Home to a little over 12,000 residents, the Town of Canmore is a significant base of operations for the more adventure-oriented Albertan. Surrounded by mountains on all sides, including the iconic Three Sisters, the town offers access to a number of hiking and biking trails, scrambles, and even a Nordic Centre that was created for the 1988 Calgary Olympics. With a number of great restaurants, pubs and cafes, the town is also a great place to indulge in some apr├Ęs-scramble.
