LEGACY SHOW: All Aboard the Alberta Train
This broadcast is a favorite legacy show that we produced under our old name Travel’n On and before re-branding as WORLD FOOTPRINTS. We’ll share our experience and interaction we had with few interesting people on Alberta Train.
During our coverage of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, Travel’n On made some new friends while traveling aboard the Rocky Mountaineer Whistler Express aka Alberta Train between Vancouver and Whistler. You’ll meet Sandy Best, Director of P.R. for Lake Louise, Vern Kimball, the CEO of the greatest outdoor show on earth, The Calgary Stampede, and celebrity chef Ned Bell, star of the Canadian Food Network show Cook Like a Chef.
Rocky Mountaineer aka Alberta Train is a privately owned, luxury rail service which runs on some exclusive routes through the Rocky Mountains. You can book a journey on Rocky Mountaineer as part of a holiday package. Sit back and relax with impeccable service while seeing and hearing about the fascinating geology and wildlife of the mountains. The Rainforest to Gold Rush route follows the Canadian National (CN)-owned rail line from Vancouver to Whistler, up through the Coastal Mountains to Quesnel and then on to Jasper in the Rocky Mountains.
Vern Kimball has been chief executive officer of the Calgary Stampede since 2006. As CEO, he is responsible to the board of directors for leading the organization. Prior to this role, Vern was chief operating officer for two years, chief financial officer for 10 years and held significant roles in Food Services, Sales and Facilities, and long-range planning since joining the organization in 1986.
