“GREAT EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE FOR SCHOOL GROUPS”

Bellevue Underground Mine
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Each & every year, hundred of students come by motorcoach in June, from all over Alberta, Saskatchewan, & B.C., to see where hundreds of Coal Miners worked underground, mining coal which was sold worldwide as a popular fossil fuel, heating buildings, making Steel, & providing intense heat for a multitude of manufacturing industries. The temperature is a constant -2 degrees celcius year round in the mine, as it is naturally insulated by the mountain walls in the interior. Groups of 20 persons are lead by interpreters into the mine for 45 minutes, each being outfitted with Hard Hats with Lanterns. It is necessary to dress with warm clothing, & low comfortable shoes.
The admission fare for groups is negligible, & not too pricey for individuals.

Like many of the attractions in the area this one too has a large admission fee. There are many great things to do along crowsnest pass but take plenty of money as you will pay an average of 15 - 20 dollars a head for the attractions. There is a little cool info and great scenery outside the mine but really nothing to do if you are not willing to fork over big bucks to get your family inside.

Strap on your miner's helmet and lantern and venture about 300 metres into a coal mine. I found out I don't like dark, enclosed, underground spaces....but it was worth it. Lowell, the guide, was quite informative about the workings of the mine and what life was like in the early 1900's.

If you pass through the Pass you have to stop here and go underground. You get to slip on a miners helmet with light and you walk deep into the mine, it can be scary but its fun too. Don't miss it!
