Banff still has a lot to offer

The world famous Alberta town of Banff has been in the news a lot lately. The town was hit by a freak summer snowfall last week (it’s all since melted, of course) which of course delighted some American tourists, who had their worst suspicions about Canada confirmed. Banff is also at a turning point in terms of tourism development, with warring factions fighting to determine what the town (and the park) will look like in the future.

In the meantime, Banff remains a great vacation spot, summer or winter. If you’re interested in visiting one of Canada’s national treasures, point you’re web browser at, where you’ll find virtually every thing you ever need to know about the mountain paradise.
