Obviously, the reason you go to a visitors center is for information! Duh! And so obviously you'd expect that the staff would know what their doing and have a knowledge of the area. Well, they do here!! We were welcomed and treated like tourists and we found where we needed to go no problems! Lots of brochures there too so you'll find info on anything!

Travel centre is just of the TransCanada Highway at the top of the hill before entering into the Columbia River valley. Beautifully designed and modern building with clean modern washrooms (thank you, thank you, thank you!). Lots of relevant information about the history of the region (Braeside, Donald and Golden), things to see and do and contact information for adventure tourism. Definitely worth stopping in if you plan to stay a few days or just want to know about the geology, history and geography you are surrounded by.

If you come skiing in kicking horse mountain resort on a busy week end, the best way to skip the line to buy your lift ticket is to stop there on your way up the hill there is never any line and you will save 30 minutes in average.

Everyone we spoke to at the Centre were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They have a good range of maps and books ... and some nice gifts for taking home
