The Rockies are privileged to live, work, and play in one of the most beautiful areas of Canada – Invermere, British Columbia. Nestled between the Rocky and Purcell Mountain ranges, our valley is home to the source of the Columbia River, which rises in Canal Flats.
The Columbia Valley is also home to Windermere Valley Minor Hockey, who’s teams also play under the Rockies banner. The Rockies pride themselves in their relationship with their co- located Minor Hockey Association.
Our players are always willing to help out coaching the younger teams and our A/P program focuses primarily on local talent, but also includes players form within and outside our own Division.
Perhaps the most popular result of the relationship with the Windermere Valley Minor Hockey program is the ‘Seventh Rockie’ initiative where a member of the Novice or Initiation Rockies team gets to join our players on-ice before a home game for the national anthem.
We are proud to be associated with such a vibrant and successful Minor Program and greatly appreciate all the support and work their players and organization give us.
In winter we are afforded a true Winter Wonderland with both Panorama (one of our major sponsors) and Fairmont Ski Resorts on our doorstep. Additionally, four more world-class ski resorts within 90 minutes drive of Invermere (Sunshine Village, Lake Louise, Norquay, and Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. The full range of winter adventures are available without going anywhere, including skating or nordic skiing on the 30km skating route on the Lake Windermere Whiteway.
For the rest of the year we are spoiled for choice as there are world-class golf courses, trails for hiking and mountain biking, beautiful lakes, and one of a kind views in every direction, If you are considering trying out for the Columbia Valley Rockies, please come visit!
