Go back in history to experience the past at Rogers Pass!
By staying at Chancellor Peak Chalets, you are right in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Since we are located just 20 minutes east of Golden, British Columbia we are within easy driving distance of some incredible natural scenery.
One of the “must see” destinations and scenic drives (if you are visiting us) is to take a day-trip to the Rogers Pass. Rogers Pass is located in Glacier National Park and is open year round, but be aware that many visitor facilities are closed by snow from October to May. So please check with Parks Canada prior to making your plans to visit it. Rogers Pass is located between Chancellor Peak Chalets and Revelstoke.
Called the best national park museum in Canada by Explore Magazine, the Rogers Pass National Historic Site is a replica of an historic railway snowshed. It is an essential place to start or end your day when you visit. This recently-renovated information center features a theater, exhibits about avalanches, wildlife and the history of the area.
Glacier National Park of Canada protects, for all time, a portion of the Columbia Mountains Natural Region, in the interior wet belt of British Columbia. The steep, rugged mountains, warm, moist climate and wide variety of plant and animal life are typical of this natural region.
The park protects unique stands of old-growth cedar and hemlock and critical habitat for threatened and endangered wildlife species such as the mountain caribou, mountain goats and grizzly bears.
The Rogers Pass National Historic Site is located in Glacier National Park. Rogers Pass was so designated for it’s importance in the construction and development of the country’s first major national transportation route.
