Restaurant stops

Recommended Posts

I've got some family coming in to town in 10 days, and I was going to take them on a helicopter tour.  We would be starting near Calgary, down towards Lethbridge, Waterton Lakes, then over to Frank, Blairmore, Coleman, then north to Kananaskis before returning home (all weather permitting of course).  I've got some pretty good lunch stops in the Calgary area, but these places are mostly new to my travels.  Anyone have some good stops along the way?  Landing at the Prince of Wales in Waterton would be sweet, but I would hazard to guess Parks or the Hotel would not oblige to the request.  Someone once told me they often land at the helipad in Kananaskis and walk to the hotel.  Anyone with experience in landing there?  I've landed at the pads by the Nakoda Casino, but they have some of the worst food I've experienced.........Thanks in advance!

 

Conversely, if anyone needs some good eating spots near Calgary that are helicopter friendly, I have some in every direction from Calgary!

I'm sure you would have had some response's if you asked where you could get a crap wonder bread sandwich with some stale cookies. (any forestry camp} With what pilots are paid now day's eating out would entail a meal with a crew dressed in yellow nomex. If Nakoda is the worst food you've ever experienced you should try a Saskatchewan forestry tour some time.:D

Thanks Shakey ;-).  As it turns out, we shortened the trip and landed at the Kananaskis Lodge (well close to, we walked the kilometre from the pad).  I'll have to give that Saskatchewan hospitality a shot some time!

I'm envious:D. Sounds like a nice day to spend with family. You're a lucky man but I'm sure more hard working than lucky. Well done.
