Kootenay hot springs featured in British Columbia Magazine

Once again there’s no shortage of West Kootenay content in the latest issue of British Columbia Magazine.

The latest issue of British Columbia Magazine highlights local hot springs.

Once again there’s no shortage of West Kootenay content in the latest issue of British Columbia Magazine.

The cover story on BC’s best hot springs includes Nakusp, Ainsworth, Halfway, and St. Leon (although oddly, it omits Halcyon).

Authors Glenn and David Woodsworth write of Nakusp: “Of the half-dozen commercial hot springs in British Columbia, this is one of our favourites. Nakusp is a small and friendly spot, with good, uncrowded soaking.”

Elsewhere in the same issue, there’s a full-page photo of the Rossland Winter Carnival in a roundup of winter festivals. (This year’s carnival is Jan. 29 to 31.)

There are also brief shout-outs to the Cody Caves, Whitewater’s bike rentals, the Elephant Mountain Literary Festival, and Nelson’s Otter Books the latter in a roundup of BC’s top independent booksellers.

(This story will appear in the West Kootenay Advertiser)
