We arrived on a snowy day. It was great to enjoy the hospitality and take a break from the white knuckle drive over Crow's Nest Pass. The staff offered restaurant suggestions and helpful road condition information. Oh, and we love the big truck!

Very friendly staff, a little shopping and washrooms. What's more is that it is next to the truck. It is easy off, easy on the highway. A great stop for info.
