Area Data :

Edgewater
Edgewater is an unincorporated hamlet located in the Columbia Valley on the perimeter of Kootenay National Park and adjacent to the spectacular Columbia River. Originally known and founded as a farming community before the First World War. The community of 550 residents has since established itself into a forestry, agriculture and tourism area for the region. The community gets its name from being the edge of the waters of the Columbia River. There is a golf course, general store/gas station and most commercial services are only 10 km south in Radium or another 5 minutes to Invermere.


Columbia Valley
The Rocky Mountain Trench, known as the Columbia Valley, is surrounded by the BC Rocky Mountains on the east and the Purcell Mountains to the west. Both are impressively high and rugged ranges. The Columbia River, with its headwaters in Columbia Lake, rolls through the southern part of the valley northward for more than 200 km before bending southward and heading west to the Pacific Ocean. This broad waterway is an important stopover on the semi-annual migration route for wildlife and offers world renowned bird watching. The climate here is one of Canada’s most desirable with lots of sunshine and long summers with minimal winter precipitation low in the valley but lots of top in the mountains.
