Isolation personified. Changing weather conditions. Bring your wardrobe - bikinis to faux fur. Clouds can descend in the area with no advance warning, so keep your cameras and binoculars at the ready. Apart from getting a park pass and looking around, no real reason to stay. A hotel was established there in 1963, undergone numerous change of owners until about... More

This is one of the better park info centres in BC. Staff were excellent. It's like a mini museum of the creation of this pass. We saw an informative film of winter avalanche prevention.

Not a beautiful spot with a decrepit inn beside it but the information inside is interesting re bears, Avalanche control and the pass itself. Good bathroom break on the trans Canada. Staff were knowledgeable and friendly

We stopped here because of the rain and also get a National Park pass. To our pleasant surprise, there was a movie about the Avalanche Control Program, how research is being done, and how the army has to shell the snow-cladded mountain sides to prevent avalanches. Rogers Pass has the highest incidence of avalanches in the country! There's also a... More

On outward Journey it was pouring with rain and roadworks made it almost impossible to stop. On the way back super sunny but limited time. This area blew me away on opening the sunroof at one point I could see the mountains on both sides of the valley at once, impressive. The center was not well advertised and needs more... More

The pass discovery center was good. When I was a kid this used to be a busy pass with the hotel and restaurant. The hotel boarded up and the restaurant closed and looking old. The squirrels were a big hit for they loved to be fed and great to watch.

It is a nice stop after all the creepy road. We stop there to look around but discover that it was a nice place with lots of history.

We stopped for a quick bathroom break on our way through the mountains. Thebathroom a are so clean and kept up! We didn't stop to see the museum, but the kids were thrilled with the very friendly ground squirrels outside. We forgot we were in a National Park and fed them a few crackers! Oops! Don't make the same mistake.....the... More
