Activities to do

Office life, small spaces, traffic, noise pollutions, commuting and hectic schedules all conspire to turn ordinary human beings into stressed out, time-stared, nervous wrecks.  Fortunately there is another way!

The Columbia Valley, with it’s natural mineral hot springs, weather, lakes, beaches, ski hills, scenery, golf courses and peaceful ambiance, represents a no-side effects cure for what ails city dwellers.  It provides unhurried asylum for the stressed, the over worked, and the anxious – all in one valley.  

Recharge your depleted batteries….Save your tortured souls.

We are the peaceful garden that is humanity’s birthright.
