About the Book

Located in the southeast corner of British Columbia, the Windermere Valley is at the headwaters of the mighty Columbia. The ideal base for exploring this spectacular country of the northern Purcells and the western slopes of the Canadian Rockies is the picturesque town of Invermere.

From short strolls to dayhikes to overnighters to major, committing mountaineering routes, this book has all the information you need to get out there and enjoy the most beautiful spots at Spillimacheen River, Horsethief, Toby and Frances creeks and Mount Assiniboine as well as in the Stanford Range, the Bugaboos, Kootenay National Park and Height of the Rockies. Here you’ll find descriptions of not only the hikes themselves but the highway approaches, accommodations and services, emergency contacts and much, much more.

About the Author(s)

Aaron Cameron has lived in the Windermere Valley since he was seven years old. In the past decade he has spent a tremendous amount of time in the mountains around Invermere, hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, rock climbing and mountaineering. When not out and about, he builds houses, plays volleyball and changes the colour of his infamous hair.

Matt Gunn attended school in Invermere and has many fond memories of hiking in the Windermere Valley. He graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Education degree and promptly fled Canada seeking asylum from reality in Japan where, when not teaching English, he enjoys the incredible secrets of Hokkaido powder and flesh-charring natural hot springs.
