Description : In 1899, the Canadian Pacific Railway brought two Swiss guides to work at Glacier House in Rogers Pass. Riding the crest of growing interest in mountaineering in Europe and the United States, the railway advertised Canada,s mountain parks as 50 Switzerlands in one and promoted the role guides played in enjoyable and safe mountain travel. The guides introduced safe climbing techniques, and helped establish a sense of appreciation of mountain environments in Canadians.
