The Mountains Shall Bring Peace to the People” Radium Hot Springs Welcome Sign (est. 1928)

elcome to “valley time” and the warm side of the Rockies. 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 the majestic wetlands winding along the valley floor. Whatever the reason, it’s magical, and the Columbia Valley beckons with a taste for adventure, wilderness, rural landscapes and tranquility. Elegance? The Columbia Valley has that too, with internationally renowned resorts and hot springs. A trio of brand new facilities — the Columbia

Valley Centre, the Columbia Lake Recreation Centre and the Radium Hot Springs Centre — have opened their doors in the past few years, offering state-of-the-art capabilities for hosting functions, weddings and banquets. Add pristine lakes and rivers, numerous provincial parks, outdoor recreation opportunities yearround, as well as cosmopolitan restaurants, cafes and shops, a vibrant arts and culture scene, music festivals, and some of the province’s best farmers’ markets, and you have a truly outstanding place. Stay a while. You may never want to leave.

Aboriginal Nations

Shuswap Indian Band The Shuswap Indian Band is part of the Secwépemc (Shuswap) Nation, an interior Salish-speaking 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. The Secwépemc and their neighbours the Ktunaxa share mixed lineage and affiliations that continue to this day, however, the Shuswap Indian Band officially withdrew from the Ktunaxa Nation Tribal Council to re-join the Shuswap Nation in 2006.

@ Pioneer photo

The Shuswap Indian Band’s economic development in recent decades includes Eagle Ranch Resort, the Black Forest Heights subdivision, No Frills, Arrowhead Brewing Company, Kicking Horse Coffee, Home Hardware and the rest of the commercial frontage along the north side of Athalmer Road, as well as the Kinbasket Water & Sewer Company Ltd. The Shuswap Band Council (consisting of a chief and two councillors) is the administrative and governing body of the band, which numbers 292 members, a majority of them living off the local reserve. Visit www.shuswapband.net

Akisqnuk First Nation The Akisqnuk First Nation (?akis“nuk (?akis“nuk)) enjoys excellent working relationships with regional partners in both business and government, and is host to ever-broadening business opportunities, such as the beautiful Indian Beach Estates subdivision. The First Nation is proud of its newest facility, the Columbia Lake Recreation Centre. This 22,400 square foot building is one of the premier spots in the valley for indoor sports and recreation. Visit www.akisqnuk.org.

@ Pioneer photo

The Akisqnuk First Nation are members of the Ktunaxa (pronounced too-na-ha) Nation who, for thousands of years, have lived in their traditional territory throughout the Kootenay region, Alberta and south of the border. The Akisqnuk First Nation (?akis“nuk (?akis“nuk)) numbers roughly 300 members and covers more than 8,000 acres, including 14 kilometres of pristine shoreline along Lake Windermere and the Columbia River.

Columbia Valley Métis Association © Monica Fisher

The Columbia Valley Métis Association has 125 adult members, and, including children, represents a local Métis community of roughly 300 people. The association is run by a board of directors, functioning under the Métis Nation of B.C. and other funding streams. The Columbia Valley Métis Association began six years ago. Its mission is to assist its citizens, enhance local Métis culture, and expose the wider Columbia Valley community to Métis culture and history. Prior to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic the association hosted events such as the annual Métis Kitchen Party. During the pandemic it has been helping its members with food hampers, travel assistance, gas subsidies, mortgage assistance and other forms of assistance. Visit www.columbiavalleymetis.ca. Traditional territory acknowledgment: The Columbia Valley Pioneer is located on the traditional territories of the Ktunaxa and Sécwepemc people and their families. We acknowledge the rich cultural histories that encompass the lands where we now live and are grateful to work.

he charming Village of Radium Hot Springs is the first destination visitors encounter when travelling from Kootenay National Park. The village is located just beyond the dramatic Sinclair Canyon on Highway 93S, moments after passing the world-famous Radium Hot Springs.

With its small-town charm, warm residents and unlimited recreational and business opportunities, it’s easy to see why Radium Hot Springs was voted the “Friendliest Town in Canada” by Expedia in 2021.

