Kaslo & Area Guide 2013 7
Where can you fnd a charming and energetic town that has
the ambiance of the early 1900s but also the modern conven-
iences of the 21st century? Kaslo, located on Kootenay Lake at
the delta of the Kaslo River, is that place. Truly a village in the
old sense, with a population of just over 1,000, Kaslo has beauti-
ful tree-lined avenues and heritage houses at every turn. It is the
quintessential small town of everyones imagination.
Originally called Kanes Landing, Kaslo was founded in 1893 and
was the regions frst incorporated city. It soon became known as
the commercial centre of the gold, silver and lead mining indus-
tries. Its peaceful cove, one of only a few such natural harbours
along the 97 mile long lake, bustled with activity. Ore barges,
rowboats, private launches and steamships all jostled for a place
alongside the busy wharf.
Today, the village is as pretty as a postcard with an abundance
of Victorian architecture that recalls the sunshine days of the
British empire. At the annual May Days festival, people gather,
as they have since Kaslo was incorporated, to celebrate Queen
Victorias birthday and watch the May Pole dance. In August, the
village becomes the centre of the best jazz festival around, and
the enchanting sound of the music flters through the summer
days from its genesis in the Kaslo Bay.
For summer visitors there are many hiking and biking trails,
great camping and beaches for swimming. Kaslo also has one of
the most scenic golf courses in the area; one which you can get
to know and love as if it were your own private course. Koote-
nay Lake is famous for the giant Gerrard rainbow trout (some
weighing as much as 32 lbs) which are truly a fshermans dream.
Kaslo has ofen been called Rainbow Country, both because of
the trout and because of the rainbows, conjured from the vast
lake and mountains, that frequently trace double arcs in the sky
during the spring and summer months. In winter, Kaslo is your
gateway to alpine skiing, cat-skiing, cross-country skiing, skating
snowshoeing and snowmobiling.
A stroll down Front Street will bring you to the majestic
SS Moyie, one of the last great sternwheelers. Just seeing her in-
stills visions of what her glory days on Kootenay Lake must have
been like. Te Langham, another heritage site, provides a venue
for local artists and theatre groups as well as presenting a view of
Japanese-Canadian internment during the Second World War.
Te village has undergone dramatic changes since the boom days
of the 1890s. Where there were once 27 saloons full of boisterous
prospectors, there is now a myriad of activities for everybody to
enjoy. A visit to Kaslo will leave you with a lifetime of memories
and nostalgic conversations, and no matter how long you stay,
youll wish it had been longer!

Kaslo was originally called Kanes Landing. In 1889 and 1890
G.O. Buchanan and brothers George and David Kane came to
the area to stake timber claims. When mining activity was re-
ported in the surrounding area, the Kane brothers subdivided
their lease into town lots.
Within only a few short years, Kaslo became known as the
commercial centre of the gold, silver and lead mining indus-
tries during the boom of the late 1800s. Te towns peaceful
cove, one of only a few such natural harbours along the 97
mile long lake, bustled with activity. Ore barges, rowboats and
steamships jostled for a place alongside the busy wharf. Te
population quickly grew to 3000 people, most of them hoping
to make their fortunes in the newly discovered mines.
Disaster struck in 1894 as fre, food and gale force winds came
in succession. In February, half of the towns commercial dis-
trict was destroyed, as well as 60-70 houses and the town jail.
By 1896, Kaslo had turned her fortunes around with the com-
pletion of the K&S Railway, a public telephone system, and
electric and waterworks plants. By 1897 Kaslo had all the servi-
ces of a progressive mining supply centre: a cigar factory, brew-
ery, dry goods stores, several saloons, hotels and brothels and a
newspaper Te Kootenaian.
Over the next 50 years, metal prices fell and mining costs rose,
resulting in a decline in mining activity and in the viability of
the town. For a while fruit ranching was a thriving industry
until the Little Cherry disease destroyed the marketability of
the fruit. But the villagers never gave up.
Present day Kaslo has an economy that is varied enough to
withstand change. Lifestyle, tourism, small and home-based
businesses are now the foundation of Kaslos prosperity.
