The Home of Champions …
Nestled on the banks of the Columbia River surrounded by the Selkirk and Monashee mountain ranges Trail is a four-season destination. It offers an abundance of recreational activities – from golfing to skiing, mountain biking, kayaking, fishing, and hiking – as well as first-class recreational facilities. For residents and visitors alike, Trail offers outstanding opportunities for living life well and to the fullest.
Trail is a proud town with great community spirit! The Home of Champions, Trail was crowned “#1 Sports Town in BC” in the Province Newspaper Readers Poll and was a National winner of the Communities in Bloom.
“As a kid playing hockey and baseball in Trail, our idols were the players who played for the Trail Smoke Eaters hockey club. They were twice world champions and forever legends in our community,” says Ray Ferraro, sports broadcaster and ex-NHL star. “Trail is like no community I’ve ever seen. Champions in a variety of sports continue to reside there from generation to generation and, almost every day, you see them. It makes you feel you can become a champion too. No matter where I work, I’ll always return to Trail and spend time with friends and family there.”
