Really only one worth a visit, MEC (Mountain Equipment Coop)...go on line to get their address, directions...it will look and feel exactly like REI....Canmore and Banff will be much more expensive to shop....Valhalla and Verticle Addiction in Canmore are horrible, service and price....exclusively here for the unaware climbing tourist $$$....Mountain Magic in Banff is much better, but still way too expensive..."Source" water bladder there costs $33 vs $12 at MEC, exact same thing except Deuter does the distribution instead of MEC. Keep in mind that if you are coming from the US, gear is much cheaper there. Very few manufactures, Mammut on ropes for example, will give you as good a deal in Canada. The premium on all boots, climbing shoes or running shoes is about 30% -35% across the board, where the exchange benefit is only 10%. Most clothes are the same way unless MEC is placing their name on them (they have negotiated certain deals with certain manufacturers to offer a knock off basically). There are several places where this inequitable pricing is blatant on line, Toyota vehicles, Oakley sunglasses....etc. Some of these web sites allow you to customize your item at .ca and com.....side by side....there you will see a marked premium charged Canadians, way over the 10% beneficial exchange rate. All electronics cost 25-40% more in Canada. Cheers.