Kaslovians are justifably proud of the impressive array of ser-
vices, institutions and support facilities available, to say noth-
ing of the numerous clubs and organizations that help ensure
life in Kaslo is vibrant and progressive.
The SS Moyie
Te SS Moyie is one of Kaslos gems. She holds within her hull
the history of an entire region and the stories of its settlement. It
has been over fty years since the SS Moyie, the oldest intact pas-
senger sternwheeler in the world, made her last sailing on Kootenay
Lake. Today the ship is dry-docked and open to the public. Spend a
morning touring its interior and see elegant Victorian dcor, historic
artifacts, and realistic displays.
For nearly sixty years, sternwheelers provided a transportation life-
line to the many isolated communities on Kootenay Lake. The SS
Moyie and her sister ships literally opened the Kootenay region to
miners, businesses, farmers and pioneer families. When she was
launched on October 22, 1898, there were no roads, no trains, and
of course no air travel into these hidden mountain valleys. The ships
were the only means of mass transportation, freight and mail ser-
vice. And so they came the rich, the poor, prospectors and settlers
sailing up the pristine waterways on ships that were themselves
works of art. The sternwheelers were the bearers of our destiny.
When she was nally dry docked in 1957 the Village of Kaslo pur-
chased the Moyie from the CPR for the grand sum of $1. Breath-
ing life into her history has involved thousands of hours of labour,
research and the skills of a generation of workers. Storyboards at
street level describe the scope and scale of the renovations that are
still ongoing today.
Now a designated National Historic Site and BC Landmark, the
sternwheeler is open daily for guided or self-guided tours from Moth-
ers Day through to Thanksgiving weekend. The Moyie is located at
324 Front Street. For more information see www.klhs.bc.ca or phone/
fax 250-353-2525, or write a letter to Box 537, Kaslo, BC V0G 1M0.

The Langham
Te Langham Hotel was built in 1896 just as mining activity in the
hills around Kaslo began to wane. During the silver boom, hotels in
Kaslo were so busy that beds were rented in three shifs a day, with
each person getting only the allotted eight or less hours to sleep
lying down. Te bars served liquor all day and all night, ladies of
the evening entertained the miners, and a boisterous atmosphere
was the order of the day. Te Langham had a bar which ran the
entire length of the building. Beer for the bar was brewed on site
and was one of the frst industries of Kaslo.
As the years passed, the hotel went through many incarnations.
For a time the building housed a bank, later it served as a rooming
house. During the Second World War the Langham was used as
internment housing for approximately 80 Canadians of Japanese
descent. Afer the war the building was owned by longtime Kaslo
resident Tomio Baba, who used the bar area as a boat works. He
built fshing boats that were shipped by barge and then by rail to
the coast to serve in the fshing feet.
By 1974 the building was in disrepair and the fre department of-
fered to burn the building down as practice for the frefghters. A
group of energetic young people had another vision a cultural
centre. Tey believed the old hotel was essentially sound and could
be restored. Tey bought the building and replaced the old cedar
shakes on the roof. Te Langham Cultural Society was formed and
afer much hard work and fundraising, they succeeded in renovat-
ing the entire building. A new era had begun for the Langham.
Today, the Langham houses galleries, studios and of ces, an in-
timate theatre space and the Japanese Canadian Museum. During
the year the public can view a variety of art shows in the galleries,
attend live theatre, music and flm in the theatre, come to or rent
the Langham for community events, or participate in workshops
covering a wide spectrum of disciplines.
Te self-guided tour of the Japanese Canadian Museum boasts a
series of photographs and writings on the walls of the stairwells and
the hallways of the Langham building. Tere are some newly in-
stalled sound stations where you can hear the authentic voices of
internees. On the third foor there is also a re-creation of the living
quarters of a family of Nisei (Canadian citizens of Japanese descent);
a snap shot of what it must have been like to live in internal exile in
ones own country. Te Japanese Canadian Museum was opened on
May 23, 1993 and dedicated to the Japanese Canadians, their cour-
age under adversity and their ability to overcome injustice.
