W

elcome to “valley time.” Life unfolds at its own pace here. Maybe it’s something to do with the magnificent mountain ranges rising up to the east and west, or North America’s longest wetlands lazily winding its way through the valley floor. Whatever the reason, it’s magical. One of the most beautiful gems in the crown of natural landscapes that the province of British Columbia proudly wears, the Columbia Valley is a destination not to miss. With just three points of vehicle access — from the north via Golden, east from Alberta through Kootenay National Park, and from the south via Cranbrook, the commercial capital of the East Kootenay — the valley beckons anyone with a taste for adventure, tranquility, rural landscapes and natural wilderness. Elegance? We have that too. The Columbia Valley is renowned for its resorts. And hot springs. At the historical heart of Radium Hot Springs are the famous hot pools in Sinclair Canyon where a relaxing dip can be followed by a scenic walking tour of the pedestrian-friendly Radium village. The famous mineral pools at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort are complemented by the resort’s three golf courses, two RV parks, ski area and quaint community centre boasting several of the valley’s best restaurants. For nature lovers, head to the Lussier Hot Springs in Whiteswan Lake Provincial Park where three natural pools next to the rushing Lussier River provide an unbeatable backdrop. Whiteswan is also famous for its ice fishing in the wonderful winter months, as is Lake Windermere, where ice shacks scattered across its frozen surface are the passing scenery for cross country skiers and ice skating enthusiasts making their way around the lake’s Whiteway — the groomed snow and ice track that, depending on the conditions, totals anywhere from 17 to 31 kilometres.

Columbia Valley

History

Pack horses are herded across the Vermillion River in Kootenay National Park.

T

he Columbia Valley was originally home to First Nations groups, serving as a traditional hunting and fishing ground. Both the Shuswap Band and the Ktunaxa Nation made their living from the land, which provided food, medicine and materials for shelter and clothing. Both First Nations continue to have thriving communities, and place names such as Skookumchuck and Spillimacheen mark their influence on the region. The fur trade brought the first European arrivals to the area. In 1807, legendary explorer and fur trader David Thompson built Kootenae House on the banks of the Columbia River near Invermere. From there he traded goods for pelts with the First Nations and surveyed the mountains and streams in the area. Early European settlement was sporadic. From the nearest train station in Sandpoint, Idaho, a number of small ranches and stopping houses began to crop up along the pack trail through the valley, up to the construction site for the Canadian Pacific Railway near Golden. However, it was only after the railway was completed in 1885 that the first towns were established. Places such as Windermere (1883), Athalmer (1888), Fairmont (1889), Peterborough

(1899, now Wilmer), and Invermere (1909) were added to the map. The early economy supporting these growing communities was based on the abundance of ore in the mountains as well as subsistence farming and ranching. A number of land settlement schemes in the 1910s drew immigrants here to make a living farming fruit. Although less-than-ideal agricultural conditions prevented these ventures from thriving, many newcomers stayed to make a living however they could. In the 1920s, lumber became another important natural resource and economic mainstay. The natural beauty of the area also beckoned and, in 1905, local business-

man Robert Randolph Bruce began to lobby for a motor road to be built between Banff and Windermere. After years of setbacks, his efforts resulted in the creation of Kootenay National Park in 1919, as well as the opening of the first road across the Central Rockies in 1923. Just three years earlier in 1920, the valley saw the opening of the Canadian Pacific Railway bungalow camp on the shores of Lake Windermere. The central clubhouse of this historic site has since been moved to the Dorothy Lake area in Invermere (near Kinsmen Beach) and restored. The shores of Dorothy Lake also feature the historic building known as Pynelogs. Built as a private residence in 1914, Pynelogs is currently a Cultural Centre and Art Gallery. The valley ventured into year-round tourism in the sixties. A rope tow and small warming hut were constructed at Panorama in 1962, followed by the first chair lift five years later. In 1964, a new pool complex and ski area were built at Fairmont. Golf courses at both resorts soon followed, adding to the growing number of fairways spreading throughout the valley.

As visitors came to see, explore and use the natural attractions of the valley in the years after the Second World War, an increasing number also looked to stay here longer than a couple of weeks. Summer homes were built on the east side of Lake Windermere. Today, part-time residents own approximately 70 per cent of housing in the valley. The magnificent scenery, lake access, natural hot springs and proximity to world-renowned mountainous terrain continues to attract visitors to the region. To learn more about early settlement and the region’s diverse stories, visit the Windermere Valley Museum in Invermere, the Golden and District Museum to the north, the Kimberley Heritage Museum and the Kimberley Underground Railway to the south. In Cranbrook, the Canadian Museum of Rail Travel, the Cranbrook Art Museum, and Fort Steele Heritage Town are engaging destinations for the whole family. ~Alex Weller, Windermere Valley Museum [All photos courtesy of the museum]

Golden

Kicking Horse Pedestrian Bridge, Golden

T

he oldest and most northern town in the Columbia Valley, Golden sits at the confluence of the Columbia and Kicking Horse rivers, surrounded by the Canadian Rockies, Selkirk and Purcell mountain ranges. Well-known as a paradise for outdoor adventure activities, it’s also a historic settlement, lived in and loved by a community proud of its heritage of intrepid exploration and mountain tourism, one that has defined the area for over a century. In 2014, Golden is holding its first annual Golden Mountain Festival to celebrate not only its history, but the many facets that define Golden as an authentic mountain town. The festival takes place May 18th and 19th with the theme “Celebrating Golden’s Swiss Guides.” The Kicking Horse pass and river were named for Palliser Expedition geologist, Sir James Hector, who suffered a near-fatal kick from a horse in 1858 while seeking a route through

the mountains for the Canadian Pacific Railway. After the railway to Golden was completed in 1885, the Canadian Pacific Railway brought the first generation of Swiss Mountain Guides to Golden in 1899 to safely guide tourists in the surrounding mountains; and so began the valley’s mountain tourism. The influence of those guides is still evident today in the birth of heli-skiing and the numerous peaks named after the Swiss guides who made the first ascents. Many residents of Golden still bear the names of their Swiss ancestors. The 2014 Golden Mountain Festival will celebrate this heritage. For more information, visit www.tourismgolden.com. Don’t miss downtown Golden in the summer when it becomes alive with a weekly farmers’ market and Summer Kicks, a series of free concerts that takes place in the Spirit Square adjacent to the Kicking Horse Pedestrian Bridge. The bridge, which spans the Kicking Horse River in downtown Golden, is the longest freestanding timber frame bridge in Canada.

