Watch main street live on our webcam
Crowsnest Pass Herald Front Page
Our industry is changing and so, by default, is the Pass Herald. No longer are we just a handheld newspaper. We now also offer a digital version of the paper and, our newest iniative, a real-time webcam.

At the beginning of the year, we started to sell e-subscriptions. The launch of this new form of digital news has been more successful than I imagined. We have over 100 e-subscriptions throughout the world, and I mean that literally. Just today, we launched our “live cam” so that people can see what’s happening on Main Street, Blairmore.

What, you may ask, is a “live cam”? Well, if you look up above our building, you will see a large pole with a camera attached. It’s our 24/7 visual feed of what’s happening on Main Street in Blairmore. You can now sit at your computer, access the live cam from our website for free and watch the lighting of the gazebo at Christmas. Or you can watch how busy the Community Market is throughout the summer.

You can even watch the start of the Sinister 7 race that begins on Main Street Blairmore. The camera is so advanced that you can see the Pass Powderkeg Ski Area, Crowsnest Mountain, the access into Blairmore and how the weather is moving throughout the area, all this from the comfort of your armchair on your smart phone or computer.

The webcam will go live this week and we are very interested in how many hits we get. We will keep you updated on whether this is a popular service for our readers.

The camera will be running every day, all day and you can go into the site whenever you want to have a look-see. It’s tough in the newspaper industry, so we are looking at new and innovative ways to draw you to our product.

Simply log onto passherald.ca, hit the link to our webcam and enjoy the view of the Crowsnest Pass!