Langham Gallery hours are Tursday through Sunday, 14 pm. Te
Japanese Canadian museum is open Sunday to Friday from 9 am to
5 pm, and Saturdays whenever the door is opened by volunteers or
tenants. For more information call 250-353-2661 or email langham@
netidea.com, or you can go to their website www.thelangham.ca
The Kootenay Star Museum
In the 1890s, the Kootenays were af icted with townsite fever.
Every mining claim or prospect had the potential to become a
thriving metropolis. As mushrooms spring up overnight, so did
the tent cities and makeshif housing of the Kootenays at the be-
ginning of the boom. Te frst major challenge, which was over-
come in the most perilous fashion, was transportation.
Te Kootenay Star Museum has displays illustrating Kaslos tur-
bulent history and its absolute determination to survive. Visit the
museum and be immersed in a time when fortunes were made
and squandered in a day. Celebrate Kaslos rich mining heritage,
its dangers, hardships, toils and rewards. Here with a little im-
agination, one can detonate ones own blast from the past!
While the days of the narrow gauge railway are gone, with the
new technologies, exploring the Valley of the Ghosts has never
been safer. Hikers can retrace the footsteps of such notable pros-
pectors as Andrew Jardine, Carpenter, Seaton, and the Noble
Five outft, and explore the famous mine sites and abandoned
rail lines, the rawhide trails and relics of aerial tramlines. Find
out about these pioneers and their claims at the Kootenay Star
Museum. Te museum also houses many artifacts from the for-
est industry that to this day is an economic mainstay.
In the front of the museum you will fnd Teresas, a unique cof-
fee shop which serves homemade delectables, soup, sandwiches,
espresso cofees and ice-cream. Truly a place to enjoy treats and
past times!

May Days
Kaslo always has a party on May Daysits a Kaslovian trad-
ition! Come and celebrate with the villagers the spring festival
that they have kept alive, without missing a single year, since
1892. Kaslo is the place to be on the Victoria Day long week-
end, this year, May 18 20.
In the old days the sternwheelers ran excursion trips from Nel-
son and stopped to pick up revellers at every point along the
way, while others arrived in every type of boat and convey-
ance, flling the streets of Kaslo with miners, prospectors and
their families. Te main events of May Days back then were a
horse race down Front Street, with prizes as high as $250, and
a unique Prospectors Race. Prospectors would line up on the
street with all their camping equipment; during the race, they
had to pitch their tents, light a campfre, set up their cooking
equipment, mix bannock and cook it! At todays celebration
the prospectors are few and far between, but the fun and com-
petition continues.
Our modern May Days celebration may seem more sedate,
but dont be fooled. Logger Sports, now two whole days, is a
ruthless competition for prizes and glory. Log burling always
rolls on with cheers and jeers. Te Slo-Pitch tournament con-
tinues to bring stif competition from miles around, the Rid-
ing Club Horse Show gives cowboys and cowgirls a chance to
show their stuf. On Sunday, take a walk down Front Street
and enjoy the annual ShownShine car show and chat with the
proud owners of these unique vehicles. Tere is live music in
the park all weekend, plenty of craf and food vendors, and lots
of fun challenges for kids like the wheelbarrow, three-legged
and egg-in-spoon races.
Monday usually starts with a pancake breakfast at the Legion hall
and the Garden Festival. Just before noon the crowd starts to fll
the sidewalks on Front Street, excitement building as the march-
ing band musicians and the bagpipers can be heard tuning up.
Afer the parade ends, everyone heads down to Vimy Park to
watch the children perform the May Pole dance. Children have
danced around the May Pole to celebrate the arrival of spring
every year in Kaslo since 1923. Many parents and grandparents,
as they watch their little ones, recall the days when they too
danced with ribbons in their hand and a Celtic tune in their ears.
Tere are activities for everyone to enjoy at the Kaslo May
Days festival, so plan to be here on the May long weekend,
May 18 20. Celebrate the season!
Amazing Feats of Skill and Daring
Logger Sports has become one of the main events at the annual
Kaslo May Days Celebration. Te venue is the shore of beauti-
ful Kootenay Lake with its gorgeous backdrop of the Purcell
Mountain Range. Competitors come from across Canada and
the United States to vie for big prize money and the oppor-
tunity to show of the fnely honed skills that distinguish their
sport from all other sporting traditions.
