Corner Brook, Newfoundland's second largest city, is located on the south side of Humber Arm in scenic Bay of Islands. It was founded as a logging town in the 1860's. The city is hilly and is almost entirely surrounded by the Long Range Mountains, part of the Appalachian chain. The main industry is the paper mill. Just outside town is Marble Mountain, which prides itself as the best downhill ski area east of the Rocky Mountains. The Humber River, one of the most famous salmon fishing rivers in the world, flows right past Corner Brook.
