Weekend road trip on Saturday April 29, 2017. Highway 1 west of Calgary to Highway 93 over the continental divide to Radium, British Columbia south on Highway 95 to Fairmont. The trip is about three hours from where I live. Highway 93 needs to be repaved. I will be avoiding that highway with the motorcycle this year. My only reason to go was to enjoy the hot springs. In my opinion the hot springs in Fairmont are better than the hot springs in Radium. The best hot springs I have experienced so far in British Columbia are in Ainsworth. Your mileage may vary.
Of course when I got to Fairmont there was snow in the trees.
