Where off-the-beaten path is standard
Welcome to an adventurer’s paradise. Whether it’s your first time to the region or you’re a regular visitor who has long lost count, a pristine, undiscovered wilderness and adrenaline-filled experiences are waiting for you.
Located in southwestern Alberta, visiting the South Canadian Rockies is easy at any time of the year. History runs deep in our Rocky Mountain towns, and our towering mountains provide a four-season playground that lets you go beyond the ordinary. With recreational areas, resorts, parks and natural areas all in close proximity, you can spend more time enjoying and less time driving.
Nordic, cross-country and cat skiing, horseback riding, ice fishing, biking and hiking and more – our lifestyle is built on adventures. Learn about the captivating yet devastating history of places like Frank Slide, the Hillcrest mine and the Burmis Tree, or the legendary tales of rumrunners a century ago. After a memorable day exploring, our authentic mountain communities are ready to welcome you with cozy accommodations, hearty cuisine and a vibrant local arts scene.
