The Cascade Mountains were formed by the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate subducting underneath the pacific plate. Eventually the rain and snow lead to water erosion of the land that created the Tulameen River. The river was created by the higher elevation of water [rainfall and snow] going to a lower elevation [created by running water] down the mountains. The businesses that could run here could be river rafting because of the rough waters of the Tulameen River, and probably hiking and fishing gear shops for people camping on the mountain.
The weather is made of mild summers [depending on the altitude] and cool but not cold winters, with a stable temperature range with few unusual temperatures on the odd day or two. There is also heavy rainfall that can occur because the mountains keep the clouds trapped. Some businesses that could run there are farming because of the heavy rainfall that could water the crops naturally so less work for farmers. Another business could be ATV and dirt bike rentals for the summer and snowmobile rentals for the winter because it is a moderate temperature place where you get snow, but you do not get too cold in the winter, and you don’t get to hot in summer either.
Coalmont has a thick forest that has a plentiful amount of shrubbery to pick berries from. The thick forest is there because of the good soil that came down the mountains from water flow and became dirt that had all the nutrients so the forest could grow thick shrubbery. Two businesses that could run are forestry companies because of the abundance of trees. Another business that could run is a jam company with all the berry bushes that are there.
