Off-season is ON-SEASON when it comes to enjoying the clear, clean H2O of the Kootenays. Nearby we have white water that ranges from "6-pack and a stolen inner tube" to fully-guided raft trips to solo kayaking in the Columbia. You can dust off that SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) and get it wet in one of our mountain lakes or wet a line looking for Walter. Nearby Trail boasts an aquatic center and a splash 'n' spray Gyro Park for kiddos down by the river. With our small population and high environmental standards, refreshing swimming, boating, and floating options abound and you won't have to worry about your relaxing paddle turning into Bumper Boats.
Don't forget your PFD or SPF. (Because Canadian sunburns hurt, too.)
