A West Kootenay Gem

Where can you still buy a home in B.C. for around $250,000, find world-class sport fishing, ski at Red Mountain Resort in winter and hike or bike hundreds of kilometres of single track? Trail is that Kootenay gem, where we recently spotted several listings around the $250,000 mark, including three-bedroom and quaint vintage homes. The Teck Resources plant there is one of the world’s largest zinc and lead smelting and refining facilities–and a source of many great, well-paying local jobs. trail.ca
