Cue the screeching cats and cackling witches and come enjoy one of the biggest Halloween events in Western Canada at Fort Steele. It doesn't get more real than this because this a true historic ghost...

We all know there’s no such thing as an overnight success. Mother Nature took millions of years to do her spectacular work on shaping the Kootenay/Columbia Valley region of British Columbia.

The countdown is on. At 9 a.m. on Sept. 9, the starter’s pistol will fire signalling the start of the 4th Annual Kootenay Rockies Gran Fondo. 

We were told a Gran Fondo is just an easy ride with a bunch of like-minded cyclists.

Sam Steele Days, held the third week of June, certainly has something for everyone - and then some.

Throughout the year, Fort Steele is known for bringing history to life.

<p>Back in day, those that dared to side-step the law in B.C.’s Kootanays, Alberta or the Yukon on Major General Sir Sam Steele’s watch were handled swiftly.</p>

These short videos show showcase the adventures that await in Cranbrook. Nestled in the heart of the Kootenay Rockies there's something for everyone to enjoy.

A hearty city in the East Kootenays, Cranbrook is prepped and ready for the onslaught of RVs and trailer motorcades rolling into town.
