As advertised, the Lake Louise Gondola provided a great sighting of a mother grizzly bear and her two cubs just on the other side of a protective fence. Great vista views from the top as well.

We went up here to see the sights and wildlife. Now we did see a Momma Bear and two cubs which was nice but it was windy. The views are very nice but it is a very expensive ride to see the range.