Every year on the Victoria Day long weekend spectators are
thrilled by Canadian championship events such as tree climbing,
log rolling, axe throwing and springboard chopping to name a few.
Logger Sports is run by volunteers and is sponsored by local
businesses, groups and individuals. Te 2013 show has been
super-sized into a two-day event, which will be held on Sat-
urday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19 from 11:30 am to 4:00 pm.

A Paddlers Paradise
Kootenay Lake, a silvery ribbon of water stretching 120 kilo-
metres from north to south, with a westward pointing arm, is
a magnifcent playground for boaters and water lovers of all
kinds. Tere is ample opportunity for paddling, sailing, fshing,
swimming, scuba diving or just dipping your toes and collecting
pretty smooth stones. Beaches are plentiful and diverse, some
accessible by car, and still more by boat or a good days hike.
Relatively unused by power boaters, the lake ofers unmatched
solitude for paddling along its ancient rocky shores, where the
only sound youll hear is nature and the swoosh
of your paddle.
Kayakers and canoeists will discover nature as
never before. Mergansers, loons, blue herons
and many other beautiful species of waterfowl
watch your passing as you paddle in the shad-
ow of the Selkirk and Purcell mountain ranges.
As the calm serenity of the lake ofen gives
way to some unpredictable winds in the early
afernoons, crossing the lake by kayak or canoe
should be taken with care or by guided tour for
those less experienced or new to the area. Tere
are a few sheltered bays to be found along the
lake where refuge can be sought in the event
of wilder weather. One beautiful paddling loop
leaves the shores of Kaslo and heads north, passing by land-
marks such as Davis Creek and Lost Ledge Provincial Parks.
For those with more time, bring your camping gear or choose
a multi-day adventure tour from the local kayak outftter and
paddle across the lake to a choice of pristine and remote camp-
sites, where a short hike inland can reveal a triple waterfall, old
growth forest or a prehistoric inland lake. Guided sea kayaking
tours, lessons and equipment rentals including stand-up paddle
(SUP) boards are available at Kaslo Kayaking: Call 250-353-1925
or visit www.kaslokayaking.com

Fishing Fun!
Come to Kaslo for some of the best fshing you will fnd any-
where on this planet. Bring your own boat, or charter a boat
and a guide to take you out for a day on the lake. Tere are also
many small mountain lakes in the area, accessible by trail or
forest service roads, where you can enjoy some peaceful and
private fshing. If you only have an hour, there is good fshing
right of the shore of Kootenay Lake at the river mouths. Fish
for world class Gerrard rainbows, beautiful Dolly Varden and
bountiful kokanee, all in a pristine setting. No matter the season
there is always some fshing to be had. You can get your fshing
licence and lots of information (and fsh tales) at Barrens Sport
Shop and Woodbury Resort. Both Barren and Woodbury have
a great variety of tackle to complete your Kootenay kit. Grab
your gear and go fshing you might just catch dinner.
Golf and Enjoy the View!
Its hard to keep your focus on the ball at the Kaslo Golf Club.
Tere is a spectacular view at each of the nine holes, no mat-
ter which way you turn. Te course has rolling hills, expertly
conditioned grass greens and well-manicured fairways. Sand in
the bunkers is carefully maintained. Tere is a picturesque water
hazard adjacent to the 9th green that has a waterfall and an ac-
curate scale model of the SS Moyie. Te club also has a driv-
ing net and a practice green. Te new clubhouse features a fully
licensed restaurant with a varied menu, specials and take-out.
Te food is always fresh and made from scratch.
Dine inside or on the covered patio where you
can relax and enjoy the view. Wildlife sight-
ings on the course are not unusual, so be sure
to bring your camera. Te clubhouse is open
from April to October, dependent on seasonal
weather.
At the Kaslo Golf Club you do not usually have
to pre-book tee times come when you want to
play, register and start in order of arrival. Tere
are rental clubs and pull and power carts. and
motorcyclists can get free club rentals.
Whether you are an experienced golfer or a be-
ginner, there are enough nuances of play to keep
you coming back to enjoy the course. Fore!
