The wilderness 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 Lussier River.
The mineral 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.
