Don't ski? Go for the Foot Pass to ride up the mountain for spectacular views of the Canadian Rockies and Lake Louise. We enjoyed the magnificent vistas and friendly Canadians offered to take our photo with a Lake Louise background.

Beautiful views all around. Make yourself comfortable because it's a nice long ride. We didn't see any wildlife, but the views were terrific. Once you reach the top, the hiking trails are in bear country, so be alert of your surroundings. Also, I recommend you...More
