Cradled in a valley between the Rocky Mountains, the Monashee Mountains and the Cariboo Mountains, the friendly village of Valemount is itself nestled at the foot of Canoe Mountain.

Valemount is the home of Mount Robson, at 3,954 metres the highest peak in the Rockies and the origin of the mighty Fraser River. This is real mountain country, with unparalleled natural beauty, quiet solitude, and clean mountain air in The Valley of the Mountains.

Valemount offers some amazing snowmobiling and heli-skiing in winter, and hiking, camping, and trail riding are popular during the summer months. A true valley for all seasons.

The history of Valemount dates back to the arrival of the first European fur traders David Thompson and Pierre Hatsination around 1805. The Overlanders passed through the area in 1862, en route from Ontario to the Cariboo Goldfields. The Great Northern and Grand Trunk Railroads came into the area about 1910, with railroad activities centred around Tete Jaune Cache, 25 kilometres to the north. Valemount became a railway station in 1928, and expanded gradually until the 1960s with the development of improved highways.

Population: 1,388

Location: Valemount is located on the Yellowhead Highway 5, near the northern tip of Kinbasket Lake, 14 miles (22 km) south of Tete Jaune Cache and 200 miles (320 km) north of Kamloops.
