Beautiful Scenery
Only one lift has foot rests

Full review

The resort is beautiful, but it is not very customer service oriented. For example, other than the gondola, only one lift has foot rests. The rest just wear out your thighs on the slow trip up the mountain. Also, the attitude of the staff at the Sunshine Burger Company (on March 20th, 2017) had much to be desired. They were not busy and very unfriendly early. I asked to speak to the manager, who was too busy to deal with any complaint, so I posted it here for the world to see instead. Do yourself a favor: Head over to Lake Louise instead. Better food, friendlier staff, foot rests on most all of the lifts, and better marked trails. The grooming at Lake Louise is much better too!
