Bugaboo Provincial Park

Bugaboo is a first-class mountaineering region, situated in the rugged Purcell Mountains in the BC Rockies region of British Columbia.
The Purcells, bounded by the Rocky Mountain Trench in the east, are actually ancient compared to the much younger Rocky Mountains, dating back 1,500 million years when the only form of life on the planet was algae. It was not until the dinosaurs era that the Rocky Mountains were born, some 70 million years ago. Heavy snowfall of the 'Columbia Wet Belt' continues to support large remnants of the vast alpine glaciers that shaped the rugged Purcell Mountains.
