Fairmont Hot Springs Resort, British Columbia

Ski & Soak

Fairmont Hot Springs Resort and the surrounding area is an irresistible winter destination, a place to turn the winter blues in to the winter yahoos!

Fairmont Hot Springs is the Powder Highway Base Camp. The family-friendly runs of the Fairmont Hot Springs Ski Area are ideal for beginners and for seasoned down-hillers eager to fine-tune their skills. Four world-class winter resorts — Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, Panorama Mountain Village, Kimberley Alpine Resort, and Fernie Alpine Resort — are only a short drive (30 to 120 minutes) drive from Fairmont Hot Springs.

Fairmont Hot Springs has expanded it's winter programs to take advantage of one of British Columbia`s best winter recreation areas. At the Ski Area, Aquafina SnowPlanet has been further improved and is the best place in the Columbia Valley to learn how to ski or board. Built around a magic carpet, learning becomes fun on SnowPlanet, with alien-faced flags and cushions set up to help the little ones master the concept of riding on snow. We also added the Rockstar Terrain Park to help those intermediate skiers and boarders fine-tune their skills and work on their airtime.

The Resort is home to the best apres ski in the valley, soaking in the soothing mineral waters of the hot springs. Every ski pass includes FREE same-day admission to the natural hot springs.
