Since we are going to the Rocky Mountains at the end of March, I thought it’d be a great idea to learn a bit about the places we will visit during our trip! The first day we will be arriving at Valemount, BC!
Valemount is a town surrounded by the beautiful BC mountain ranges, Cariboo, the Monashee, and of course the Rockies. Today, this place welcomes travelers all year round with fun and exciting activities such snowmobiling, heli-skiing in winter, hiking, camping, and trail riding, and whitewater rafting in summer! You can also just simply enjoy the quiet serenity as you breathe in the fresh mountain air!
But in the early 1900’s, Valemount played an important role in railway construction between the Great Northern and Grand Trunk Railroads, which later became the CN Railway System. In 1928, Valemount became a railway station, and you’ll be able to see the historic remains and artifacts on display at the Valemount and Area Museum!
It is also the closest town to Mount Robson, the TALLEST of the Canadian Rocky Mountains! As for shopping, they have really unique and locally made gifts that you can’t find anywhere else!
That’s all for now, don’t want to spoil it for you before the trip 😉 But why don’t you see this amazing place for yourself? Remember to register at our office and click here to join our Facebook event page!
