The Residence experience is one that offers many social connections. Residents living here are from all parts of the world. Meet people with common interests that you can hike, bike, climb, paddle, and basically connect with. There are frequent common room gatherings where people meet up to play music, play a game of pool, or just hang out. People get together to teach each other languages, and tell cultural and travel stories. It is a supportive community where you are likely to form some of the most valuable friendships of your life. We have an entire team of Employee Experience representatives who work in our Staff Village to support positive community life within our residence footprint, and assist you with your out-of-work needs, including keeping you busy through our Mountain Experience Program.
The Kananaskis Valley offers a unique living experience. The Village itself is an Olympic-style mountain village that includes the Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, Kananaskis Village Centre, an Outdoor Gear rental shop, Post Office, and a little public library. A beautiful 5-minute walk separates the Kananaskis Village and our Staff Residence Village. Our mountain community consists of 3 buildings offering staff an affordable place to live. We offer a remote mountain living experience, which is heaven for the adventure seekers. We are a 30-minute drive from Canmore, 45 minutes from Banff, and one hour from Calgary.
We offer a small store that serves all of your basic needs. It is well stocked with healthy food options, and offers treats when the mood strikes. Bear Necessities is the hub of residence life. It is open from 11:00am to 9:00pm (subject to change based on business levels), and is a place where you can get information, sign out sporting equipment (subject to availability), and sign out a vacuum to clean your room. This will also be the spot where you “check-in” upon your first arrival to Kananaskis.
Non Smoking Environment
As we are a community that supports our people’s health & wellness, we offer a completely non-smoking indoor environment.
Common Rooms & On-site Gym
We have a common room within residence where you can gather together with your friends to enjoy a game of pool, play music, hook up your gaming system, or take in a movie in the lounge. We also have an Employee Gym space, complete with cardio equipment, weights and Pilates and yoga equipment and space. Residents are also encouraged to use the Summit Spa & Fitness Centre located at the hotel, however, guests of the hotel get first priority.
