Terrace, BC (PRWEB) April 10, 2009
Terrace BC's Kermodei Tourism Society has announced the release of the 2009 Terrace Travel Guide. The official guide, which highlights Terrace hotels, attractions and surrounding region, was printed on paper certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC). UV ink was used to print the travel guide, a process which eliminates the emission of petroleum distillates and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that occur in air-drying.
"This publication demonstrates our promise to the environment," says Luke Houlden, Executive Director for Kermodei Tourism. We value our forests and environment. By using FSC paper and UV ink, Kermodei Tourism has taken huge strides in helping to protect it."
The City of Terrace is located amidst the thick forests and steep mountain slopes on a series of terraces that were shaped by glaciers thousands of years ago. Terrace is one of the oldest, continuously occupied places in the world. Rich in First Nations history, Terrace is a true multicultural centre for the entire northwest area of British Columbia. Terrace's natural setting offers exceptional salmon fishing, hiking & biking trails for all levels of outdoor enthusiasts and unbelievable downhill skiing at Shames Mountain. Terrace boasts superior back country skiing adventures, an 18 hole mountain golf course, and features a wide range of retail businesses, restaurants and entertainment choices as well.
The 2009 Terrace Travel guide showcases the best of Terrace, BC. The guide reveals that Terrace is famous for its mysterious white Kermodei bears, otherwise known as Spirit bears, Moksgm'ol or ghost bears, which are found only in this part of the world. The guide also features fun on land, in the air and in the water with some the world's best salmon fishing.
"Full of great information and large, colourful images, this publication is a must read for anyone wanting to know about Terrace, BC and what we have to offer," adds Houlden.
The 2009 Terrace Travel Guide is available in most Visitor Centres throughout British Columbia and some communities in Alberta. The guide is also available for download in PDF format on the Kermodei Tourism website.
