On Mountain Dining at the Cliffhouse Bistro

High up on Mount Norquay sits a piece of Banff’s history that brings together the very best of past and present. The Cliffhouse Bistro began as a mountaintop gathering place in the 1950s for the brave and bold skiers of the resort’s steepest terrain.

Now turned inviting eatery above the clouds, the Cliffhouse Bistro welcomes explorers fresh off the summer chairlift. History pairs well with the flavours of the mountains in this respectfully restored space. Sip a locally-brewed beer alongside an artisanal charcuterie board and drink in the views from high above Banff.
