Canmore / Banff Real Estate
Why live in Canmore / Banff?
Nestled in Alberta’s scenic Bow River Valley and surrounded by the Canadian Rockies, Canmore is a popular vacation destination, renowned for its spectacular mountain scenery and myriad opportunities for outdoor recreation. Once a humble mining town, Canmore debuted on the world stage when it hosted the Nordic events for the Calgary 1988 Olympic Winter Games. Today Canmore real estate attracts investors from across Alberta, North America and the world.
Located less than an hour’s drive west of Calgary, Alberta, the town of Canmore lies just minutes away from Banff National Park, Kananaskis Country and Bow Valley Provincial Parks. Canmore was one of the most important coal mining centres in the province for close to a century until Canmore Mines Ltd. closed its operations. It was from these humble, hardworking beginnings that Canmore transformed itself into a vacation and real estate investment destination, sought-after for its breathtaking setting in the Canadian Rockies, powder skiing and snowboarding, Olympic-caliber ski facilities and endless array of outdoor activities.
Canmore isn’t simply a destination for vacationers and outdoor enthusiasts— the town’s natural beauty and high quality of life attract new residents and retirees who wish to call it home. In fact, Canmore was ranked second out of 180 cities on MoneySense Magazine’s list of Canada’s Best Places to Live in 2011.