The dramatic mountain peaks surrounding Golden are irresistable to hikers, mountain bikers, climbers, hang gliders and paragliders. Another nearby landmark, Mount 7, was the launch site for the first distance hang gliding world record in 1986 and is a great view point from which to see the Columbia Wetlands and the Purcell and Selkirk Mountains. Nearby rivers offer fly-fishing, kayaking, and canoeing; the Kicking Horse River was the first in Western Canada to be recognized as a heritage river and offers world class whitewater rafting on Class I to 4 rapids. Home to world-class heli-skiing and catskiing, Golden also offers 240 kilometres of groomed snowmobile trails and four maintained snowmobiling areas. The renowned Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is located just 15 kilometres outside Golden and features one of the highest vertical drops in North America. In the summer months, the resort offers a downhill mountain bike park and dining at one of the highest restaurants in Canada — the Eagle’s Eye Restaurant.

Add to that over 60 kilometres of maintained cross country mountain biking trails at the Moonraker trail system, a nationally acclaimed golf course and five nearby national parks and you have an ideal outdoor playground. For indoor kicks, the Dogtooth Climbing Gym is the only commercial indoor climbing gym in the valley and offers over 100 top rope climbing routes and a bouldering cave. A visit to Golden isn’t complete without a trip to the Northern Lights Wolf Wildlife Centre or Kicking Horse Mountain Resort’s Grizzly Bear Refuge. A diverse selection of accommodation in both downtown Golden and at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort caters to all budgets, from cozy bed and breakfasts, to reasonably priced motels, hotels and seasonal rentals, to luxury vacation homes, charming lodges and rustic log cabins located in the Blaeberry and Columbia valleys. Visitors can also enjoy many fine shops and eateries, as well as the lively arts and cultural scene. For more information, visit www.tourismgolden.com.

Nestled against the foothills of the majestic Rockies with the Purcell Mountains to the west, the village also has stunning views of the Columbia River Wetlands. With its small-town charm, friendly people and numerous recreational and business opportunities, it’s easy to see why nearly 1,000 year-round residents and almost double that number of second-home owners choose Radium. After it was incorporated in 1990, the village became one of the fastest growing communities in the province. In 2013, the Radium Hot Springs Welcome Centre was ranked the sixth busiest Community Visitor Centre in the province, and is the only centre in B.C. open 362 days a year

Radium Hot Springs Pools T

he famed Radium Hot Springs, located in Kootenay National Park and just a short drive from Radium village, features Canada’s largest mineral springs pool and attracts guests from far and wide. Surrounded by sheer rock walls, these 100 per cent natural, odourless hot springs are both a marvel of nature and an amazing experience to savour at any time of year.

Prior to European contact, First Nations people bathed in the pools, believing the water had healing power. By the late 1800s, the springs had become popular with the area’s first permanent settlers. An Englishman, Roland Stuart, purchased the springs for $160 in 1890 and, by 1914, construction of the first concrete bathing pool, a log bathhouse and a home for a caretaker had been completed. The Aquacourt seen today was completed in 1951 and upgraded in 1997 with hot and cool plunge pools, a gift shop and new reception area.

Open daily in every season and kept between 37 and 40 degrees Celsius, the hot pools are perfect for family outings and an ideal way to unwind after an activity-filled day.

Radium Hot Springs also offers a shallow lounging area perfect for young children, a 25-metre long cool pool complete with a diving board, and spacious change rooms and shower facilities. In the summer months, enjoy a treat from the cafe while sunning yourself on the large patio, or explore the forested walking trail to the nearby Redstreak Campground.

Band

The Kinbasket Shuswap First Nation, or Kenpesq’t, is a member of the Secwépemc (Shuswap) Nation, an interior Salish-speaking nomadic people who traditionally occupied a vast area in the south-central part of British Columbia. Anthropological and archaeological discoveries, particularly the evidence of “kekulis” (semi-underground pithouses), connect the early Shuswap culture and way-of-life to the Upper Columbia Valley.

Photo © Kristian Rasmussen

Chief Pierre Kinbasket and his twin brother Charlie were some of the first permanent settlers of the Kinbasket Clan in the valley. They built pithouses and salmon caches along the Columbia River to Brisco that are still visible today. The Kinbaskets traded and were allies with the Stony Tribe of Alberta, as well as their neighbours, the Akisqnuk — part of the Ktunaxa First Nation — resulting in mixed lineage and affiliations that continue to this day. However, the Kinbasket Shuswap officially withdrew from the Ktunaxa Nation Tribal Council to re-join the Shuswap Nation in 2006. Since contact with the European explorers and settlers, the Shuswap way of life has changed dramatically. Like many other First Nations, the Shuswap Indian Band’s traditional territory has become increasingly committed to tourism and recreation, as well as industrial and resource development. Kinbasket Sewer & Water Company Ltd. is a self-sufficient water supply and sewage treatment plant that services the Windermere subdivisions of Lakeview Meadows, Black Forest Heights and the Cottages at Copper Point, as well as Canadian Tire and the commercial frontage along Athalmer Road. The Kinbasket Development Corporation (KDC) is a wholly owned corporate extension of the Shuswap Indian Band and operates as a regular company independent from band activities. The KDC was created to promote the economic and social welfare of the band. About 20 local businesses, including some

of the highest profile enterprises in the valley such as Home Hardware, Kicking Horse Coffee, Arrowhead Brewing Company, Eagle Ranch Resort and Tim Hortons, operate on Shuswap Band land. Shuswap Woodlands Restoration, a KDC subsidiary, creates employment for band members with ecosystem restoration projects. The Shuswap Band land is also home to the Three Voices of Healing Society, a training and residential treatment centre for Aboriginal peoples. Made up of a chief and two councillors elected every two years, the Shuswap Band Council is the administrative and governing body of the band, which numbers approximately 250 members, with about 150 living on-reserve, 80 off-reserve and 20 on reserves elsewhere.  For more information, visit www.shuswapband.net.

