History[edit]

RCR was previously owned by Charlie Locke before he saw some financial trouble, and after a period in bankruptcy protection, was bailed out by Alberta billionaire N. Murray Edwards.

RCR previously operated Fortress Mountain Resort, Lake Louise Mountain Resort, Wintergreen Ski Area and West Louise Lodge.

On December 29, 2011 RCR purchased Kicking Horse Mountain Resort from original developer Ballast Nedam.[4]
