Nelson, British Columbia
Swim Meet: May 26-27, 2018
Travel to Nelson takes about 2.5 hours. Warm-ups start at 8:20 am, so if you're planning to drive up Saturday morning, be sure to go via the Paterson border crossing north of Northport because it's open 24 hours a day (the Nelway crossing doesn't open until 8am and it's an hour to Nelson). However, if you plan to drag a trailer, and will be leaving Friday, you could take the route via Metaline Falls and cross at Nelway. Both ways take about the same amount of time. The route via Nelway is easier for trailers because you don't have to climb the pass at Rossland (north of Paterson).
The Nelson Aquatic Center is within easy walking distance of downtown Nelson which has a lot of great stores, coffee shops, and restaurants. It is located at: 305 Hall St, Nelson, BC V1L 5X4, Canada
