With a population of only 4,200, Golden is an unassuming small town with an industrial past, but there's more than one dimension to its modest personality.

The biggest employers are the Louisiana-Pacific plywood plant, the Canadian Pacific Railway, and expanding tourism led by Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.

People come here from all over the planet for the area's world-class outdoor recreation. Summer activities include river rafting, paragliding, mountain biking, and wildlife viewing.

In winter, the attractions are downhill skiing and snowboarding, backcountry skiing, cross-country skiing, heli-skiing and snowmobiling.
