I drive the Rogers Pass on a regular basis, and have for many years. The fact that the hotel closed a few years ago is a shame. The gas station charged 60% more per litre for gas than everywhere else, and has been closed for years, but the state of the building is downright hazardous - the tin is peeling... More

Stopped here to buy park passes. The facility was understaffed and the wait so long, we left and bought tickets at Cedar Boardwalk. Area is in dire need of improvements. Deserted lodge is an eye sore.

Neat place, the movie on avalanche control was very good. We were disappointed later in the trip, that the Rangers didn't tell us about the kids explorer programme

My first trip in BC. Stopped at Rogers Pass Discovery Centre on our way to Banff, Alberta. This is an interesting stop to go in and check out the history in the area. Outside you have a great view of these mountains which are prone to Avalanches. There are cannons on the property which blast the snow off the mountains... More

Good place to pickup info. There is a charge to go in the centre but free if you show your Park Pass Good history of the park and videos of bears and avalanches. Clean washroom inside. A nice place to take a break and quick snooze.

National Park staff provide helpful answers to a flood of visitors who stream by without experiencing the incredible beauty of the place.

This is a good place to stop and take a break from the vehicle. The building is interesting in itself and it presents a good overview of the geology and natural history of this magnificent mountain world. There is an entry fee, but I can't remember what it is. You can also buy your pass for Banff National Park here.

On these spots where you always say your going to stop at, well I finally did today. A good place to learn the history and gain information on Rogers Pass. A brief stop will do, it's rather sad though that Parks Canada can't find someone to open up the old restaurant there, that has been closed for a number of... More
