Community of Smithers

High Above Smithers BC

In 1913 a new community was in design. Surveyors working for the Grand Trunk Pacific Railroad were laying out the streets that we in Smithers walk and drive upon today!

Smithers is known the world over for sensational outdoor recreation opportunities. Set in the exquisite, mountain-ringed Bulkley Valley, and less than two hours by air from Vancouver, Smithers the place to ski knee-deep world class powder, ride big river waves, hike and mountain bike in raw vast nature, fish the grand legendary wild steelhead—and live a superb rural lifestyle.

Founded in 1921 and settled later by mountain-mad European families, Smithers nowadays enjoys a growing popularity for music and arts, a delightful Main Street scene, and a rich and vibrant quality of community life.

And just a hop, skip and jump from Smithers is Skeena Catskiing. Check out a whole new way to experience the mountains around Smithers.
