What is So unique about the Creston Valley's time zone?

Welcome to Creston Valley, where time stands still! Okay, that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but hear us out. While we are on Mountain Time like our eastern neighbors, we have chosen not to observe Daylight Savings Time (DST) during the summer. We're not the only ones opting out of DST - the majority of the U.S. State of Arizona and the Province of Saskatchewan do the same!

What does this mean for you? It means we keep a consistent time throughout the year - Isummer we pass on "Skipping Ahead" for Daylight Savings, consequently syncing up with the Pacific Time Zone and soaking up all those long days! Then, when winter rolls in we also skip the "Fall Back", keep that extra hour of precious daylight, and line back up with the rest of the Mountain Time Zone without losing a wink of sleep!

So What is THe Current Time in Creston?


So now that you are crystal clear on the Creston Valley's unique time zone (we hope?), you probably still want to know what time it is. Check out the handy multi-time zone clock for current local  time and for comparison with our daylight observant neighbours in both the Pacific time zone (Seattle) and Mountain time zone (Calgary)!