Panorama Mou The iconic Mount Nelson stands tall over the intimate community of Panorama Mountain Village, known for having one of North America’s biggest vertical descents.

Surrounded by the awe-inspiring peaks of the Purcell Mountain Range, the welcoming community of Panorama Mountain Village enjoys an enviable location just a short 20-minute scenic drive from downtown Invermere alongside the spectacular rushing waters of Toby Creek. This full-service resort is a year-round destination for outdoor enthusiasts of all inclinations. The winter brings snowsports fans from around the world to enjoy Panorama’s 4,000 vertical feet of skiing, the fifth largest vertical drop in North America. With more than 2,800 acres of patrolled ski and snowboard terrain, it’s not until you reach the summit of Panorama that you fully realize the magnitude of what the mountain has to offer. The resort is known for its long, groomed runs and has been blessed with perhaps the finest fall line and most consistent pitch in Canada. The mountain has over 120 ski trails, including the 750-plus acres of backcountrystyle glory in Taynton Bowl, once reserved for heli-skiing and now accessible with a lift ticket. For heli-skiers and heli-boarders, Panorama is home to the operations of RK Heliski, a pioneer in the B.C. heli-ski industry for over four decades, and offers easy helicopter access to the magic of the Purcell’s high alpine powder. Panorama’s other winter activities include snowmobiling, snow tubing, and downhill and cross-country skiing. At the base of the mountain is the Panorama Nordic Centre, with 28 kilometres of groomed trails. In the winter 18

months, the complimentary Mountain and Valley Shuttle conveniently links the village to Invermere, ensuring a comfortable and easy commute. There is always a ton of excitement in the resort during the summer with lift-accessed downhill mountain biking and a wide variety of kids’ activities, as well as whitewater rafting, mini golf, fishing, ATV tours, horseback riding, trail walks and climbing. The resort also offers golfing at the award-winning

Invermere

The sunrise over the Canadian Rockies from Kinsmen Beach, Invermere.

A

n unbeatable location on the north shore of Lake Windermere gives the community of Invermere a privileged place on the valley map.

And thanks to its central locale in the Columbia Valley, it’s home to a thriving business centre and an Industrial Park that serves all the surrounding communities.

Gorgeous lake vistas combined with outstanding scenic views of the Canadian Rocky Mountains to the east and the Purcell Mountains to the west make Invermere a popular tourist destination all year long.

Despite its humble beginnings as a small settlement, Invermere gained the grandiose name of Copper City in 1890 in hopes that the wealth of copper in the nearby mountains would one day result in an actual city. Ten years later, the name was changed to Canterbury, after the well-known cathedral city in England.

This picturesque lakeside resort community of 3,400 residents swells to nearly 30,000 during the summer, when seasonal visitors flock to the area to enjoy the fresh air, crystal clear lake waters, jagged mountain peaks and seemingly endless opportunities to recreate or relax in the great outdoors.

This identity crisis was finally solved in 1909 when the name Invermere (Gaelic for “at the mouth of the lake”) was adopted. The town was officially incorporated in 1951.

Wilmer

The Columbia Valley Wetlands National Wildlife Management Area Wilmer Unit is a protected habitat zone.

L

ocated less than five minutes north of Invermere, the historic community of Wilmer was the first community established in the heart of the Columbia Valley. It was 1807 when famed explorer and mapmaker David Thompson founded a Northwest Trading Company post near the site of presentday Wilmer, naming it Kootenae House. This was the first trading post in the Columbia Valley and is now a National Historic Site located on the drive into Wilmer, locally known as Monument Corner. Originally named Peterborough, Wilmer was eventually founded in 1886 and evidence of its long history can been seen in the original late-1800s buildings that pepper its streets. One in particular stands out due to its excellent preservation, the beautiful Delphine Lodge, built in 1899. Wilmer’s most famous resident, Conrad Kain, arrived from Austria in 1909 with the promise of employment as the Alpine Club of Canada’s first professional guide. Over the next quarter century, Kain made climbing history and is credited with the first ascents of many nearby peaks, including Bugaboo Spire and Mount Farnham. The Conrad Kain Cairn and Park in the centre of Wilmer is dedicated to his memory, as is a permanent exhibition at Inver-

26

mere’s Windermere Valley Museum and a cairn on Highway 95, just north of Radium. Today’s Wilmer is a close-knit and familyoriented fully residential community with all the convenience of being in close proximity to Invermere’s stores, restaurants, art galleries and entertainment just a few minutes drive away. Local amenities include a community hall, a kids’ playground and an outdoor skating rink. Its location on the edge of the Columbia River Wetlands provides ample opportunity for bird watching and wildlife viewing. Nature enthusiasts can while away the hours seeking out the hundreds of species found locally, including the bald eagle and the endangered peregrine falcon, American badger and leopard frog. The 787-hectare Wilmer unit of the Columbia National Wildlife Area protects some of Canada’s most valuable natural habitat for migrating waterfowl, fish, plants and species at risk. Wilmer is also a great staging point for backcountry adventures in quading, snowmobiling, hiking and more. Located five kilometres west of Wilmer is Lake Enid, a popular day-use area known for its dock, campsites and picturesque trail that loops around the lake, ideal for hiking or mountain biking in the summer and ice skating and cross country skiing in the winter months.

