Legacy to the Future

Welcome to


The City of Trail is the industrial hub for the Greater Trail area and West Kootenay region. For generations it has been a thriving engine of BC’s electricity, mining, and economy, exemplifying how small towns foster big industry.

Trail is located in the heart of the Kootenays and is the ideal location for outdoor enthusiasts. As Powering Generations will be taking place during the culmination of the spring season from June 4th – 6th, there are endless activities for the naturalist to partake in.
