The Experience

In the early hours of April 29, 1903, some 82 million tonnes of limestone let loose from the east face of Turtle Mountain and hurtled down on the unsuspecting valley below. It partially buried the town of Frank, dammed the Crowsnest River and destroyed the local coal mine’s infrastructure.

You can still see the effects of the slide today. Visit the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre, which reflects this amazing tale of tragedy and the triumph of the human spirit.
