Welcome to the BC Rockies. This region is comprised of two distinct sub regions, the Rockies & The Kootenays.
In the west, the Kootenays is rich in history and recreation. The Crowsnest Hwy 3 follows the southern border of BC across mountains, lush valleys. North of Castlegar and Nelson various routes take you to large lakes, peaceful communities and outdoor adventure.
In the Kootenays, British Columbia's past, present and future come together in one enchanting region. The surrounding mountains that once gave rise to mining boomtowns, now offer outstanding outdoor recreation. Visitors can enjoy downhill, cross-country and heli-skiing, hiking, climbing, snowmobiling, and much more.
The Kootenays are filled with lakes, rivers and streams that provide excellent fishing, boating and kayaking. And the many golf courses provide exciting challenges for the golfing enthusiast.
