Every ski lift pass includes FREE entry to Canada’s largest natural hot mineral pools.

The mountains also beckon nordic skiers, snowshoers, and snowmobilers, while the frozen surfaces of Lake Windermere and the famous Whiteway are perfect for skating and hockey on one of the biggest ponds you`ll ever play.
