A new favourite place in Banff

The Hot Pools at Hidden Ridge

Friends who still ski regularly have told us there’s nothing better than a soak in a hot pool after a cold day on the slopes… But I’m here to say that a soak in a hot pool about 30 years after your last cold day on the slopes is much better, especially if it’s first thing in the morning, before all those sporty Boomers arrive.

This was painted from a photo taken at about 9 am on a day when the temperature was -30 C and the pools were still in the shadow of Rundle Mountain. Isn't it just perfect!
