The mineral hot springs at this family-style resort, located in the southeast corner of the province 260 miles from Spokane, Wash., are the largest natural hot springs in Canada. Guests can soak or splash in one of three naturally-fed outdoor pools ranging from 86 to 102 degrees F. Over 1.5 million gallons of crystal-clear, odorless, mineral-rich B.C. waters, renowned for their therapeutic qualities, flow through the pools daily. Bathers can gaze through the steam to prominent peaks in the Stanford Range of the Canadian Rockies. As for golf, Mountainside, the older of the resort’s two appealing courses, is carved into rolling foothills and is marked by tree-lined fairways and small crowned greens. The course was updated last year by Doug Carrick. Riverside, a walker-friendly layout spread across the floor of the Windermere Valley, hugs the banks of the mighty Columbia River, which snakes through the fairways. Creekside is a sporty nine-hole par-3 course popular with kids and beginners.
