From the first steam powered boats launched on Kootenay Lake in the 1880s, to the end of the era with the SS Moyie's retirement in 1957, each vessel had a specific route and role that it played in the transportation of people and goods. Kootenay Lake routes covered four geographic areas, some of which overlapped and others of which quickly disappeared as rail lines or roads were developed.
