Canmore – A World-Class Mountain Resort with a Small Town Feel

Canmore is a magical place nestled in the Canadian Rockies along the Bow River and only an hour’s drive from my neighborhood in Calgary.  There are so many things I love about Canmore, not the least of which is the small-town vibe that permeates the town and its down-to-earth friendly residents.

Canmore is a quaint mountain town that has all the tourist attractions one would expect without being touristy.  It’s the perfect destination for a day or weekend trip from Calgary.  I love to visit for the day, take a hike along the river, browse the cute shops and enjoy a lovely meal with friends or family.  Canmore has a number of fine restaurants, including a fair number that offer gluten-free menu items.

In addition to the spectacular scenery and abundant hiking trails, Canmore offers world-class skiing and snowboarding, ice fishing, dog sledding and ice climbing.  When the spring snow finally thaws, it’s time for golf, fishing, cycling and rock climbing.  There is even a massive indoor aquatics facility.   Shoppers can enjoy browsing for local art and collectibles in the many boutiques and galleries.

One of my favorite memories of good times spent in Canmore involved a family wedding where I was joined by my two sisters, one from Ontario and the other living in Nova Scotia.  Given the distance that separates us, we don’t have the opportunity to get together as often as we would like.  On that wedding day, we had a photograph taken of the three of us posing against a backdrop of Canmore’s famous Three Sisters mountain peaks.  The photograph is a fond memory of a wonderful day with my family in a very special place.

Canmore is so special that I’ve been known to drive there just to enjoy a cup of coffee with friends.  When friends are in town for a short visit or even a layover on a long flight, I often take them to Canmore for a few hours.  The mountain air and awesome scenery is irresistible any time of year.
