In a nutshell...
Smithers is a quaint little alpine community situated at the base of the panoramic Hudson Bay Mountain in the scenic, fertile Bulkley Valley. Located on the Yellowhead highway halfway between Prince George and Prince Rupert, this community has a Swiss Bavarian theme with its red brick sidewalks, colorful flags and a lifesized alpine herdsman statue. Hunting, fishing, swimming, waterskiing, rock hounding, mountain climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding and hiking are just some of the summer activities Smithers has to offer within a short radius. In the winter, visitors and residents have plenty to do choosing from snowmobiling, curling and hockey, ice skating, snowshoeing, crosscountry and downhill skiing. Surrounded by high mountains and pastoral farmlands, this community of 5000 as all the accommodations one could desire.
