    I knew someone with cabin there here too. Beautiful place. Their taxes (lease) was something like $99/yr then it jumped to near $7000 back in the 80s I believe. As far as I know all the cabin land is still lease land.

      Agreed Cadomin has better potential, but more like the Kanaskis (off the main highway) than the Canmore.

      If we want a park gateway community on the Yellowhead, it pretty much has to be Hinton, but clearly obvious why it's hamstrung.
      Let's make Edmonton better.

        They're not selling the lot/property. They're transferring the lease and selling the structure on the property, I would imagine. No one can own land within a National Park, as far as I understand it.

          Inholdings. I'm not sure about national parks but I'm near certain that they still exist in some provincial parks.

            Hinton has a nice public library. Good collection and programming. The neighbouring rec center appeared well appointed.

              Well, get the kids and pack up the car! We're going to... one of the amazing libraries and rec centres here and still not giving a crap about Hinton as the tourist destination it will never be.

                      Jasper has the ski hill, Marmot Basin.

                      What Olympic winter sport could a facility be set up to host event and general public for experiences in Hinton or Edson? Bob sled? Biathlone? Quad/Snowmobile races?

                          ^ That's a good thing, but unfortunately they aren't Squamish or Pemberton either.

                            Likely some sort of outdoor related micro-tourism - hunting, fishing, white water rafting, X-country skiing. Spelunking (yes, you heard that right) at Cadomin. (used to be a fantastic bed and breakfast there with a second floor hot-tub)