The Radium Hot Springs Visitor Centre, a wealth of both local knowledge and visitor resources operates year round. Parks Canada team members also occupy the building for six months of the year. The centre’s popular wildlife exhibit plays an important role in this experience. A part-time herd of Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, the village’s unofficial mascots, also call Radium home. These majestic animals are beloved by visitors and locals alike, who have grown accustomed to their quiet presence as they amble through the downtown area during spring, autumn and winter.

Nestled against the majestic Purcell and Rocky Mountains, the village also has stunning views of the Columbia River Wetlands, the largest continuous wetlands in North America. The sweeping vistas of the wetlands, snow-dusted mountains and winding river tributaries make for a spectacular setting.

The countryside stretched for miles around the Village of Radium Hot Springs is a sightseer’s delight. In every direction, visitors can catch a glimpse of local wildlife and stunning vistas.

he Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) Area F, stretching south from Invermere and the crossroads to the southern end of the Columbia Valley, encompasses several smaller communities, nestled in the mountains or along the lakeshores. In the northwestern corner of Area F, Panorama Mountain Resort is tucked into the Purcell Mountain Range just west of Invermere. Panorama offers year-round recreation opportunities: alpine skiing, nordic skiing, snowshoeing and fat biking in the winter, and golf, mountain biking, hiking, whitewater rafting, interpretive trail walks and more in the summer, as well as dining and accommodation options.

the Stolen Church. The building was taken by Rufus Kimpton from the town of Donald, near Golden, for Rufus’ wife Celina. Dismantled and transported to the valley via rail, wagon and riverboat, the church was reassembled in Windermere in 1900. Further south are Dutch Creek, Columere Park and a handful of other communities, all offering a quiet, laid-back lifestyle with access to plenty of outdoor recreation options and scenic vistas, as well as a gas station and par 3 golf course.

The community of Windermere is on the east side of Lake Windermere. The public beach in Windermere is one of the most popular in the valley, with pleasant green spaces, picnic tables, washrooms, a playground and swimming areas. The community also boasts a nearby golf course, several thriving businesses, a community hall, an elementary school, two highway gas stations, a bowling alley, a small grocery store, two farm-fresh produce markets, a smattering of places to eat, and the classic White House pub.

Tilley Park in Canal Flats. © Ryan Watmough

C

anal Flats is best known for three things: as a hockey mecca with an atmospheric rink that in a normal year attracts 5,000 tournament visitors annually; a one and-a-half kilometre trail loop to the source of the Columbia River - North America’s ninth longest river; and as the home of Tilley Park Beach on Columbia Lake. It is working hard to become known for more. The Village has embarked on an ambitious community vision: to be an affordable, family-friendly, village building a new future in housing innovation, quality of place enhancements, tourism expansion, a new village centre, and employment centre expansion at the Columbia Lake Technology Centre. Ambitious projects like the new municipal childcare centre, opening fall 2021, the Shore-to-Shore Pathway which, when completed, will link the Kootenay River to Columbia Lake via a non-motorized walking and biking pathway, public art, and numerous civic beautification projects channel that vision.

It takes a bit of pioneering imagination but picture a village centre featuring work-live buildings, new entrepreneurs and employment opportunities created by the evolution of the village’s industrial lands into the largest employment centre development in the Columbia Valley, and enterprise that features food and beverage-based agriculture, renewable energy, handcraft and woodcraft, and creators inspired by the setting.

Picture lifestyle-priced housing innovation that enables you to buy a home at 25 instead of 35 and fosters your entrepreneurial vision. . . Retire from the city 10 years earlier and leave money in your pocketbook to do what you love. Within five minutes you can boat on Columbia Lake, river raft or fish on the Kootenay River, or hike Mount Sabine. Or within an hour there are 15 golf courses, three mountain ski and summer resorts, a provincial park (which includes Lussier Hot Springs), a national park, and endless trails offering good things for the soul. House resale prices are 50 per cent lower than the Columbia Valley average, 65 per cent lower than the metro Calgary average, and 85 per cent lower than the metro Vancouver average. Residential property taxes and charges on a representative house are among the lowest in B.C. Canal Flats has created a range of housing innovation policy to enable lifestyle living, including home-based business-friendly housing, garden suites, secondary suites, work-live buildings, and mixed-use development. For those seeking “upscale,” the Painted Ridge development on the shore of Columbia Lake has first houses under construction, with lots available for purchase. And don’t miss the Flats Fest music festival in August. For more information, visit www.canalflats.ca.

