Neil MacLaine

Neil MacLaine

Director of Marketing &Tourism

Neil first fell in love with Bragg Creek in 1982 when he stopped for gas at the Old Trading Post. At the time he was in the Army and moving lots, but a dream of returning began to take root. In 1988 he was posted back to Calgary and bought a chunk of raw land on which to homestead, which they called M&M Ranch. When the Army moved from Calgary to Edmonton he and the family decided to stay, and since finding a job seemed like way too much work he set his mind on self-employment. Harnessing his love of adventure, the mountains and horses, he created Moose Mountain Horseback Adventures, which has grown over the past 27 years into a thriving enterprise. He has been a chamber member for most of those years and is also president of the Cowboy Trail Tourism Association and a director of The Alberta Outfitters Association.

Director

I arrived in Bragg Creek January 1991. The month and year I opened The Bavarian inn Restaurant.

 

I am a MasterChef from Germany. I have a business degree, as well a degree as a dietitian/ nutritionist.

I have been involved with the chamber, off and on the board for many years.

The taste of Bragg Creek was an event I started 2014. My last portfolio with the chamber was director of tourism. The visitor ambassador with the orange bike started then. November 2019 my wife Pam and I restarted The Bavarian Inn Restaurant. In the meantime rebranded as

The Bav The Tav

The Bavarian inn.

November 2020 I rejoined the board. No portfolio yet.
