Spring in Invermere and Panorama

Springtime in Invermere and Panorama Mountain Resort reigns as one of the most incredible times of the year to visit the Kootenays. When you venture to Invermere during this season, you are immersed in the snow-capped Purcell and Rocky Mountain basin of the Columbia Valley, canopied by bluebird days and cool breezes, making for the perfect conditions to shake off the winter chill and welcome a fresh restart. 

Springtime in Invermere means some of your favourite outdoor activities are coming out of hibernation, allowing you to enjoy golf, skiing, biking, hiking and patio touring. Spring is the season where you can do it all in Invermere and Panorama, BC.

Stay in Beautiful Spaces

Stay in the heart of downtown, near the water for some lakefront access or just outside the town of Invermere, away from the hustle and bustle. If you travel with pets or your littles or are looking for a place to house a larger group, there are many beautiful and affordable places to stay in and around Invermere, BC. 

Here are a few beautiful places to stay when planning your visit. 

Experience The Lake Life

As Lake Windermere begins to thaw, we can swap out hockey sticks and skates for paddles, canoes, or kayaks and traverse the stunning calm waters. Here, you can spot wildlife and enjoy birdwatching. 

If you want a more private paddle experience, head to Lake Lillian on your way to Panorama Mountain Resort. A forest encompasses Lake Lillian, leaving it protected from windy days. It is much smaller in size in comparison to the vast Lake Windermere. Both lakes offer a gorgeous setting and tranquil waters to paddle on for a sunny day well spent.