Around the Valley

Fishing on the Columbia River by Fairmont. © Ryan Watmough

F

rom 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, so here is a quick A-to-Z list to give ideas on how to spend your ‘valley time.’ The valley has plenty of sandy beaches on which to kick back and soak in some rays with warm water just a few steps away. The best include James Chabot Provincial Park and Kinsmen Beach in Invermere, Windermere Beach in Windermere, and Tilley Memorial Park in Canal Flats. The Columbia River Wetlands are a birdwatching paradise, with more than 265 species of birds recorded here. Don’t miss the annual Wings Over the Rockies bird festival held each May. Camping is spectacular, with a wealth of RV parks and campgrounds as well as backcountry rec sites throughout the valley. The valley’s lakes, rivers and wetlands are great for canoeing or kayaking. Top rock climbing spots include Jubilee Mountain in Spillimacheen, Barbour Rock, the Bugaboos. There are local curling clubs and, weather allowing, the annual Bonspiel on the Lake each winter drawing curlers from all over Canada and even further away. The Columbia Valley is becoming renowned for its vibrant music and community festivals held through the year. Check with local visitor centres for dates and locations. Pristine waterways make for incredible fishing, and in the winter the ice fishing is top notch. A wide range of species can be caught, from rainbow, cutthroat and Dolly Varden trout to bass, Kokanee and lingcod. Scenic flights over mountains and glaciers can be had in Cessnas, ultralights, helicopters or gliders. The Columbia Valley is a mecca for golf, with 16 courses, from mini-golf to internationally known 18-hole courses, all situated within minutes of each other.

community, notably the Cross River Canyon Recreation Trails at Nipika Mountain Resort, the Lake Lillian trails in Invermere, and at Fairmont. Downhill diehards will love the technical steeps at Mt. Swansea and the lift-accessed trails at Panorama. The Columbia Valley Cycling Society offers biking trail maps. History buffs can discover what shaped valley history at the Windermere Valley Museum. In the Columbia Valley there are 15 provincial and national parks close by, including Bugaboo west of Brisco, Kootenay National Park right on the eastern doorstep of Radium, Dry Gulch south of Radium, James Chabot in Invermere, Whiteswan Lake southeast of Canal Flats, and Top of the World, Wasa Lake, and Premier Lake a bit further south. Whitewater rafting is a big tourist draw with trips offered on the Columbia, Kootenay and Toby Creek. Gentler scenic floats around Fairmont and between Invermere and Radium are also popular. Invermere’s Mount Nelson Athletic Park is the place for skateboarding, featuring expansive plazas, large bowls, obstacles and more. A river valley flanked by two rug-

ged mountain ranges is the perfect recipe for fantastic skiing in winter months. Nordic skiers will find groomed trails scattered through the valley for both skate and classic cross-country disciplines, including the Lake Windermere Whiteway, the Lake Lillian Whiteway, Nipika Mountain Resort’s 50 kilometres of groomed trails, and the Panorama Nordic Centre. For downhill skiers, there are two family-friendly options to choose from: Panorama and the Fairmont Hot Springs Ski Area. For those passionate about ski touring the Columbia Valley Hut Society maintains five backcountry cabins. The Columbia Valley is a mecca for snowmobiling with the Forster Creek and Catamount Glacier (open from February 15 to May 31) areas near Radium Hot Springs, the Brewer Creek trail near Invermere and the Doctor Creek route near Canal Flats. SUP (stand-up paddleboarding) is a great way to enjoy the valley’s lakes and rivers, and rentals and tours are available. The valley has two zipline courses, the six-line Mountain Mineral Ziplines at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort and the seven-line Valley Zipline Adventures south of Radium.

