About us

Under New Ownership as of Spring 2024 !!

Jon, Sue, and their son Jake, are excited to embark on this adventure and welcome you to the Crowsnest Pass, where Jon was born and raised.

Sue grew up in Switzerland, where they met as young adults, and joined Jon in the Beautiful Rocky Mountains in 2007, after falling in love at a Swiss Ski Resort.

They later got married and built a life here, raising their son, who is wheelchair bound, and full of joy and love for life! You may see him “racing” around the campground on his electric go-kart or his powerchair, always with a great big smile on his face. He also plans to drive around the campground, selling ice cream and cookies. 😉