The public beach in Windermere is one of the most popular in the valley. It’s perfect in the summer heat, with pleasant green spaces, picnic tables, washroom facilities, a playground and a swimming area. Easy lake access makes this a great spot for any lake-based water sport. With its spectacular north and south views of the entire valley, nearby Mt. Swansea is a locals’ favourite for hiking, biking, hang gliding and paragliding. The Windermere Valley Golf Course situated at its base, with its beautifully maintained fairways, promises a laid back and scenic golf experience. During the winter, Windermere provides the perfect base for excursions, either to nearby Panorama Mountain Village, the ski area at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort, or the Whiteway (see page 69 for more information). The first commercial buildings constructed in the valley were built in Windermere as early as 1883, with a number surviving to this day. Still to be spotted are the White House Hotel and the old RCMP barracks. Many of Windermere’s other original buildings have been converted into beautiful homes. Today, the community is well-equipped with a community hall, a grocery store, an elementary school, the historic White House pub, highway gas stations, a bowling alley, a roadside amusement park, and a smattering of places to eat. Those looking for a place to rest their head will find a selection of bed-and-breakfasts, motels

and campgrounds. With its new residential subdivisions and renovation properties, this growing community is increasingly popular with seasonal home owners.

he serene community of Windermere, rich in heritage, arts and outdoor recreation, is located eight kilometres south of Invermere on Highway 93/95 on the eastern shore of Lake Windermere.

If you love a good story, stop by the pretty St. Peter’s Church — also known as The Stolen Church. The building was taken from the town of Donald, near Golden, by Rufus Kimpton for his wife Celina. Dismantled and transported to the valley via rail, wagon and riverboat, the church was reassembled in Windermere in 1900. History buffs should also visit the cemetery on the beautiful Windermere Point. The tombstones tell the story of early settlers in the Columbia Valley. And don’t miss the community’s annual Windermere Fall Fair & Scarecrow Festival in September, a day-long celebration with vendors, live music, fun activities and more.

Members of the Akisqnuk First Nation near Fairmont in 1914.

Akisqnuk First Nation

T

he people of the Akisqnuk First Nation are members of the Ktunaxa (pronounced too-na-ha) Nation who, for thousands of years, lived a nomadic lifestyle in their traditional territory, which extends through the Kootenay Region of British Columbia into southern Alberta and parts of the American states of Montana, Idaho and Washington. A growing First Nation, the Akisqnuk First Nation is comprised of approximately 300 members. Their native Ktunaxa language, spoken by Ktunaxa people throughout the traditional territory, is a unique First Nation language that cannot be linked to any other native language in North America. The Akisqnuk First Nation covers over 8,000 acres of the most beautiful land in the Columbia Valley. From its 14 kilometres of pristine shoreline along Lake Windermere and the Columbia River to the base of the Rocky Mountains, the Akisqnuk First Nation territory is 28

spectacular. In fact, the First Nation is the largest single landholder in the Columbia Valley. A short drive from the airports in Calgary, Alberta and Cranbrook, B.C., the Akisqnuk First Nation is ideally situated in the heart of the Columbia Valley. Bordering the communities of Windermere to the north and Fairmont Hot Springs to the south, the Akisqnuk First Nation enjoys excellent working relationships with its regional partners in both business and government, and is host to ever-broadening business opportunities. A regional water powerhouse, the Akisqnuk First Nation controls two large water systems, including the state-of-the-art Central Area Water System completed in 2010. The First Nation is home to the successful Indian Beach Estates subdivision, which is adjacent to Windermere and forms a neighbourhood in that community. Indian Beach Estates offers its leaseholders a stable and secure long-term, federal government-guaranteed land leasing partnership. Photo Š Kristian Rasmussen

Fairmont Hot Springs

The Fairmont Ridge has the most prominent peaks in the Stanford Range of the Canadian Rockies.

Fairmont is home to the world-renowned Fairmont Hot Springs Resort, and a community of seasonal and year-round residents who delight in the pleasant surroundings and friendly resort atmosphere. The mineral hot pools that first drew settlers to Fairmont can be enjoyed at the resort, which is home to one of Canada’s largest hot springs complexes, with nearly 1,000 square metres of odourless pools. Those enjoying the soothing 35 to 45 degree Celsius waters have a marvellous view of snow-capped mountain peaks as the backdrop. In 2012, the community was put to the test by a debris flow, but unquestionably came out better than ever. As a result, a new and improved RV park entrance and pedestrian footbridge, and changes to the Mountainside Golf Course by acclaimed architect Doug

Carrick are just a few more reasons why Fairmont is one of the must-visit places in the valley. It was 1887 when George Geary homesteaded the land around the natural springs now known as Fairmont Hot Springs. But it wasn’t until the early 1900s that the springs’ tourism potential was recognized by William Heap Holland, an eccentric English cotton millionaire. The inventive entrepreneur drafted the valley’s first promotional brochure, which helped to draw scores of British tourists to the area. Starting in 1912, Geary harnessed the springs, built a swimming pool, erected a ranch barn, started a restaurant, opened a campground and built bungalows. A putting green and tennis, badminton and tetherball courts soon followed. After passing through the hands of Lloyd and Earl Wilder, brothers from Saskatchewan responsible for the first major expansion, the resort was purchased by Ken Fowler Enterprises in 2007.

Floating the Columbia River from Fairmont Hot Springs is a popular pastime in the summer heat.

ne of Canal Flats’ most awe-inspiring features is that it’s situated at the source of the Columbia River, the fourth largest river system in North America, which flows through southern B.C., Washington and Oregon before emptying into the Pacific Ocean. All visitors are encouraged to stroll along the historically significant Source of the Columbia Greenway interpretive loop trail, a 1.5-kilometre stroll through unique Columbia Wetlands marshland habitat that begins minutes from the village centre. Located halfway between Invermere and Cranbrook at the southern end of Columbia Lake with the Kootenay River to the south, the quiet community of Canal Flats takes its name from the flat strip of land that it sits upon, which is intersected by a historic canal. The surrounding area is part of the Rocky Mountain Trench and the gateway to several stunning provincial parks, including Whiteswan Lake and Thunder Hill.

