• Twenty years ago, Mike Wiegele and some friends started the Tour de Blue, a 320-mile bi­cy­cle trip from Banff to Blue River. At age 79, Wiegele still rides it ev­ery sum­mer as a way to get into shape for ski sea­son.

• Din­ner starts at 6 p.m. and apps can go fast if there are large groups in town. But don’t start load­ing your plate be­fore the bell rings, or you may get rep­ri­manded.

• Lunch is all about homemade soup, com­ple­ments of head chef Jimmy Mcder­mott, a fine skier orig­i­nally from Ire­land.
