A small city with a big personality, Nelson (population of 16,704 with surrounding Regional Districts E & F) is situated on the West Arm of Kootenay Lake in the heart of the Selkirk Mountains. Residents enjoy the alpine and nordic skiing, cat-skiing, mountain biking, hiking, boating and golf, an active arts and culture scene and a thriving small business community. Home to an eclectic mix of established Nelson families, urban refugees, Vietnam draft dodgers and hippies, this offbeat Victorian town also boasts hundreds of well-preserved heritage buildings, numerous good restaurants, bustling coffee shops and sidewalk cafes.
