Offsite venues: Banff's Mt. Norquay and the Lake Louise Ski Resort have recently revamped their group and event space offering at both resort base lodges and mid-mountain and mountaintop venues. In Lake Louise, the sight- seeing gondola ride to view natural wildlife can be combined with a buy-out at the recently renovated Whitehorn Lodge complete with scenic wraparound views from the terrace.

One-of-a-kind views and delectable cuisine from the Cliffhouse can be savoured from June to October.
