Canada’s deadliest rockslide
The Frank Slide Interpretive Centre, located near Crowsnest Pass in southern Alberta, overlooks Canada’s deadliest rockslide.
See and hear what transpired on the night of Turtle Mountain’s collapse in 1903. On the Edge of Destruction and In the Mountain’s Shadow, two award-winning documentaries on natural disasters, are part of the centre’s programming. Take a seat in the chilly auditorium and learn about the mountain’s fall on that fateful night.
Take your time viewing the miners’ cottages, hearing the stories of the survivors, paying your respects to the victims of the accident, and going along the interpretive route at the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre.
