Canmore may be one of Canada’s true outdoor playgrounds, nestled amongst the mountains, but that doesn’t mean we’re without indoor options. In fact, just a few minutes from our hotel, is a fantastic destination for indoor fun, all year around. We’re talking, of course, about Elevation Place. Just what will you find behind their doors? Well, here are some of the highlights.

Climbing Gym

At Elevation Place, you can climb to your heart’s content in an amazing, indoor rock climbing facility. Whether you’re new to the sport, or a vertical veteran, you’re sure to have fun on their walls. The gym boasts 10,000 square feet of climbing surface, which includes 1,500 square feet of bouldering space, and a 30-foot speed wall, designed by the International Federation of Sport Climbing. Just don’t look down— or if you’re an adrenaline junkie, do!

Public Library

Elevation Place offers more than just rock climbing fun. Inside the facility is also an extensive, well-stocked public library, where you can peruse a selection of over 60,000 resources. Better still, once you’ve found a book to bury your nose in, you can hunker down in a cozy chair by one of their fireplaces, or gaze through the window at a spectacular mountain view. They’ve also got work stations for visitors with business or studying to get out of the way.

Yes, Canmore is a hub for skiers, snowboarders, hikers, bikers, snowshoers, dogsledders, outdoor photographers, and more. But if you’re after a day of indoor fun, our city’s got you covered too. You’ll find it, just a jaunt from our hotel, under the roof of Elevation Place. That said, for all its strengths, Elevation Place doesn’t offer comfortable beds or scrumptious breakfasts. That’s our department! So why not book a room at our hotel, and experience all the outdoor— and indoor excitement of beautiful Canmore.
