Tourism Rossland has a new website.

The new website is part of the work that Tourism Rossland has been doing in the last year to integrate the overall branding of the community.

The design ties in with the existing sign strategy, logos and colours which are seen through out the community.

Deanne Steven from Tourism Rossland said the new website has been a great project to showcase all that the community has going on for visitors.

“We really wanted to highlight the diversity of activities that we have to offer all year round,” she said. “New additions to the website include Google photo tours, disc golf, Kettle Valley Railway, hiking, and the aquatic centre, to name a few.”

In addition, Tourism Rossland has integrated all of the trail data from the Kootenay Columbia Trails Society to assist trail users with their navigation.

“In the next few weeks we will also be launching a mobile version of the site which will be optimized for handheld devices,” she said.

Shelley Ackerman created the design and David Livingstone from Empire New Media did the coding, as well, Kootenay Rockies Tourism provided assistance with the funding for the project.

Tourism Rossland is Rossland’s Destination Marketing Organisation whose mission is to work in a fair and unbiased manner to grow Rossland’s year round tourism economy within the context of the community’s vision and values.
