I stayed in Valemount for a few months at one stage. I didn't really know what the town had to offer so I stopped in to chat. The staff was so helpful and very friendly!! They have a great space for such a small town.

The folks (probably volunteers) who man the Info Centre are well suited for their job. They are friendly and will provide useful information for their area. The centre itself is very clean and inviting to look around. Good Job Valemount !

The staff here are so friendly and helpful. They gave us suggestions of what to see and do around Valemount as well as what the weather was like in Jasper. We got to see the salmon spawning because of their suggestions.
