Description

The heights of the Rockies have dazzled visitors since the CPR brought the first passenger train through the range in 1885. Geologist A.P. Coleman, one of the first to visit, wrote "After years of humdrum city life... here was purity and dignity and measureless peace." Whether they come to experience the serenity of the alpine reaches or the adventure of backcountry skiing, the Rockies continue to draw millions of visitors each year.
