Executive chef Mike Gerlach’s cooking pleases all. Event meals (like on Mother’s Day) are a specialty. SandTraps has the capacity to cater groups up to 500 people.

Atmosphere & Accolades

This newly renovated restaurant has arguably the best view in town. From the secluded three-tier patio with awning (voted best in Canmore by local newspaper readers) and through the dining room’s huge windows is a 240° panorama of the Rundle Range, Three Sisters and water-protected 9th green. There’s a vaulted ceiling, big rock fireplace and glass wall that opens to the deck.


Local musicians play the Summer Music Series some evenings (listed online).
