RELAXING WEEKEND GETAWAY

I love spending weekends in the mountains, it’s like a mini-vacation and a nice escape from the busy-ness of the city.Typically, Marc and I find ourselves going to Canmore or Banff because it’s so close to home. This time we wanted a change of scenery and to stay a little longer so we opted for a relaxing weekend getaway in Radium Hot Springs.

THE SECRET TO A TOURIST-FREE TRAVEL 

Travel enough and you’ll find that November is a GREAT time to travel! This “shoulder season” month is generally quiet across Canada as we see a transition from summer sports to winter ones, and most people take a break leading up to the Christmas holiday season.

A WILD TIME AT THE ANNUAL HEADBANGER FESTIVAL IN RADIUM HOT SPRINGS 

Typically, when I need to do some headbanging, I scroll through my playlist and settle on some Sabbath. Maybe some Slayer. And I’ve always liked the Scorpions. Ok, to be completely honest, I listen to, on average, about 4.7 heavy metal songs per decade. I actually prefer to watch headbanging. Especially in Radium Hot Springs during the annual fall Headbanger Festival

THREE DAYS IN RADIUM

A few weeks ago Tracey and I took off for a little fall getaway to Radium BC and today I thought I’d share a few of the highlights from our stay. Radium is a small village in the Kootenays in BC and it’s a location that I’m pretty familiar with as we pass through every year when we go to visit Fairmont.

FAMILY-FRIENDLY CONDOS IN BC’S KOOTENAY-ROCKIES REGION

The first time I stayed in the town of Radium Hot Springs, British Columbia, bordering Kootenay National Park and within easy driving distance of Banff and Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies, I encountered several bighorn sheep.These animals with large curved horns frequently come down from the mountains into the town.

A WINTER WEEKEND IN BC’S COLUMBIA VALLEY

Head to BC’s Columbia Valley in the winter for skiing, skating and long soaks in the Radium Hot Springs. It’s only a three hour drive from Calgary – and an unbelievably scenic drive at that. We elected to stay at Bighorn Meadows – a luxury condominium complex in the town of Radium Hot Springs. From the comfort of our room we enjoyed awesome views of the Columbia Valley.

A LUXURIOUS STAY AT BIGHORN MEADOWS, BRITISH COLUMBIA

Opening the door to our 2-bedroom condo at Bighorn Meadows was a true delight. Massive soft-carpeted hallways opened up to a breathtaking living room with plenty of windows letting in the sunshine and breathtaking scenery. The main bathroom was humongous and even had a dual shower for those romantic nights. The main bedroom also had it’s own shower and jacuzzi tub and the kitchen had everything you’d ever need.
