Welcome to the Kootenays!
Put your best dance step forward!
Move the good groove back into the community! Remember, you represent the Shambhala community! When you arrive and leave our Kootenay towns and villages, help spread the SHAMBHALOVE~! Please be respectful of private property, camp only in designated areas and be mindful of “Small Town meets Shambhala”.
Don’t worry if you’ve never been to the area – our Shambassadors can help you at
