A 10-15 minute drive in opposite directions will take you to the World Renowned Radium Hot Springs, or Fairmont Hot Springs. Both offering natural, clear, mineral rich hot water from the Rocky Mountains. Each community also has golf courses and quaint casual dining available as well.
20 Minutes away is the Iconic Panorama Mountain Resort. 3000 acres of terrain, over 4000 vertical feet of fall line with a view of a thousand peaks! Its a quiet ski hill with lots of skiing and short line ups! If your family requires a smaller resort, Fairmont Ski Hill offers affordable skiing for your family.
Invermere is a lovely town just 10 minutes away. the Main Street is lined with galleries, quaint stores, an outstanding bakery (we love the Skor Cake and the Pretzels!) and sporting goods stores. There is a full sized grocery store for everything you want and a large gourmet grocery store for those special cheeses, dips, local BC beverages and meats.
In the summer there is a market both in Radium and in Invermere. both are outstanding and are worth a visit for arts, crafts and delicious foods!
In the summer the condo is all about the private beach with a change room and bathroom on site. Or golfing, or hiking, or chilling, or mountain biking, or kayaking. It's whatever your vacation needs to be.
Come visit the Columbia Valley surrounded by Canada's Rocky Mountains. The drive from Calgary airport is just 2.5 hours away, and may just be your favourite part of the trip. You will travel through large cattle ranches along The Trans Canada Highway, into the Rocky Mountains, through Banff National Park and into the Glacier tipped peaks of Kootenay National Park, lastly past Radium Hot Springs opening into the Columbia Valley. The drive is spectacular, feel free to stop along the way and go for some of the hikes noted along the highway. One of our shorter favourites, is Marble Canyon. Be aware and on the lookout for wildlife. Drive cautiously and please don't stop or feed the animals.
Make yourself at home. We love and respect our home and vacation property. We don't jump on our furniture and certainly wouldn't jump on yours. We store our outdoor and sporting gear in the garage (please note that kayaks and golf cart are for our personal use and due to insurance reasons, are unable to give you permission to use). We expect that you will do the same. We don't smoke and expect you would also not smoke in or within 10meters of our condo. Please enjoy your vacation and our home as we do. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to mail us.
