About Shelley and Rick
Rick and I currently reside and work in Ontario’s cottage country, the Kawartha Lakes. We always felt what was missing from our home was the majestic mountains. I grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan and made regular trips to Banff to enjoy the National Park and skiing. Rick lived in Cranbrook, BC and later Terrace, BC upon graduation, fostering his mountain passion.
Shelley and Rick purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Shelley and Rick chose Canmore
We fell in love with Canmore and the surrounding area during our family’s March break ski vacation. We appreciated the cozy, family oriented town of Canmore, away from the bustle of Banff tourists. It was an outdoor enthusiasts' playground and it was a delight to bump into locals who actively enjoyed and took advantage of living in such a beautiful corner of the world.
What makes this Condo unique
Our family was hooked! We purchased this Canmore Crossing condo in 2017 to share the area with others and give us the opportunity to visit more often. We were thrilled with the downtown location - we could park the car and conveniently walk to all of Canmore’s amenities including the grocery stores just behind our condo, restaurants and local shops. This is not possible at our Ontario home. It is our absolute pleasure to have you as our guest. We have professionally renovated the condo to offer a beautiful and comfortable vacation retreat. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance during your stay to ensure you have the best possible visit. Feel free to reach out with any questions about the condo, the town and the area. We are new to Canmore but we have many connections in the area to provide you with accurate, helpful information. Enjoy your stay!

Beautifully renovated condo
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely condo! Beautiful renovations and a wonderful location. We only used our car to go hiking, otherwise we left the car parked and could walk everywhere. It was an added bonus that there was a secure underground parkade. Look forward to our next trip
5 star stay
We had a very enjoyable stay. Lovely property, great location and very clean, would definitely recommend it.
The condo is really pleasant and was a perfect spot for 5 hiking friends. It has a cozy living area with fireplace which was nice after coming in from a -4 degree hike. The parking was a little confusing at first but Shelley was quick to respond to provide assistance. Highly recommend for a stay in Banff.
Mountain goodness condo
Great location in a pristine location with easy access to everything. Owners were extremely accommodating with recommendations of hotspots and condo came with all the conveniences to make the stay even that much more enjoyable!!! Highly recommend!!!!
Beautiful Property in the best location
I have stayed at multiple units at Canmore Crossing and this one is my favourite. It's HUGE, clean, and packed with everything that you and your guests need. The view from the property is incredible. Downtown is just a few minutes away and things like groceries and coffee is across the parking lot. You have got to stay here!
Clean and plenty of room for 6 adults
I enjoyed the property, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, clean and very close to town center. Be careful when cooking the smoke detector went off when cooking just toast. Very sensitive. I suggest window open and fan running when cooking. Extremely friendly town was a plus. Great restaurants but Sage was our best. If you like the outdoors you will love all the hiking trails. We saw a bear on the trail that ran along the river. Thank you for opening up your home, it truly was a pleasure.
Canmore is a one hour drive west of Calgary and near the border of Banff National Park. It is located within the Bow Valley and has the Bow River running through it. 5 mountain ranges surround the town including Ha Ling Peak, Grotto Mountain, Mount Lady MacDonald, Mount Lawrence Grassi and the famous Three Sisters. Many of these mountains have climbing, mountain biking and hiking trails for all abilities and ages.
Canmore is a quaint town within the Alberta Rockies. It has a climate that is relatively mild compared to some regions of Alberta. This pedestrian-friendly town centre surrounds 8th Street (known as "Main Street") which is lined with small shops, restaurants and galleries.
There are a series of hiking, mountain biking, equestrian and paved trails throughout Canmore area. Most notably is the Legacy Trail to Banff, the Benchlands of Mount Lady MacDonald, the Canmore Nordic Centre and the north slope of Mount Lawrence Grassi (2 small lakes located right in the mountains!).
Canmore Nordic Centre was originally constructed for the 1988 Winter Olympic Games. The public can now use the facilities for cross-country skiing, mountain biking, unicycling, trail running, roller skiing and hiking. It also has disc golf courses and orienteering. It even has a 6.5 km track that is illuminated for night-time cross-country skiing.
Elevation Place, less than a 5 minute walk from our condo, opened in 2013 and is Canmore's new recreation facility. It offers an 8-lane, 25m lap pool, a world class climbing wall, two cardio rooms, a strength room and a host of fitness programs. Elevation Place also houses the community's library and local art gallery. It offers fun for the entire family - a great way to spend a day!
There are many local festivals and annual events. Some of the more popular ones include Canmore Uncorked - hosted every April for 13 days of special set price menus from local restaurants, culinary events, cooking courses and a long table dinner. The Canmore Winter Carnival for 2 weeks in early February providing lots of indoor and outdoor activities - ice carving competitions for adults and kids, skating parties, street hockey, log sawing competitions , pooch parade, art crawls and the popular Snowy Owl Kid N' Mutt races. There is also The Rocky Mountain Ski Challenge hosted by the Canmore Nordic Ski Club, The Canmore Folk Music Festival in August, The Canmore Highland Games in September, Mozart on the Mountain presented by the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and the annual Festival of Eagles celebrating the autumn migration of the golden eagle over Canmore and the Bow Valley. Just to name a few of the annual activities in Canmore!
Other must-sees is Lake Minnewanka. It is a glacial lake located in the eastern area of Banff National Park. There are daily boat tours in the summer and the area is rich with animal life including elk, mountain sheep, eagles, mule deer and bears. There is an excellent opportunity to see some wildlife from the tour boat and the captain has great stories of the area.
Canmore is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. You can downhill ski or snowboard the "Big 3" including Banff Sunshine Village Ski Resort, Lake Louise and Norquay. Discounted ski lift tickets are available at Calgary's Costco and there are many gear stores in Canmore for equipment to rent or purchase. There are outstanding public golf courses nearby with wonderful mountain views. You can white water raft, dog sled, mountain and road bike, and hiking/ walking trails starting right outside our condo to name a few activities! Our condo is central to all that Canmore and the surrounding Rockies have to offer. Enjoy!