Supported mainly by the lumber industry, Canal Flats has expanded since its incorporation in 2004, offering affordable living in a friendly, smalltown atmosphere. The village is increasingly attractive to families and seasonal home owners, with the convenience of the Canadian Rockies International Airport just an hour’s drive away.

The village was first named McGillivray’s Portage by the famous explorer and mapmaker David Thompson when he passed through the region in 1808. The remains of a canal built in 1889 to connect the Kootenay River to Columbia Lake reveal the history behind the name Canal Flats, which the local post office officially adopted in 1913. The canal was created by entrepreneur William Adolph Baillie-Grohman to try and lower the level of nearby Kootenay Lake and reclaim the 48,000 acres of sediment-rich soil left behind. The secondary purpose was to open a north-south passageway for canal steamboats to journey from Montana to Golden. But the risk of flooding the Columbia River curtailed Baillie-Grohm-

ne hour south of Fairmont Hot Springs and just 20 minutes north of Cranbrook lies an amazing piece of Canadian history awaiting your discovery. Step back into the 1890s and experience the vibrantly restored pioneer boomtown of Fort Steele Heritage Town.

library that is a tremendous resource to not only Fort Steele staff and volunteers, but to students and historians in Canada and abroad. While the site actively interprets the years 1890 to 1905, you will also find displays portraying the Kootenay Gold Rush of the 1860s along the Wild Horse Creek, and the period of unrest between the Ktunaxa Nation and EuroCanadian settlers in 1887-1888 that brought Superintendent Samuel Steele and “D” Division of the North West Mounted Police to the district. Where space permits, consideration is also given to the history of the East Kootenay region following the decline of Fort Steele.

the Valley

Ice climbing at Haffner Creek, Kootenay National Park.

Beaches During the popular summer months, there are a number of sandy spots for the public to kick back on a beach towel and soak in some rays with the warm waters of Lake Windermere just a few steps away. In Invermere, check out James Chabot Provincial Park, or Kinsmen Beach with its urban amenities. Windermere Beach on the east side of the lake is also a hot spot.

Climbing: Rock & Ice

From north to south, the Columbia Valley is an adventure playground for all ages all year long. The scope of things to do can be overwhelming at first, especially if you’re a first-time visitor. Here is a quick A-Z list to give you some ideas on how to spend your “valley time.”

The 180-kilometre stretch of the Columbia River Wetlands makes the valley a birdwatcher’s paradise. Considered one of the longest intact wetlands in North America, it is home to over 265 species of birds. Don’t miss the annual Wings Over the Rockies bird festival held each May, which offers a full week of more than 70 field trips, presentations and workshops.

The Columbia Valley offers plenty of exciting places to climb, whether it’s on granite or dolomite in the summer or waterfall ice in the winter. Locals love the sport climbing at Jubilee Mountain in Spillimacheen and at various locations along Toby Creek near Panorama Mountain Village, while the internationally acclaimed Bugaboos — recognized in the definitive “Fifty Classic Climbs of North America” book as a granite paradise not to be missed draws climbers from around the world. During the winter, the valley’s cold temperatures and steep walls are attracting  ice climbers to the 140-metre, south-facing Gibraltar Wall in Canal Flats, the beginner-friendly Cedared Creek seeps near Spillimacheen and the challenging vertical lines found on the Stanley headwall in Kootenay National Park. 

Camping

Curling

See RV Parks and Camping on page 66-67.

Curling is a popular community sport in the valley with the Invermere Curling Club in downtown Invermere as its hub. Lively recreational league games run all winter long with the annual Bonspiel on the Lake as the season’s highlight. The “Lakespiel”, as it’s come to be affectionately known, takes place every January as part of the Invermere Snowflake Festival and participating teams come from across Western Canada as well as Washington and Montana states to attend.

Bird Watching

Canoeing & Kayaking There is no better place to test out your paddling skills. Explore any of the valley’s spectacular lakes, rivers and wetlands by kayak or canoe. Rentals and tours are available in Radium, Invermere, Fairmont, Kimberley and Cranbrook.

Farmers’ Markets

Flying

The number of local artisans and food producers has grown to the point where bustling farmers’ markets can be found up and down the valley all summer long. Golden hosts markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays, the Radium Hot Springs’ Market on Main happens every Friday and select Saturdays, the Invermere and Cranbrook markets are each Saturday and the markets in Edgewater and Fairmont Hot Springs are on Sundays. Call the local Visitor Information Centres for locations and times.

If you like the idea of exploring as the crow flies, then head to the Invermere Airport, where you can get airborne with the Invermere Soaring Centre, Bavin Air or Airspace Helicopters. Scenic flights over mountains and glaciers can be had in Cessnas, ultralights, helicopters or gliders. The best soaring season is May to September — world records have flown from here.

Festivals The Columbia Valley is becoming renowned for its vibrant music and community festivals held through the year. See pages 24-25 and 52-53.

Fishing The Columbia Valley’s pristine lakes, rivers and stream make for incredible fishing. From Golden to Invermere to Kimberley, a wide range of species can be caught, from Rainbow, Cutthroat and Dolly Varden trout to Bass, Kokanee and Lingcod. Whether shore, boat, fly or ice fishing strikes your fancy, you won’t be disappointed. Rental boats, ice huts, rods and tackle are available or, better yet, treat yourself to a guided fishing charter, tour or expedition.

Cutthroat trout are bountiful in the valley.

Galleries The natural beauty of the Columbia Valley is an inspiration to countless artists in the region, whose unique work can be found in the wonderful array of studios and galleries in Invermere and its surrounding communities including Panorama Mountain Village, Fairmont Hot Springs and Radium Hot Springs, and as far as Golden to the north, and Kimberley and Cranbrook to the south. In addition to public art demonstrations held throughout the year, art lessons are offered to kids and adults. Contact the Columbia Valley Arts Council to find out more.

