Regional District: East Kootenay
Elkford is a picturesque Rocky Mountain town founded in 1971 as a home for miners working at newly-established Fording Coal operations. From its early days as a collection of temporary homes, a one-room school, and a single general store, Elkford has grown to its current population of nearly 3,000 residents. Elkford remains a place where nature prevails – and humanity borrows a bit of space. The thrusted and vaulted limestone peaks of the Elk mountain range harbour wild places that engender profound human emotion. Elkford inspires outdoor pursuits…the palette of both active adventure and passive pursuit of serenity is as big as the mountainous expanse that surrounds. Pristine natural wilderness is highlighted by proximity to Elk Lakes Provincial Park, Height of the Rockies Wilderness area along the continental divide, world class fly-fishing on the Elk River, a local ski hill, and a full range of community recreational amenities. ""Wilderness"" remains core to what the community is and wants to be.
