Salmo is a small friendly community in southeastern British Columbia. It is an equal 30 minute drive from the communities of Nelson, Castlegar, Trail and Creston. Mines in the area were major producers of gold, silver, lead, zinc and tungsten. Logging has continued to flourish over the years and continues today as a mainstay for many residents of the area. Surrounding mountains, pristine lakes, streams and rivers make Salmo an ideal setting for outdoor recreation enthusiasts. During the winter months the local ski hill offers night skiing on fully lit runs as well as great daytime skiing on the weekends. Salmo also has an indoor curling rink, outdoor skating rink and many cross country ski trails. In summer, the outdoor pool, hiking trails and local parks provide endless opportunities to enjoy a healthy living lifestyle. All of this makes Salmo truly one of the best places to live.
