West of the Kootenay River in BC’s beautiful southern interior lies the region known as the West Kootenay. Here, pristine mountain streams chart their winding courses through deep valleys, while deer graze along the shore and snow-capped peaks tower overhead. This map charts this entire recreation-rich region and features a 20,000 + km² expansion from the last edition, extending north from Revelstoke to cover the area around Golden, Kinbasket Lake and Banff National Park. This map has also been expanded to the west to include Grand Forks, Granby Provincial Park and the upper reaches of Lake Revelstoke. In the south, we cover the familiar outdoor adventure hotspots of Kaslo, Nelson, Trail and beyond. Whether you are looking to hike, camp, fish, paddle, swim, ski, snowshoe, hunt or ATV, this map gives you the most comprehensive coverage available anywhere.
