The license of occupation will allow the Alpine Club of Canada to occupy and operate the national historic site.

Twin Falls Teahouse National Historic Site is located near the foot of Twin Falls in the upper Yoho Valley of Yoho National Park. The National Historic Site has been a destination for generations of hikers exploring the Yoho backcountry, and is an outstanding example of the style of construction and lodging typical of early wilderness recreation in the Rocky Mountains.

“Parks Canada is pleased to work closely with the Alpine Club of Canada to help Canadians discover and connect with history and nature at Twin Falls Teahouse National Historic Site,” said Amy. Krause, Lake Louise Yoho Kootenay Field Unit Engagement Officer.
