Following the dramatic mudslide that disrupted the entire village of Fairmont, B.C., some weeks ago, Fairmont Hot Springs Resort has reopened.
“We were very fortunate that most of the debris flow was restricted to Fairmont Creek,” says Marke Dickson, director of sales and marketing, Fairmont Hot Springs. “The Lodge, the pools, the RV park and two out of three golf courses were largely unaffected, but [the mudslide] did bury the source of our hot springs and wipe out the road to the RV park.”
The mudslide forced the resort to close for two weeks while debris was removed from the natural hot spring boxes, located up the Fairmont Creek, so that the hot water could be funneled back into the pools.
Geotechnical experts have flown the site and the creek’s catchment and indicated that there is little risk of further debris flow or landslides.
“We are now working hard to get out our message: Fairmont Hot Springs is back and doing what is does best – providing visitors with a fantastic B.C. Rockies experience,” says Dickson.
