The Story of CRMR Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts (CRMR) is an innovative family company dedicated to providing world-class dining, hospitality and service to visitors from around the world. CRMR offers three well-appointed, rustic mountain lodges in the Canadian Rockies - Buffalo Mountain Lodge in Banff, Emerald Lake Lodge in Field, and Deer Lodge in Lake Louise - as well as three restaurants in Calgary - Cilantro, The Lake House and The Loft Bakery, Kitchen and Lounge. Each lodge and restaurant offer exquisite dining choices and boutique wines. CRMR’s commitment to providing quality culinary experiences is evident throughout our lodges as well as in the city of Calgary. Each lodge and restaurant embrace their own interpretation of Canadian Rocky Mountain Cuisine, using the finest locally-sourced ingredients including bison and elk raised on our own Canadian Rocky Mountain Ranch located 30 minutes SW of Calgary. Complementing the cuisine, boutique wines can be found at one of Calgary’s premier wine shops, Bin 905. For those who would like to recreate the CRMR dining experience in their own kitchen, CRMR Kitchen features all natural and locally made products made in small batches by CRMR Chefs. Urban Butcher features these products as well as a variety of naturally and locally raised meats such as bison, elk, beef, lamb, chicken and sustainable seafood. From the earliest days in the 1980’s when we opened Emerald Lake Lodge, we have tried to ensure that the lodges, and restaurants reflect the beauty, the tradition and the excitement of life in Western Canada. We hope your experience with CRMR makes you feel part of the family.

Emerald Lake Lodge When you visit Emerald Lake, you follow in the footsteps of legendary guide Tom Wilson – who discovered this magical location more than one hundred years ago. With its century-old fireplaces and an oak bar salvaged from an 1890’s Yukon saloon, there is no shortage of history within these walls. There is also no shortage of comfort during your stay at Emerald Lake Lodge given the location’s award-winning dining opportunities and exceptional accommodations. Field, BC • crmr.com/emerald
