About Istvan and Wendy
About Istvan I was brought up in Transylvania in Europe with many many big mountains. In 1980’s, I moved to Calgary, Canada and found that Rocky Mountains were so close to my house. I spent a lot time with my family to do many outdoor activities in Canadian Rockies over past decades. I had a dream to have a cozy space nearby mountains at that time. My dream comes true today. I really would like to share my feels with all travelers who come to Canadian Rockies: Love the mountains! I love outdoor activities in the Rockies : - downhill skiing - cross-country skiing - ice climbing - mountaineering - snowshoeing - camping - scuba diving in the mountain lakes About Wendy I was brought up in a warm place outside Canada and only saw snow every a few years. In 1990’s, I came to Alberta as an international student. In the first Christmas holiday season in Alberta, a group of local volunteers invited new students including me to the Banff National Park to experience Canadian Rockies. They let me tasting cross country ski, skating and curling which I had never been exposed before. With encouragement from many local friends, I learnt a few winter sports like downhill ski, cross country ski, and ice climbing. I enjoy hiking in the mountains as well. My real love is to do photography in the Rockies over past decades. I have a cozy space near the mountains today and will spend more time to enjoy the Rockies. I would like to share my experience with all travelers who come to Canadian Rockies: Reach the Mountains!
Istvan and Wendy purchased this Condo in 2018
Why Istvan and Wendy chose Canmore
In January 2018, we stumbled upon this unique Vacation Home suite at Blackstone Mountain Lodge in Canmore, and we immediately knew that it was our dream vacation home. We enjoy staying this suite very much after long work weekdays in the urban environment. We are adventure travelers and visited many beautiful mountains in the world. We would like to have the great pleasure of sharing our Rocky Mountain home with many friends, family, and travelers in the world.
What makes this Condo unique

Check out the list of upcoming events 2018 from this link: http://www.tourismcanmore.com/event-calendar/2018/03 If you like hiking, please challenge the Ha Ling Peak. We once reached the peak by taking three hours from the trial in the back of the mountain. Boating in Lake Minnewanka in the summer is very nice. This glacial lake located in the eastern area of Banff National Park is the longest and deepest lake in the park. If you like ice climbing in the winter, Johnson Canyon is one of many places to go. Our most favor winter sport is downhill ski at the ski resorts of Sunshine, Lake Louise and Kicking Horse with 30, 60, 90 minutes driving distance, respectively.
