Done In a Day Banff
If you want a guidebook that's not just informative, but lively, you'll be glad you have Done in a Day Banff while hiking in Banff National Park.
Here's how the authors of Done in a Day Banff describe Citadel Pass:
"The impact of skimming a heli-hiking brochure is double-barreled. First the photos. Then the price list. Both are breathtaking. But for those of us lacking hockey socks full of money, there's an alternative. An affordable way to be whisked up a mountain and begin hiking above timberline, in a see-forever alpine meadow. Simply catch the shuttle to the ski area at Sunshine Village, where the trail to Citadel Pass offers maximal scenery in return for minimal elevation gain. It's an idyllic hike through country that does a believable imitation of heaven, unless you're here during a thunderstorm. The meadows sprawl for 15 km (9 mi) near the crest of the Continental Divide."
Here's how the authors of Done in a Day Banff begin their description of Tunnel Mountain:
"Purists look down their noses at Banff townsite as if it were a cancerous growth. It is too big, crowded and commercial, considering it's in a national park. But Banff still has charm. The setting is exquisite. Looking down your nose at it from the nearby summit of Tunnel Mtn is a fun, easy way to appreciate it."
