Fairmont Hot Springs Resort

Extensive family resort with loads to do

Save to my Account

The rambling Fairmont Hot Springs Resort spills over the Columbia River’s broad flood plain with golf courses, and climbs into its craggy snow-capped backdrop with a little ski resort.

It’s a reasonably luxurious place, though the prices of its cheapest rooms aren’t extravagant, and its glut of amenities include several restaurants and so make it a
fantastic base for a family holiday.

Most of all the resort is famous for its
bubbling, sweet-smelling hot springs (daily 8am–10pm; $10). Split into pools for diving, laps, kids and soaking, they have lured bathers here from far and wide since 1922.

The springs also lend their name to a small settlement beside the resort and Hwy-93: also called Fairmont Hot Springs and with a handful of restaurants and a supermarket.

The resort itself centres on a rustic, but fairly high-end, lodge with a range of lofts, suites and standard rooms, and a scatter of buildings beside. These include summer cabins and the buildings for an RV-only campground (sites $30–55). The resort campground that allows tents is the Spruce Grove Campground, 2km south of the lodge and with its own outdoor pool (sites $31–48).

In summer resort attractions include golf, tennis, spa facilities, guided nature hikes, bike rental and horse riding.

In winter the family-orientated ski area’s two lifts provide a 304m vertical descent and 12 runs over 300 acres (beginner/intermediate/expert 20/60/20 %). There’s
also an entry-level terrain park and pipe and the resort’s also in easy striking distance of Panorama and Kimberley for days on the slopes there.

Other winter activities include 6km track-set cross-country ski
trails (more close by), an ice-skating rink, and resort-organised snowmobile tours and sleigh
