People Soup in Banff

The last time we were in Banff with the kids we decided to stop in at the Banff Hot Springs (www.hotsprings.ca) .

We used to know of a ‘locals’ only way to get admission into one of the swanky hotels to use their outdoor hot pools but they have since discontinued that (darn it). The kids had never been to the outdoor Banff Hot Springs so we thought it would be fun.

They have a shallow pool for just for kids in the middle of the Hot Springs. Although it was very cool in the winter with snow and ice all over the sides of the pool, the kids thought it was awesome.

Unfortunately, the Hot Springs really drain my energy but they didn’t seem to have the same effect on the kids. I barely had enough strength to carry my daughter through the warm water. It is like being in a big bathtub or as some call it “People Soup”.

A family of four can gain access to the Hot Springs for around $22.50CDN. You can also download a Travel Alberta coupon at http://www.travelalbertalive.com/holidaycard.cfm.
