Sometimes a tagline says it all. In a hurried world, in Radium there is pause – in a golf round, on a hiking path, or wildlife watching - to reflect on how big life feels for feeling so small within it. In moments of friendly conversation, a gaze to the mountain peaks, or a breath of fresh air, we find new energy to further our causes…to feel well.
Walk Your Socks Off
Keep it easy and interpretive with a 2.5km loop walk in the community via the Sinclair Creek Pathway. http://www.radiumhotsprings.ca/recreation/sinclair-trail
The 55.6 km Rockwall trail located in Kootenay National Park leads one under 30 km of an almost unbroken wall of limestone cliffs towering 900m (2950 feet) above their base in places. In addition to the obviously majestic alpine scenery this massive limestone wall provides, the trail is also punctuated with hanging glaciers, stunning wildflower meadows, larch forests, one of the highest waterfalls in the Canadian Rockies, and three high alpine passes. When British backpacker Chris Townsend did his 1988 trek from the Canada/U.S. border north along the entire length of the Canadian Rockies, he described the Rockwall as the best trail he had walked in the mountain parks. http://www.summitpost.org/the-rockwall-trail/761989
Get Down With It
“I have been travelling to Panorama annually from the UK for 20 years. Great ski hill catering to all levels of ability. Skiing in the afternoons is like having your own ski hill with terrain to suit your mood.”
TripAdvisor Review, 2013
Panorama Mountain Village (www.panoramaresort.com) is a 40 minute car hop, skip and jump. Fairmont (http://www.fairmonthotsprings.com/activities/ski/), Kicking Horse (http://kickinghorseresort.com/), and Lake Louise (www.skilouise.com/) resorts are within an hour’s drive. Use Radium as a hotel hub from which to taste from the ski hill buffet….
“The Springs course at Radium is one of my favourite places to play. The course is picturesque….from forced carries over ravines to narrow landing areas, to sloping fairways and fast greens with subtle breaks. Then there’s the scenery….wow!”
TripAdvisor Review, 2014
Springs Course, Radium Resort – #57 public course in Canada (SCOREGolf - www.columbiavalleygolftrail.com/news/best-in-the-west/)
The Springs 18 and the Resort 18 that constitute Radium Resort (www.radiumresort.com) are undergoing transformational enhancement. Multi-year renovations, started in Fall, 2014, are witnessing redone first, ninth and eighteenth holes on the Springs Course in addition to tee box refurbishment. The Resort Course will see a new green on the first hole, reintroduction of the elevated tees on the second hole, re-contouring of the 13th fairway, and the entire front nine of the course rerouted to provide golfers with signature views of the area and enhanced playability.
There are 15 golf courses located within a 45 minute drive. Use Radium as a hub to piece together a guy’s 36 hole a day adrenalin-rush trip, or a bonding trip with your partner.