Geocaching Geocaching is a fantastic, eco-friendly way to explore the valley’s historical locations, geological features and local tourist attractions. Armed with a Global Positioning System, feed in co-ordinates and use them to seek out hidden containers — or geocaches — on trails or loops that make nice and easy day-trips, remove one item and leave one behind for future treasure hunters. Visit www.bcrockiestreasuretrails.com.

Golfing

The Columbia Valley is a mecca for golfers, with 16 courses within 75 minutes of Invermere, from mini-golf to 18-hole games. See pages 59-63 for more information.

Guides & Outfitters Explore hidden backcountry corners from north to south with locals who know all the best spots. A variety of outfitters offer professionally guided big game hunts, family oriented horseback trail rides, fishing and hiking trips, wildlife viewing and eco-tours.

Hockey & Ice Skating

The valley has some of the world’s best sites for hang gliding and paragliding, with excellent thermal conditions and incredible cross-country opportunities. Check out the famous Mount Seven flying site in Golden (best suited to advanced pilots), Mount Swansea in Invermere, or the Panorama Flying Site. All offer stunning scenery and spectacular thrills. And be sure to check out Invermere’s annual Lakeside Event where pilots take off from Mt. Swansea and land in water targets in Lake Windermere below.

Hiking & Heli-Hiking Spectacular scenery can by accessed via endless trails winding through the valley’s landscape, which range from short strolls to strenuous multi-day treks. A short, easy hike to the top of the Dutch Creek Hoodoos (south of Fairmont Hot Springs) provides magnificent views of the Rocky Mountains, Columbia Lake and fast-flowing Dutch Creek at the foot of the cliff. Interpretive trails can be found in Kootenay National Park, such as the history-rich Paint Pots Trail (86 kilometres north of Radium), which is wheelchair accessible — park trail guides can be picked up at the West Gate just outside Radium. Those seeking a challenge should try the Pedley Pass Trail near Windermere (3-hour round trip), or the Lower Bugaboo Falls in Bugaboo Provincial Park (1-hour round trip). For a more strenuous day trip, the Lake of the Hanging Glacier offers stunning landscape as does the Jumbo Pass Trail. For overnight trips, the Rockwall Trail in Kootenay National Park is one of the most beautiful multi-day backcountry hikes in the Canadian Rockies. If you’re the type of person who needs to get somewhere fast to relax, check out the various Heli-hiking outfits. They’ll get you to the out-of-reach places quickly, drop you off and pick you up.

Indoor arenas can be found in Golden, Invermere, Canal Flats (newly renovated after receiving an $800,000 provincial grant), Kimberley and Cranbrook for recreational use as well as cheering on the local hockey teams. For those who prefer to play outdoors during the winter months, Edgewater and Radium have established outdoor skating rinks, while the District of Invermere grooms outdoor ice areas for public use at Kinsmen Beach and hosts the annual BC Pond Hockey Championships on Lake Windermere each February. For information on the Lake Windermere Whiteway, the valley’s supreme outdoor natural ice skating surface, see page 69.

Horseback Riding Don’t miss out on a memorable way to experience the Columbia Valley’s scenery and wildlife. By horseback, novice to expert riders can explore beautiful backcountry trails from Golden to Cranbrook at a different pace. Sports and leisure riding stables pepper the valley’s communities and rides range from scenic onehour trips to multi-day camping treks.

Hot Springs If there was one thing tourism in the valley was based on, it would be the hot springs. Historically important in so many ways, the hot springs of Radium and Fairmont — two of Canada’s biggest hot springs pools — attract thousands upon thousands visitors each year. For those willing to drive to Whiteswan Lake Provincial Park south of Canal Flats, the wildness of the undeveloped Lussier Hot Springs offers a natural setting alongside the Lussier River.

Panoramic views are waiting for hikers who climb the towering peak of Mount Nelson, west of Invermere.

Fat bikes allow the valley’s die-hard mountain bikers to spin their wheels all year long.

Mountain Biking The valley is a mountain biker’s paradise with trail networks through some of the world’s most spectacular scenery. Epic cross country trails can be found in every community, notably the Moonraker trails in Golden, the Lake Lillian trails in Invermere, and Kimberley’s Lois Creek trails. Downhill diehards will love the technical steeps at Golden’s Mount 7 and Invermere’s Mount Swansea — and the liftaccessed mountain biking at the Kicking Horse, Panorama and Kimberley ski resorts. For a fun workout, head to Radium’s pump track.

Two of the most beautiful recreational lakes in southeastern British Columbia can be found in the Columbia Valley. To the south between Canal Flats and Fairmont Hot Springs lies Columbia Lake, the headwaters of the Columbia River (the largest river in the Pacific Northwest). Its waters flow through Fairmont before widening to create Lake Windermere, where public boat access is available at the north end in Invermere. The valley is also home to countless mountain lakes, perfect for fishing, boating and swimming. It’s just a matter of choosing which one to relax at.

Parks: Provincial & National

Mountaineering For those seeking to climb mountains, there are terrific peaks throughout the Rockies and Purcells to choose from. Experienced mountaineers have a whole host of worldclass alpine climbs in this region known for its range of choices. Popular spots include Glacier National Park to the north of Golden, known as the birthplace of mountaineering in North America, the jagged peaks of Jumbo Valley, Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park, home to the highest peak in the Southern Continental Ranges of the Canadian Rockies, and Bugaboo Provincial Park near Brisco, featuring some of the best mountaineering in BC. The park encompasses extensive ice fields, the largest glaciers in the Purcells, and spectacular granite spires exceeding 3,000 metres in elevation.

Museums Discover what shaped valley history by visiting the following museums: the Golden and District Museum, the Windermere Valley Museum in Invermere, Kimberley’s Heritage Museum and Underground Mining Railway and, in Cranbrook, the Canadian Museum of Rail Travel, the Cranbrook Art Museum, and the nearby historic site of Fort Steele Heritage Town.

