You may be used to visiting the Banff-Lake Louise webcams during the ski season, but some of our nicest views become available during the summer. Each year more than 3 million visitors flock to Banff National Park, and with nearly 20 webcams scattered throughout various ecological zones our three resorts have got some of the best views to be seen.
Mt. Norquay has mounted a webcam overlooking the recently re-opened Cliffhouse Bistro at the top of the North American Chair. Originally a tea house built in the 1950s, the renovated Cliffhouse Bistro overlooks the town of Banff and the majestic Mt. Rundle, and offers unique views of Mt. Cascade, Stoney Squaw and the entire Bow Valley. Take a ride up the chairlift, grab a bite to eat, and enjoy the view. Free shuttles from Banff throughout the day.
The emerald blue waters of Lake Louise, framed by mountains and the Victoria Glacier, is known to be the most iconic image of Banff National Park. The Lake Louise Ski Resort hosts a webcam with this stunning view. Enjoy it in the morning as the sun rise lights the mountains, or in the evening as the sun sets. Better yet, take the summer sightseeing chairlift at the Lake Louise Ski Resort and enjoy the view from even higher up at the Whitehorn Lodge. You might even spot a grizzly bear.
Lonely Planet named Sunshine Meadows the #1 hike in Canada, and it’s not hard hard to see why. The well maintained alpine meadow trails leading to Rock Isle Lake are carpeted with wildflowers from late July through August. White Mountain Adventures offers the Sunshine Meadows Alpine Shuttle throughout the summer.
Check out all our webcams and enjoy the some of the best views that Banff has to offer.
