I've Been to Banff for The Youth Orchestra Symposium
Banff Centre for the Arts and Banff township from an early morning hike on Tunnel Mountain. No military events of any type (unless you consider Man vs. Nature, Cougar vs. Elk or Snowboarder's face vs Snowbank), and the closest thing to military architecture is Castle Mountain.
My wife and I organized a 4 day trip for mys daughter's youth orchestra and I was head chaperon. Two SSYO has 62 members aged 11-23 with 8 parents plus conductor and assistant music director. We left 7:15am on Thursday and returned at 4:30am on Monday. Great trip with great kids and a great final concert. And heck 4 days in Banff will do anybody a world of good.
