Crowsnest Pass (Family)
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.
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.
