Grand Forks

Grand Forks’ sprawling hills, treed mountains, and shady river set the backdrop for the cultural and commercial centre of the Boundary Country. Enjoy a unique combination of ambient small town charm and urban convenience. Soak up the sun in the summer during an afternoon on Christina Lake or traverse the local trails on horseback. When the snow falls head to nearby Phoenix Mountain for skiing or stroll through the quaint downtown core and marvel at the decorations and sea of Christmas lights.
