A new face is present in the Crowsnest Pass, especially at Blairmore’s post office. Tracy Hamilton is the new postmaster working at Blairmore’s Canada Post office and she says that she is liking the Pass so far.
“It’s really nice,” said Hamilton, who recently moved here from Sylvan Lake. “It’s like I am camping all the time.”
Hamilton is originally from Calgary, but moved to Sylvan Lake to work in the oil fields as a fleet manager. She stayed in that position for the better part of two years.
“It was long hours, and I was on call 24/7,” Hamilton said. In 2005, she moved on to work for Canada Post. She started on a termed position but was postmaster after just five days of her starting date.
Hamilton explained that because of the tourism at Sylvan Lake, the post office there was extremely busy. She said that although the population of Sylvan Lake is only about 12, 000, with tourists, it can reach 30,000 in a day.

After Sylvan Lake, Hamilton lived in Blackfalds, Bowden and Eckville. Then Hamilton applied for a position in the Crowsnest Pass, and was hired to be the postmaster at Blairmore’s post office.
“Crowsnest Pass is beautiful,” she said, adding that she just recently saw all the tourist attractions in the Crowsnest Pass, including the Bellevue Mine Tour and visiting the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre.
“Every morning I get up and walk to work, and think, wow, what a gorgeous place to live.”
She also mentioned that she is an avid golfer and hiker. “I might have to get back into fishing too,” she said. “Here is a great place to do that.”
“Coming from the congestion of Sylvan Lake, this place is a great change. I love it here,” she said.
