Spend a day listening to the fascinating lore of the Canadian Pacific Railway, in particular, the story of the Big Hill and its unique operating problems, spiral tunnels and the locomotives and trains which traversed it. Then on the second day you will visit the Big Hill, starting at Morant’s Curve, east of Lake Louise and working your way back to Field through a series of points of interest, each with its own fascinating history.
