Summer 2017 is going down as a hot one. Make sure you stay cool through the heat warnings!
It s early November and the Christmas spirit is just emerging from it s 11-month slumber and red, green, and glitter is exploding over home décor aisles everywhere.
Driving through the Crowsnest Pass is an eerie and ethereal experience for a stretch of two kilometres. Piled high on both sides of Highway 3 around the town of Frank are the remains of the deadliest rockslide to ever happen in Canada.
Nestled in the Rocky Mountains in the extreme west of Southern Alberta, the Crowsnest Pass has a little something for everyone.
The snow is firmly packed on the mountains of Alberta, sending out a siren song to expert skiers and aspiring Olympic snowboarders the world round. Claim your place on one of the region s epic runs before it s too late!
Day trippers from Calgary and visitors driving through southern Alberta would do well to include the Frank Slide and Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump on a trip.
