Crowsnest Pass is the ideal destination for those travellers wanting to discover an authentic piece of Canada. Located 2 hours from one of the main Canadian cities of Calgary, in the south of the province of Alberta, and near the world famous Canadian Rockies, Crowsnest Pass may not be well-known outside of Canada, but its history is rich and its legacy unique and often tragic.
This town, framed by majestic mountain ranges, looking every inch the perfect holiday post card, has soul and real characters in the form of their locals; it is the perfect place for history buffs, art lovers, and avid fans of the great outdoors. Crowsnest has endured a turbulent history with events occurring such as the robberies and shootouts reminiscent of the Wild West in the United States, to the town’s many mining disasters, as well as Emperor Pic’s rum-running empire during the time of the prohibition. The town’s astounding historical legacy is undoubtedly a great tourism magnet, but the main reason that Crowsnest is so popular with local and foreign travellers alike is because of its amazing recreational potential. Crowsnest Pass is indeed an outdoor recreation Mecca where the order of the day is to get outside, breathe in a great whiff of that terrific fresh air, and enjoy the numerous amounts of activities on offer.
The added benefit is that no matter what time of year you visit, there is always something for you to enjoy. During the summer visitors can try their hand at ATVs, world-class fly-fishing, hiking, golf, and mountain biking. During the winter months, when the snowy blanket along the Southern Alberta mountain slopes transforms Crowsnest Pass into a spectacular winter wonderland, guests can take their snowmobiles out for a race or enjoy skiing and snowshoeing.
