STORYBOOK SETTING
The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

Words cannot do justice to this majestic Canadian Rocky Mountain setting, which has miraculously remained unspoiled — despite over a century of visitors. It's a storybook alpine escape.

The Fairmont Banff Springs
CASTLE IN THE CANADIAN ROCKIES
The Fairmont Banff Springs

If you build it, they will come. Few places offer better proof of this than The Fairmont Banff Springs. It rises out of its hypnotic mountain backdrop like a Scottish baronial Oz! Sitting at the intersection of three glacial valleys, its architecture is awe-inspiring and its overall style is classic European.

TRAVEL

EXTREME SKIING
Canadian Mountain Holidays

These days, once you’ve mastered the black diamond runs, there’s nowhere to go but up — into the clouds in a helicopter, to be dropped off in an awesome and otherwise inaccessible destination. Once there, you’ll confront crevasses, cliff drops and sheer slopes as you ski your way back to civilization.

SPAS

Clean and Calm
Liv Spa

The modern spa feels comfortable rather than cool and larger than its 8,000-square-foot facility with its 9 to 10-foot ceilings, earth tones, deep woods, dark tiles, grey stone countertops, off-white walls and frosted glass panels. Splashes of the spa's signature blue add a distinctive note of color.
