Tourism[edit]

Although now emerging as a preferred tourist destination, the area has retained its charm and character. Restaurants, fishing, hiking, swimming, off-road exploring, and cross-country skiing are just some of the many activities available. The favourable weather patterns and local alpine ski areas make this a top year-round destination.
