Additional InformationVisitors will experience what it was like to be in the coal mining town of Frank before, during and after the great rock avalanche. Learn why Turtle Mountain fell and if another rockslide will come down. Two award-winning, audio-visual presentations are shown throughout the day in the Centre’s 70-seat, high definition theatre. "On the Edge of Destruction" is a powerful, 30-minute docudrama that recreates the remarkable night the rockslide came down. "In the Mountain's Shadow" is a visually stunning, 25-minute presentation that vibrantly presents the history of the spectacular Crowsnest Pass from immigration through coal mining to rum running. A 1.5 kilometre trail winds through the rocks of the Frank Slide, giving visitors an up-close look at the awesome power of nature.
