You don't have to be full of local knowledge to have an awesome time in Golden, but you should know a few essential facts before you take off.
To help you find your feet, Golden is 130 miles (209 kilometers) west of the well-known city of Calgary.
Traveling is all about meeting people, so why not make pals with some of the 4,000 locals who reside in this area of Kootenay Rockies?
Leave the history journals! Allow the past to come alive at Golden and District Museum. Want some more options? British Columbia Visitor Centre at Golden is a fantastic resource for any questions about your trip. Collect some local maps and brochures and get some great tips from the knowledgeable staff. And that's not all there is. Few things are as satisfying as unwinding in style after a great day on the snow. At Chatter Creek you can improve your techniques on the slopes then swap stories over delicious meals and a couple of drinks.
Got your suitcase and passport? Fantastic — board the flight to Revelstoke Airport (YRV). Once you hit the tarmac, you'll be only 55 miles (89 kilometers) from the heart of Golden.
