An interesting place to visit to learn about the slide. There are a few walks through the surrounding area including the slide remnants. The only cost is if you want to go into the Interpretive Centre building and view the information and watch the video(s)....More

Took the kids to the interpretive center to see what it was about. Extremely interesting. An awful piece of Alberta history but really enjoyed the videos and all the information available. Hiked the interpretive path through the rocks which was quite beautiful

Very nice interpretive centre. We watched both movies which are included in the admission price. Neither movie is very long, but worth watching.

This place is so weird and so unbelievably sad. Until you see it in person, I don’t think you can imagine how big it was. Mountains are probably my favorite places in the world, but I had no idea they could be so destructive... you...More
