About The Area

The discovery of lead, copper, zinc in southern British Columbia in the 1880’s gave rise to a large scale American investment in the area. Fearing U.S. domination, the Liberal government backed the Canadian pacific Railway in the construction of a line of the British Columbia mines through what was then called the Crow’s Nest Pass. It was at this point in the late 1890’s that the deposit of bituminous coal were discovered here.

 

The rapid expansion of the Prairie settlement during this era resulted in a heavy demand for coal to heat the new homes and businesses. At the same time, the presence of a steam-powered railway that used coal to fire its engines provided a degree of market stability. Within a few years, the Crowsnest Pass, as it is now known had developed into Alberta’s largest coal mining district.

 

The Coal Mining era ended in the late 1980’s. Today, thanks to unlimited recreational potential, Crowsnest Pass (comprising the 5 communities of Coleman: Blairmore, Frank, Hillcrest and Bellevue, with a total of 6500 residents) is developing into a sizzling tourist destination. Come and explore the mountain magic of Crowsnest Pass.
