The Canmore Climbing Festival 2017 Will Rock

The 2017 Canmore Climbing Festival is the third of the annual event to take place in the heart of the Bow Valley.

Surrounded by big mountains and close to the Bow River, hundreds of climbers and outdoors people will gather to enjoy four presentations.

You can purchase tickets at Vertical Addiction, a great climbing/ski shop in Canmore.

Canmore has long been home to Canadian climbers. The history of the sport in the area can be traced back to the late 1800s when Europeans arrived to make the first ascents of the local mountains.

Canmore and the Bow Valley are one of Canada’s most desired places to live. To see a list of current listings of homes on the market visit here.
