Fairmont Hot Springs is a year-round resort village situated, a short distance, south of the community of Invermere, BC, Canada in the Columbia Valley, Kootenay region of British Columbia.
Fairmont Hot Springs adventures and activities include relaxation, golfing, downhill skiing, snowboarding and xc skiing. The popular recreation resort includes the largest odourless hot spring pools in Canada!
The hot mineral pools rest at the headwaters of the Columbia River. Looming high above the hot springs are the cliffs and peaks of the Rocky and Purcell Mountains - home to glaciers, waterfalls, hoodoos, snowcapped peaks, crashing rivers and endless wilderness adventures.
Long ago, the hot springs were first used by the First Nation people as healing waters. The pools were once referred to as the ‘Land of Smoking Waters’. The First Nation people believed the waters could cure illness and body pains.