British Columbia has the largest protected provincial park system in Canada. In the Columbia Valley, there are 15 provincial parks, including Golden Ears in Golden, Dry Gulch and James Chabot just outside Invermere, Whiteswan Lake south of Canal Flats and Top of the World northeast of Kimberley and Cranbrook. Visitors can also explore any number of nearby National Parks, including Kootenay, Yoho, and Glacier in B.C., and Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper in Alberta.

Picnicking A multitude of picnic facilities are scattered throughout the valley, offering a fantastic way to relax while taking in the majestic scenery. Picnic/day use areas are available in most of the provincial parks on a first-come, first-served basis, and there are 11 maintained picnic areas in Kootenay National Park, many with fire rings, firewood and kitchen shelters. Picnic tables, water and wheelchair accessible toilet facilities are available at all sites.

Powered Watersports With so many lakes in the region, the potential for motorized fun on the water is endless, from

Snowboarders at Panorama Mountain Village take in the scenery before gliding into the clouds on the run View of 1000 Peaks.

Quad Biking If hopping on an ATV and exploring endless kilometres of winding forest service roads and old logging roads is your idea of a good time, then you have come to the right place. The Steamboat Mountain trail near Brisco is a technical ride on forestry roads. In a wilderness setting west of Radium you’ll find Frances Creek/ Lead Queen Mine, with plenty of challenging terrain. The Paradise Mine road, 18 kilometres southwest of Invermere just off Toby Creek Road, is a popular scenic trip for off-roaders keen to explore the remnants of an early 1900s silver mine. Anyone riding in the area needs a valid licence and third-party liability insurance. If you don’t have your own wheels, rent or take a guided tour.

Rafting & Floating Whitewater rafting is a big tourist draw in the valley, with adventurous trips offered on the Columbia, Kootenay and Kicking Horse rivers, as well as Toby Creek, which carves through steep canyons in the Purcells before joining the Columbia. Gentler scenic floats are also available. Wind your way through the internationally recognized Columbia Valley Wetlands or down the peaceful St. Mary’s and Blaeberry rivers.

Skateboarding Some of Canada’s best plaza, bowl, and obstacle terrain lies in the heart of the Columbia Valley! Invermere’s Mount Nelson Skatepark and the Golden Freeride Park were both built by Canada’s award-winning municipal skatepark design and construction team, Newline Skateparks, and feature expansive plazas, large bowls, obstacles and more. The Kimberley Skate and Mountain Bike Skills Park showcases a wide variety of ramps, verts and rails for all levels. The Viking Youth Skatepark next to the Rec-Plex in Cranbrook is also rideable for all ages. The facilities are open for skateboarding, rollerblading, BMXing and mountain biking.

Skiing & Snowboarding: Cross-Country, Downhill & Touring A river valley flanked by two rugged mountain ranges is the perfect recipe for fantastic skiing and snowboarding during the winter months. Nordic skiers will find well-groomed trails scattered through the valley for both skate and classic cross country disciplines. For an in-depth look at the valley’s most unique trail system, the Lake Windermere Whiteway, see page 69. Nipika Mountain Resort, accessible via Kootenay National Park, has 50 kilometres of fantastic trails for all levels. At the base of Kicking Horse Resort, Dawn Mountain Nordic Centre offers 33 kilometres of groomed tracks. Up near Edgewater is the 16-kilometre Baptiste Lake Trail System, the Panorama Nordic Centre has more than 20 kilometres of trails with a warming hut, and the Kimberley Nordic Club trail network even offers night skiing. For downhill skiers, there are four family-friendly world class resorts to choose from: Kicking Horse near Golden, Panorama Mountain Village near Invermere, the Fairmont Hot Springs Ski Area and Kimberley Alpine Resort. For those passionate about ski touring, the beautiful valley backcountry is awe-inspiring with its frosted peaks, deep powder snow and peaceful solitude. In the area near Golden there are more than 20 backcountry lodges to choose from. In the central valley, the Columbia Valley Hut Society maintains five backcountry cabins. Towards the valley’s southern end there are backcountry cabins less than an hour west of Canal Flats and a single hut to the northwest of Kimberley.

The Columbia Valley is making a name for itself in the world of competitive sports. Any number of events across a broad range of disciplines can be found here. Whether it’s running straight up and down a mountain in the Swansea Scramble, paragliding and hang gliding into Lake Windermere in the Lakeside Event, or testing your metal in the Heart of the Rockies Triathlon — featured on TSN in 2012 — if you want to push yourself to the max, or simply take in the lovely landscapes these events offer, it’s all here waiting for you. See Around the Valley Events on page 51 for more information.

Snowshoeing

The stand up paddleboard craze has definitely caught on in the valley. On any number of calm lakes or lazy rivers, you’ll find water lovin’ folk soaking in the sun as they cruise along at a comfortable pace, taking in the passing scenery while getting a great workout standing up! Paddleboards are available for rent and for purchase, and if you’re not confident heading out on your own, join a guided tour to learn the basics under the watchful eye of an expert.

Ski resorts make good starting point for snowshoers with Panorama Mountain Village, Kicking Horse Mountain Village and Kimberley Alpine Resort offering guided treks for all ability levels. The ski hill at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort is another option with beautiful scenery. Other good trips are the Johnson Trails near Lake Lillian, the Greenways Trail system at Dry Gulch, the Bird Sanctuary just north of Wilmer, and the marked trails in Kootenay National Park.

Increasingly popular with brides and grooms who want to tie the knot away from the urban hustle and bustle, the valley offers numerous locations and services guaranteed to help you pull off the big day in the most stress-free way possible. In Golden, the Eagle’s Eye Restaurant at the top of Kicking Horse mountain resort has become a hot spot for nuptials with stunning views over the Canadian Rockies, Purcell and Selkirk mountains. In town, the newly restored Civic Centre is also a favourite because of its proximity to the Kicking Horse River, which presents fantastic photo opportunities, as does the nearby Kicking Horse Pedestrian Bridge.

