Winter brings new opportunities for Canadians to enjoy their natural surroundings, and in the Canadian Rockies, snow transforms the alpine landscape into a veritable playground. After a day happily spent outdoors, there is no better way to warm up than sitting by the fireplace in a warm and welcoming ski chalet. With its rustic charm, a chalet—such as the one depicted in this coin—offers the perfect opportunity to reconnect with family and friends, or simply with nature itself. This is the third coin in a series that celebrates some of Canada’s most awe-inspiring natural landscapes in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Stéphanie Gauvin features an idyllic mid-winter scene set in the wilderness of the Canadian Rockies. Surrounded by the snow-covered alpine landscape with its towering trees, a wood ski chalet radiates a rustic charm and warmth that was a welcome sight for one skier, whose skis stand upright in the snow as a testament to a day spent outdoors. But daylight is fading; as it descends into the horizon, the late afternoon sun casts long shadows with its colourful glow, which infuses the scene with a remarkable variety of hues that add to the overall artistry of this engraved scene.

A valued gift for outdoor enthusiasts, travellers, collectors and loved ones who share an appreciation for landscape art.