T

he abundance of wildlife in the Columbia Valley means many visitors enjoy viewing or learning about local animals while here. The resident Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep herd in Radium is rightly famous, and visitors come from all over the world to catch a glimpse of these majestic ungulates. The local herd, also known as the Radium-Stoddart herd, is often seen around and indeed right in the village. The fall rut, when rams dramatically crash their distinctive spiral-curled horns together at high velocity, is a particularly good time to observe the sheep.

tail feather impressively splayed. In late spring, visitors driving through the parts of Kootenay National Park just east of Radium often are treated to drive-by bear encounters, with both grizzly and black bears relaxing in the grass along the highway, munching dandelions.

The Columbia River wetlands are home to bald eagles, osprey and dozens of other kinds of birds (see bottom of page 27 for more), and if you’re extra lucky, you may just spot coyotes, wolves, cougars or some of the many other valley species. The interactive wildlife exhibit at the Radium Visitor Centre is a fantastic place to learn about local wildlife. Be aware that although some valley wildlife may appear Invermere is home to a herd accustomed to humans, they are of resident mule deer, and in fact very much wild animals. wild mule deer and white-tail deer Exercise caution, particularly are easily seen in rural parts of the during the rut or if the animals’ Columbia Valley.

Columbia Valley Wetlands

T

he Columbia River wetlands, stretching from Canal Flats to north of Golden, are one of North America’s longest relatively intact wetlands, and the largest of their kind in British Columbia. A decade and a half ago they were officially designated as a wetland of international importance under the Ramsar Convention and treaty. The wetlands are the green heart of the Columbia Valley ecosystem, a hotbed of biodiversity, and home to more than 250 species of birds, and well as many more species of fish, mammals, insects, reptiles and amphibians. Aside from commonly spotted bald eagles and ospreys, endangered peregrine falcons use the wetlands as habitat. The wetlands are also an important stop-over point for migrating birds on both the Pacific and Mississippi (Central) Flyways. During spring migration, there have been counts of more than 10,000 swans, geese and ducks. In the fall migration there have been counts of more than 15,000 ducks. One single-day count in the fall recorded more than 1,200 tundra swans. Other endangered species in the

wetlands include the B.C. northern leopard frog, bull trout and badgers. Bird enthusiasts, wetlands aficionados, and nature lovers wanting to learn more about the wetlands will want to time their visit to coincide with the annual Wings Over the Rockies Nature Festival held each spring in the Columbia Valley. This outstanding weeklong celebration offers a dizzying array of nature-based and nature-themed events, outings, educational experiences and more, and draws visitors from around the globe. The 25th edition of the festival is set to run May 9 to 15 in 2022. Outside of the festival, there are plenty of options to take in the splendour of the wetlands, with short walks on established trails near the edge of the wetlands in many of the valley’s communities, or the chance to take a relaxing paddle board, canoe or kayak trip down the Columbia. The river offers excellent fishing too. Federal boating restrictions mean motorized boats are limited to 20 horsepower or less on the main channel of the Columbia River.

Farmers Markets

ach summer, the Columbia Valley is home to a number of thriving farmers’ markets, all boasting a diverse array of vendors peddling unique wares. The valley’s farmers’ markets span the gamut from the north end of the valley, in Spillimacheen, to the south, in Canal Flats. They are also conveniently spaced out throughout the week, from Wednesday evening through Sunday afternoon, giving market fans and casual shoppers alike plenty of opportunity to scour all the vendors’ stalls for the valley’s best handcrafted, homemade and locally grown goods, with time leftover to soak up the distinct flavour of each local community.

The bustling downtown Invermere Farmers’ Market is on Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Lakeview parking lot by the Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena, and is the biggest of the valley’s farmers’ markets. Vendors here sell everything under the sun, with farm produce, jewelry, craft makers, artists, pretzels, honey, wildlife photographers, and bakers galore. The Saturday action doesn’t end there, however, as the Canal Flats Market in downtown Canal Flats begins at 12 noon and goes until 4 p.m., with artists, makers, food, homemade jellies, and pickles among the many vendors.

