Lussier Hot Springs are located near the western boundary of Whiteswan
Lake Provincial Park. Whiteswan forestry Road climbs steadily from
Hwy 93/95, entering Lussier Gorge, where a maintained walking trail
leads down to a set of four delightful rock pools alongside the
water enters the first pool at a maximum temperature of 43°C (110°F),
before gravity feeding down to the lower pools. The bottom pool
alongside the Lussier river offers the coolest water, at about 34°C
(94°F) in summer. The rock pools can accommodate several people
at a time. They are popular during summer and tend to be crowded
on weekends, except early in the morning. Clear your mind by bounding
out of the higher pool into the frigid creek water!
A change room/toilet
is located at the parking lot. Alcohol, dogs, and garbage are not
permitted at the springs, and bathers must wear bathing suits. Lussier
Hot Springs are non-commercial, and regular patrols are made by
Provincial Park Rangers. Visitors are asked to please help keep
this wildland hot springs clean. The park is open year round unless
inaccessible due to weather conditions, especially during the off-season.
The Lussier Hot Springs are located within the Kootenay Ranges of
the Rocky Mountains in the East Kootenays. The hotsprings are situated
near the entrance to Whiteswan Lake Provincial
Park, at kilometre 17.5 on the Whiteswan Forestry Road, and are
reached by a short 5-minute hike down to the Lussier River.
