Welcome to the West Kootenay
Home to 100,000 residents, an outdoor rugged to urban cool mountain playground, and cultural flair that delivers on a definition of happiness. We call it the good life. With daily flights to/from Vancouver and Calgary, 12,500 annual aircraft movements, and 74,000 annual passengers, the airport is a gateway to the world and an economic development generator. Whether it is an international sculpture walk, a City that has been a movie backdrop, or renown as one of the top mountain biking spots in Canada, all we can say to visitors is good luck getting the grin off your face.
