Valemount is surrounded by mountains – the Canadian Rocky Mountains, the Cariboo Mountains and the Monashee Mountains. The Visitor Information Centre is an excellent viewpoint for Mount Pierre Elliott Trudeau, which is located in the Premier Mountain Range. This mountain range was named to honour some of our past Canadian Prime Ministers.
