Interesting to read the information of the local mining and history. Well worth a visit if you're travelling the Crowsnest Hwy.

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!

The visitor centre has clean washrooms and a lot of info for things to do all over the area and beyond. Our whole family went on one of the mine tours that run Tues-Thurs at 1:00. Very reasonable price ($10 per adult and less for our little who was old enough to require payment, under age 6 is free) and the nearly the entire tour takes place from comfort of a tour bus. At the top of the mine we disembarked in a viewing area and it was very interesting. Note, photos are not allowed on this tour.

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.
