coastal communities.


I will probably climb the mountain and plant a MAGA flag at the top. Who's going to stop me? Canada? LMAO.

Check airbnb for places to stay. Much better places than the standard hotels.

They should stay at the haunted hotel.

Ya, Grizzly House is an experience. Just don't plan to go out after. You stink like fondue.

Maple Leak Grill is a great place to eat if you don't want to smell like fondue.

Rimrock is the best hotel. Cheaper then the Banff Springs and built into a mountain where the lobby is on top of the hotel.

Gonna need a wind breaker

Fairmont. 

Check out Moraine Lake. Nicest lake Ive ever seen in my life. There are lots of hiking trails around there too if you wanna spend a few hours hiking. 

 

Also take the gondola up to the top. Its a bit pricey but the view is amazing. Take the little hike up to the old fire warden station up there. Make sure you take a jacket, it can be a 5 or 10 degree difference up there.

If you want to go for a drive take Highway 93 north from Banff. Theres lots of little stops and lookouts that are obviously free and nice to just relax at and take in the views. We booked a trip up on a glacier at the Columbia Ice Fields too. Call ahead and book one of those if that interests you. They drive you up on top of a glacier on a huge bus lookin thing thats pretty sweet. Its located about 90 minutes north of Banff on highway 93.

 

If its really expensive for places to stay when you go you can always stay in Canmore too. Thats where we normally stay. Its a 40 minute drive or so up to banff from there.

 

Hope some of this helps. 

 

Enjoy!!!

One of the biggest resorts there was accidentally built backwards, facing the forest instead of the beautiful mountains.

"Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel's Famous Beginnings

Interestingly, the hotel was built backwards, with the back-of-the-house positioned to enjoy the best views. After someone realized they had been reading the blueprints in reverse, adjustments were made and the hotel was repositioned."

Thanks for the info, much appreciated.

Beautiful beautiful area. Enjoy!

Rim Rock is nice but Banff springs hotel is something else. 

That would be nice if you got lost in the mountains and died.

Unicorns live in Banff.

 

I thought unicorn was so extinct.

 

 

Definitely take the gondola ride up to the top of Mount Sulphur......smoke a fatty on the way up, and when you get to the top, jump over the fence and hike along the ridge toward the left (not the tourist path to the right), and when you get close to the next peak, you will see this cool ledge overhang facing the backside of the mountain, looking over that glorious valley below..........grab a seat on that rock ledge, and wait for the marmot..........he will show. I was on acid when I dod this, but that marmot came to me, and we spoke for what seemed like an hour, him in whistle tones.........me in gibberish. It wasn't until I returned to the cabin where the locals who I was staying with, and spoke of my adventure, did I learn that it was not a black and white badger, it was a marmot. Until that day, I'd never heard of such a creature. In hindsight, I sure am glad it wasn't a badger, because I was definitely fucked up enough to think we could have been friends.

Solo acid adventures in grizzly country........highly recommended.
