Northwest Mud Racing 2013

Side by Side Mud Racing – Aug 3 & 4, 2013

Are you ready for some good, clean fun? Figuratively, not literally, in this case! Side by Side Mud Racing in Valemont is coming back next weekend, August 3 & 4, 2013. Presented by the North West Mud Racing Association, this fun event involves 4×4 dragsters racing through a mod bog about three feet deep and 50 – 75 feet long. This sounds like a really great, loud and adrenaline-filled event!

Take a break from the quiet, serene surroundings of Mountain River Lodge & Cabins, in the shadow of Mt Robson, and enjoy this small town good time in nearby Valemount!

The Canoe Mountain Rodeo in Valemount

July 8th, 2013 by insideout

Did you know Canada had its fair share of cowboys? That legacy lives on here, just as it does in the States, with the rodeo. An event showcasing the kind of horseback skills that were essential during the cattle drives of yore, this Rodeo is no different. Enjoy all of the traditional rodeo events plus a live country music band, dancing and steak dinner.

The Canoe Mountain Rodeo takes place this year on July 13 & 14. Located in Valemount at the Canoe River Campground Rodeo Grounds, it is only 20 minutes from our Mount Robson cabins and lodge.

The rodeo will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, with the steak dinner on Saturday night from 5 – 7 p.m., followed by dancing to the “Union Jack” band starting at 9 p.m.
