Resorts of the Canadian Rockies

Resorts of the Canadian Rockies Inc. (RCR) is the largest private ski resort owner/operator in North America, owning six ski resorts across Canada.

The company owns Nakiska in Alberta as well as Fernie Alpine Resort, Kimberley Alpine Resort and Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in British Columbia. Resorts outside the Canadian Rockies are Mont-Sainte-Anne and Stoneham Mountain Resort in Quebec.

RCR also owns and manages a number of hotels, backcountry lodges and golf courses, including Trickle Creek Golf Resort[1] in Kimberley, Wintergreen Golf and Country Club[2] in Bragg Creek, The Wolf’s Den Lodge (Fernie) and the Trickle Creek Lodge[3] (Kimberley).


RCR was previously owned by Charlie Locke before he saw some financial trouble, and after a period in bankruptcy protection, was bailed out by Alberta billionaire N. Murray Edwards.

RCR previously operated Fortress Mountain Resort, Lake Louise Mountain Resort and Wintergreen Ski Area.

On December 29, 2011 RCR purchased Kicking Horse Mountain Resort from original developer Ballast Nedam.[4]
