The Station's History 

In 1887, the Canadian Pacific Railroad opened the Glacier House Lodge in Roger’s Pass to accommodate the European climbers and hikers who were drawn to the rugged mountains of British Columbia. This influx of tourism brought highly trained Swiss Guides to the small town of Golden City and these settlers cultivated a respect and knowledge for the mountains that still inspires commercial recreation operators here today.
