Explore – Swiss Edelweiss Village
Edelweiss Swiss Village was home to the Swiss Mountain Guides who opened up the Canadian Rockies to mountaineering during the first decades of the 20th century. In 2022, the Digital Heritage Preservation Research Group at the University of Calgary began working with the Swiss Edelweiss Village Foundation to preserve the six chalets that comprise the site. This past October, our team returned to capture the entire site using a GeoSlam Horizon mobile lidar system with Zeb camera, as well as a Z+F 5010X and Leica Blk360 scanner. Stay tuned as we add more content to each Chalet project page.
