If anyone was wondering if Valemount has actually switched to tourism based economy — it has.
The weekend of (Saturday) Jun. 17, the Valemount Bike Park saw over 200 users visit the grounds. The park had never seen so many users at one time, according to VARDA General Manager Curtis Pawliuk.
VARDA was cooking up free burgers and hot dogs for bike park users, while PEAK SHUTTLES were on hand to help cut wait times.
Later the same evening, just over 500 people — tourists and locals alike — gathered at the Valemount Airport to celebrate the first ever vALEmount Craft Beer Experience.
