We were told before going there that the Lake Louise would be a tear drop. We did see it. Fascinating! A buffet lunch included, nice! Didn't get to see bears that's okay. Wonderful experience.

A big step up from the old exposed slatted chairs. Unfortunately we didn't get to see the bears photographed by the summer visitors but we were happy to soak in the views whilst protected from the elements.