The fun kicks off on Wednesday evenings at the AgriPark Farmers Market near the Invermere crossroads, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Local farmers and food producers feature heavily here, with plenty of fresh vegetables, fruit, locally grown beef and more. On Friday evenings, Radium’s Market on Main is the place to be for local arts, delicious treats, and many other items, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., near the Radium Visitor Centre. There’s often great live music too.

On Sunday mornings the Fairmont Farmers’ Market in Fairmont Hot Springs runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Fairmont Frontage Road, with food, artisanal crafts, textiles, essential oils and much else. For a truly down-home feel, the Flyway Market runs all day in Spillimacheen at the Spilli Station Cafe. Local produce and farm-fresh eggs are on offer along with other products, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Hot Springs

T

he Columbia Valley is renowned for its hot springs. Perfect for soaking away your cares while admiring the valley’s stunning scenery, great for a splash of family fun, and an excellent way to relax and unwind after enjoying one of the valley’s many outdoor activities, the valley’s trio of major hot springs are ideal morning, afternoon or evening, winter and summer alike. There are three major hot springs in the valley, each offering a different experience than the others: the publicly managed natural Radium Hot Spring pools are the focal point of the village of Radium Hot Springs, and offer a can’t miss Parks Canada experience, tucked into the dramatic Sinclair Canyon. The commercially run Fairmont Hot Springs natural hot pools are the centrepiece of the popular Fairmont Hot Springs Resort, giving guests the chance to immerse themselves in hot, warm and cool pools with breathtaking views-fromabove of the Columbia River and Lake Windermere, columbiavalleymagazines.com

surrounded by soaring mountain peaks. Lussier Hot Springs, in Whiteswan Lake Provincial Park, southeast of Canal Flats, provides soakers with the ultimate wild hot spring option, with several ‘pools’ of varying temperatures fashioned out of river rocks trapping the naturally heated water coming from the springs, all nestled along the shore of the swirling Lussier River, 17 kilometres down a gravel logging road. All of these hot springs have been used for centuries by local Indigenous people, and they hold special cultural and traditional importance to both the Ktunaxa First Nation and the Shuswap Indian Band. Commercial development of both the Radium and Fairmont Hot Springs began nearly a century ago, and visitors have been coming to the valley to swim and soak in them ever since. Whether you prefer your hot pools as Parks Canada amenity, private resort, or rough hewn and wild on the riverside, the Columbia Valley has what you’re looking for. 2021 Columbia Valley Map Book

The park sprawls north and east from here, through the Kootenay and Vermillion River valleys. A variety of top-notch sights are clustered at the northeastern end of Kootenay, including the fabled Rockwall trail (the park’s best multi-day backpacking route), eye-catching Marble Canyon, and the spectacular Stanley Glacier day hike (suitable for hikers of most ages and abilities). Marble Canyon and Stanley Glacier are also spots of considerable natural historical value, with both being Burgess Shale Fossil sites. Parks Canada offers guided hikes with interpreters to the Stanley Glacier fossil site. Those without much time to stop can learn about the park by downloading the Kootenay app (parkscanada. gc.ca/knp-app) and playing it as they drive along Highway 93 South. Other nearby national parks include Yoho (immediately north of Kootenay), Banff (just over the Alberta border) and Glacier (northwest of Golden).

he Columbia Valley is close to several national parks, the closest being the magnificent Kootenay National Park. Kootenay stretches from the edge of the village of Radium Hot Springs all the way to the Alberta boundary, encompassing more than 1,400 square kilometres of wilderness, and is one of four interconnected Rocky Mountain national parks that collectively constitute perhaps the most iconic Parks Canada experience in the country. The history of Kootenay National Park goes back more than a century, with the park established in 1920 as part of efforts to build a road linking the Columbia Valley with Banff. That road is now the scenic Highway 93 South, which gives visitors access to some of Kootenay’s best offerings. At its southwestern end, the park is home to the famous Radium Hot Springs pools, the dramatically narrow Sinclair Canyon, the family-friendly Redstreak campground (with more than 240 sites), and the Kindersley-Sinclair loop (Kootenay’s premier day hike).

