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!

Banff summer vacation
Property was beautiful! Close to grocery , liquor store and all the parks. Highly would recommend staying here and will go back to this property
Thankyou Shelley and Rick
The property was just what we needed. We were a group of seven, including a family of four and a family of three. All of our group was 16 or older.
The space worked perfectly. Both families had their own dedicated bathroom. There was plenty of space in the well-appointed kitchen. The living space, bedrooms and balcony was enough to give us all a retreat if needed, and plenty of space to eat, play cards, watch movies, and just reflect on the day.
The location was perfect; close enough to Banff, set in the beautiful town of Canmore, close to shops, restaurants, grocery stores and more. We did not need our car within the town. Local restaurants were all great.
Thank you for a magical trip.
We loved this condo. It is exactly as it appears in the pictures. The kitchen is well stocked, bedding is comfortable, view is beautiful and location is great. Everything you need to know about Check in, Check out, parking and the hot tub are clearly given to you ahead of time. The communication from the owners is quick and friendly. They were very helpful with any questions we had about the area. We definitely hope to return to Canmore and this property again.
Thank you Shelley & Rick. You thought of everything to make our stay easy and enjoyable.
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!