Whiteway

hether your passion is cross country skiing, ice skating, ice fishing, or just the plain thrill of walking and driving across a frozen lake, Lake Windermere delivers during the coldest months of the year, when the water freezes over and a smooth, icy surface forms from the north end to the south. And since 2008, the valley’s local Toby Creek Nordic Ski Club has been funding and maintaining a groomed ice skating and cross country ski track on the frozen lake, that connects the communities of Invermere, Windermere and beyond. Known as the Lake Windermere Whiteway, it has become synonymous with winter outdoor recreation in the valley and a welcomed frosty treat for visitors and residents alike. The Whiteway accommodates both classic and skate cross country skiing techniques, as well as recreational ice skating, in a mountainous setting that’s second to none. Originally

a 17-kilometre trail, the Whiteway grew to 31 kilometres and six metres wide (for ice skaters) for the 2013/2014 winter season. The impressive scale of the Whiteway has attracted international attention and is the focus of a new tourism video for the region. In 2012, Discovery Channel’s Mark Miller did a segment on the impressive attraction in his weekly science show the “Daily Planet.” The Nordic Club asks that users either pay an individual day-use fee of $5, or purchase a membership to the club. Memberships and donations can be completed online, by mail or dropped in the secure donation boxes at information kiosks found on the Whiteway. The funds are used to provide ongoing maintenance of the track throughout the winter months. Club members are also covered by group insurance through Cross Country BC while using the Whiteway. Visit www.tobycreeknordic.ca for more information.

am pleased with the art we have chosen for the cover of our 2014/2015 MapBook — a vibrant and colourful painting by Angela Morgan,” says publisher Rose-Marie Fagerholm. “The painting symbolizes our Columbia Valley Wetlands, the longest intact wetlands and river system in North America. It is an essential habitat for many species and I like that we can highlight this important ecosystem with the Cover Art Project in our official Visitor Guide and bring people’s attention to its existence and importance. Tens of thousands of visitors will have this guide in their hands.“ The painting that graces the cover of the 2014/2015 Map Book — “A Place for Secret Things” — is a colourful rendition of the wetlands in the Columbia Valley. As in previous years, the Artym Gallery in Invermere has teamed up with the Map Book to sell reproductions of the cover painting to fundraise for a local non-profit organization. The Map Book Cover Project has benefited a different local cause or organization for a full decade now, donating thousands of dollars to deserving recipients. For 2014/2015, the Artym Gallery and the Map Book have chosen a cause that simultaneously highlights the importance of the wetlands and their surrounding landscape, while providing more access and awareness: The Columbia Valley Greenways Trail Alliance (CVGTA). “One of the reasons the Alliance appealed to us is the trails’ variety of uses,” says Connie Artym-Bradatsch, who co-owns the Artym Gallery with her husband, Grey Bradatsch. “They can be used in the winter for snowshoeing or cross country skiing; in the summer, for hiking, biking and running.” Grey adds, “It is really important to us that the cause we support is inclusive. The trail network the Alliance is devel-

70

oping is perfect; it will connect all the different communities in our area, as well as helping foster a closer connection to the unique ecology in the Columbia Valley.” The CVGTA is dedicated to creating and integrating existing trail systems, with the ultimate goal being an extensive trail network that extends from Golden to Canal Flats, almost 200 kilometres along and through the Columbia River wetlands. It will consist of a “spine” of primary trails, with secondary trails scattered throughout. The trails will not only provide access between communities through the ecologically significant greenway corridors, but will also highlight important cultural and historical sites as well. Mark Halwa, the chair of CVGTA, explains: “We are developing a Master Trail Plan of the current hiking, biking, running, etc. trails in the valley, which will be accessible on our website with accurate directions, trail markers, pictures, signage and downloadable maps. This generous Map Book Cover Art Project donation will allow us to include additional trails and extra functionality on the website that will benefit all trail enthusiasts.” For more information on the Columbia Valley Greenways Trail Alliance and the current and proposed trail system, visit their website at www.greenways.ca. The Artym Gallery will produce up to 100 giclées of Angela Morgan’s cover at priced at $320 each. These high quality reproductions each measure 20” x 16” and are printed on paper, dry mounted, varnished and framed. To view the piece online, visit at www.artymgallery.com. To purchase the giclée of “A Place for Secret Things” and support this great cause, drop by the Artym Gallery at 934 – 7th Ave (Main Street) in downtown Invermere or call the gallery at 250-342-7566. ~Deanna Berrington, Artym Gallery

Featured Artist

Angela Morgan

T

he cover painting of the 2014 Map Book, “A Place for Secret Things” by well-loved and renowned painter Angela Morgan, is a celebration of the Columbia Valley’s natural elements that help make it such a great place to spend time. The piece also expresses Angela’s enthusiasm for the area. “I love the streams and rivers and wetlands that occupy our valleys. This painting isn’t a particular place per se, but it is inspired by the wetlands. A magical place, a place that is home to the birds and animals that are unique to our corner of the world,” she said. Angela’s work has been displayed at the Artym Gallery for over a decade, and she remains one of their most popular and recognizable artists. Her annual shows at the Artym are some of the most anticipated art events of the summer, and collections of her work can be found in all corners of the globe. Every single brushstroke that Angela puts to her canvas expresses her passion for life, her humour and her overarching sense of fun. She is most well-known for her renditions of people — old ladies in swimsuits on the beach,

children playing their mysterious games in the snow or sun, or women in party dresses having martinis on the patio. That being said, the current Map Book cover painting is a bit of a departure for Angela. “The symbolism of the boat has featured strongly in my work this year… the anticipation of a journey, embarking on a voyage,” she said, which is quite apt, as Angela’s career continues to expand and her paintings continue to reach new and enthusiastic fans. A vibrant depiction of the natural world we find ourselves surrounded by every day, “A Place for Secret Things” is, according to Angela, “a reflection upon the special qualities of some of those places we have to explore in the valley; a place for contemplation and wonder, a place for listening and learning about the secrets of our world.” “My work is a delight to produce,” she said. “I love colour and movement, and endeavour to create work that makes people reflect upon the joys of everyday life.”