ith its inspiring mountain landscape and vibrant waterside communities, it is no wonder the Columbia Valley is host to a dizzying array of galleries, artists and studios, art exhibits, live music and outdoor festivals all year long. The music festival scene kicks on in March at Panorama Mountain Resort and continues on into the summer when music lovers should watch out for the annual standout Steamboat Mountain Music Festival in Edgewater, the idyllic Invermere Music Festival by the lake in August and the lively Flats Fest in Canal Flats. Just be sure you bring your dancing boots. Starting in June, farmers’ markets throughout the valley are a great place to check out local artisans. Visit the Invermere Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings for more than just the amazing bread and fresh local veggies; grab a coffee with friends and visit with local artisans while enjoying the live music. On Friday nights, Music & Market on Main in Radium is another fun way to spend an evening with local music and artists and food. And be sure not miss the valley’s only Sunday market in Fairmont. In the winter months, pick up your local honey or lavender at one of the many Arts and

Crafts fairs up and down the valley or head into your favourite town where you’ll find fun shops and plenty to keep you busy. Open all year long, the Columbia Valley’s art studios and galleries showcase a broad spectrum of talented artists and artisans. Outdoor exhibits, artist demos and arts workshops line sidewalks, while a wander down the main street of Invermere is never complete without saying hello to the community’s iconic sculpture Rusty the Moose. Stop in to check out the latest art show on in the gallery at the Pynelogs Cultural Centre, overlooking the lake down at Kinsmen Beach. Don’t let the ghost stories scare you: the century-old log building is worth a visit for more than just the history buffs. Give yourself time to enjoy a cold drink on the lakeside deck of the cafe, and enjoy the local Kootenay culture! In the winter, the world famous Whiteway and the fabled Bonspiel on the Lake beckon just steps from the Pynelogs front porch. While some of these events might be on hold or modified as the valley works its way through 2021, the valley looks forward with excitement to when arts-and-culture-loving residents and visitors can dance and sing and gather together again.

Top Trails

The Markin-MacPhail Westside Legacy Trail. © Ryan Watmough

P

eople visit the Columbia Valley for its wide variety of exquisite recreational trails. Some people have even been known to make the permanent move to the area for said trails. It happens. Often. While there may be an inherent futility to selecting a ‘top five trails’ in the valley (five doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface), nonetheless, here a half dozen beauties guaranteed not to disappoint.

For backcountry: Lake of the Hanging Glacier Although not necessarily easy to get to, isn’t that partly why you go outside in the first place? You’ll cross rivers with names such as Hellroaring and Horsethief. There is lush vegetation and serenely quiet surroundings. The lake’s backdrop is a near vertical wall of rock with a glacier draped overtop. Icebergs lazily float in the turquoise water. This hike is truly spectacular.

For frontcountry: Mt. Swansea A Columbia Valley classic. Close to town, the entire trail offers beautiful west-facing views of Invermere and indeed the entire Columbia Valley. Swansea is also a favourite for mountain bikers (there are separate designated bike paths) and paragliders launching from the summit. It looses snow cover early in the spring, making it one of the first hikes of the season.

For biking: the Johnson Bike Trail Roughly 10 kilometres of pure joy. Incredible views overlooking Toby Creek Canyon. Ups and downs, lefts and rights. This trail is busy, so be aware of others ahead and behind. And if the Johnson is too busy, there are plenty of other trails in the immediate area to set your wheels on.

For fall colour: Brewer Creek Brewer Creek offers choose-your-own-superlative exposure to the rich colours of fall (the larches practically glow with orange), among other great attributes. There are creeks, lakes, ridgelines, mountain meadows, and more. An easy day hike for the family that connects to other backcountry trails if so desired.

For family fun: Markin-MacPhail Westside Legacy Trail This multi-recreational, human-powered paved trail, the final segment of which is scheduled to be finished in 2021, connects the communities of Invermere and Fairmont along the west side of Lake Windermere. Go for the cascading views of the Columbia Valley, the occasional hill, curvy turns, and above all for a great path to walk, run, bike, roller-skate, you name it, with friends and family of all ages.
