Fairmont Hot Springs

Fairmont Hot Springs

Over 100 years ago hot springs were discovered at Fairmont. The Kootenai Indians used these springs for medicinal and healing purposes. Today it is Canada's largest natural mineral hot pool with temperatures ranging from 35C to 48C. There are 4 pools - a hot soaking pool, a diving pool, and a large swimming and lap pool. There is also another hot soaking pool for hotel guests only. Located approximately 100 meters above the resort is Fairmont Heritage Baths, which is the original site of the hot springs.
