Canada's highest-elevation restaurant, the Eagle's Eye towers above the new Kicking Horse Resort. Diners take the ski gondola 1,200m (3,936 ft.) up to 2,410m (7,905 ft.) above sea level to reach this dining room with a 360-degree view of the nearby Rocky, Selkirk, and Purcell mountain ranges (with confirmed reservations, you'll ride the gondola up and back for free). With a panorama like this, the food needn't be good; it's excellent, however, with an emphasis on Alberta lamb and beef, British Columbia salmon and oysters, and seasonal specials like pistachio-crusted halibut with truffled potatoes. A three-course table d'hôte menu is available for C$49 (US$49/£25). Sunday brunch is C$25 (US$25/£13).
