Tucked in off the Trans Canada Hwy, this resort offers superb views, being tucked in a valley between the mountains - the views are spectular at all times of the day. Chalet is comfortable with all appliances (big and small) provided - only have to supply groceries and beverages, which can be obtained in Canmore, just 15 minutes away -... More

My husband and I stayed here Sept 17-24. Though the cabin is rustic, it suited our needs perfectly. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen well-equipped. It's far enough from Canmore to be quiet but close enough for a short drive in to enjoy the town. The resort has an indoor pool, hot tub and sauna room which we thoroughly... More

We have been coming here for 23 years. It is a timeshare resort that, unfortunately, fell on hard times due to an unscrupulous manager who pocketed the maintenance fees in favour of the upkeep of the resort. The flood that hit the area a couple of years ago also increased costs to pay for a number of repairs. So, if... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Banff Gate Mountain Resort is an outdoor playground for all ages where mountain activities and rustic amenities meet. It is nestled in the majestic pines of Pigeon Mountain at the foot of the Lougheed and Windtower Mountains. Our 46 fully appointed chalets are surrounded by Lake Louise and the adventures of the Banff National Park. Activities include water rafting, hiking, skiing, mountain biking, dog sledding, golf and more. For those preferring more peace and quiet, the picturesque grounds of the resort provide the perfect retreat. Children’s play areas are intertwined by hiking trails that sprawl throughout the resort connecting to the surrounding wilderness. Local wildlife often wanders unhindered throughout the area and across the property. An indoor heated pool, hot tubs and a family clubhouse provide a well-rounded travel destination for families and adventurers alike. ... more   less
