Where it is
112 Dyrgas Gate, Canmore
Canmore’s Three Sisters community offers all the appeal of mountain living mixed with luxury style and easy access to amenities. Initially, the iconic Three Sisters peaks were known by a different name. In 1883, Albert Rogers was the first settler to name the mountains “Three Nuns” after seeing how the snow-covered peaks resembled three praying nuns. In 1886, on a map belonging to Canadian geologist and surveyor George Mercer Dawson, the peaks were renamed to their current moniker, “the Three Sisters.” Today, the Three Sisters community is expecting some new commercial development to add a new grocery store, shops and restaurants, complete with mature trees, pathways and great views.