Houseboating on Kootenay Lake
Experience Kootenay Lake like never before on a houseboat
from Kaslo Shipyards. As captain and crew, you decide how busy
or relaxing you want your holiday to be. Tese houseboats have a
unique design that can withstand the demands of a lake the size
of the Kootenay and are furnished with a spacious wheelhouse,
full galley, bathroom and sleeping facilities for four, six or eight
people. Visit the feet of ce on Front Street or www.kasloship
yard.com for more information about their ships and rates.
Kaslo sk8Park!
Want to see the kids in action? Come down to the waterfront,
opposite the ball park in Vimy Park, to see the most scenic skate
park anywhere and watch the skaters as they execute an ollie,
a blunt slide or kick fip. From bikes to skateboards, the kids
ride them all at the park. All ages participate, and it is great sum-
mer entertainment for riders and watchers alike.
Tennis
Kaslo has two courts, just south of town near the Rec Complex.
(See pg. 23). You can get a key and play for a day or buy a mem-
bership for reasonable rates at the Kaslo Motel right in town.

Hikes and Bikes
The Kaslo area has many fantastic hiking and biking trails
for all levels of ability. Information about the following trails
will gladly be provided at the Visitor Centre or Kootenay
Mountain Sports. Drop in to either place on Front Street.
Mount Buchanan Lookout
Te Buchanan Lookout is a high elevation day-use site. It fea-
tures a refurbished forest fre watch tower. Tis is a great spot
for family oriented outings; views are spectacular (like the one
on our front cover and above, lef) and fowers are lovely in
season. Tere is also a 2 km loop trail below the lookout that
provides access to viewpoints on the rock blufs.
From Kaslo, head west towards New Denver on Highway 31A
for 10 km to the Blue Ridge Forest Service Road, then follow
the signs. Follow the main road for 11.9 km to the lookout,
staying right at the 7.0 km junction. Tis road can be driven
in a high-clearance 2wd vehicle if the conditions are dry but
youre always better of with a 4wd sport utility or pickup.
Wagon Road
Tis trail begins at the top of Zwicky Road and continues for
28 kms all the way to Fish Lake. Te majority of this trail is
wide and has gradual incremental elevation gains. If you do
not want to start at the beginning of the trail, this historical
old highway and old K&S Railway bed can be accessed from a
variety of places along the Highway 31A. Afer Fish Lake the
trail crosses the highway and continues all the way to Sandon.
Te Wagon Road is a wonderful trail to run, walk, mountain
bike, snowshoe or cross country ski along, and is designated an
all uses trail. As such, ATV and snowmobile enthusiasts may
also use the trail, with caution. Te Kaslo to Sandon Rails to
Trails Society manages the Wagon Road trail. Te long-term
vision of the society is to create a trail all the way from Kaslo to
Nakusp, involving the Slocan Valley, New Denver and Nakusp
trail societies.
Buchanan Fire Access Trail
Tis trail can also be accessed from Hwy 31, a kilometre north
of downtown Kaslo. You will fnd a parking area just of the
highway next to the truck brake-check pullout. If you access
it from this point you eliminate the elevation gain required
by hiking up via the Lookout trail. As you continue along this
forested trail, it will break out to some viewpoints high above
Kootenay Lake. Tis trail can be travelled all the way to Te
Monster and the Wagon Road. Another way to get to the Bu-
chanan trail is to head towards New Denver from Kaslo, along
Highway 31A. Get to it via the Wagon Road which connects
with the highway at 3 km, 5 km and 10 km west of Kaslo.
Wardner Street Lookout
Tis popular trail is referred to by locals as the Viewpoint.
Te forest trail leads to a ridge with a beautiful view of Kaslo
and Kootenay Lake. It is fairly steep with switchbacks, and the
elevation gain from the start of the trail to the viewpoint is ap-
proximately 100 metres. Te trail head is located on Wardner
Street in Kaslo, see the map on page 23. Afer the viewpoint you
can continue up and head west on the Connector, that takes
you to the Buchanan Fire Access trail, which is an additional
250 metre (approximate) climb.
Kaslo River Trail
If you are interested in a jaunt in town, the Kaslo River Trails
are just the thing. Te Kaslo Trailblazers Society has developed
a network of trails along the north and south sides of the river.
Te north side trail is wheelchair and bicycle accessible, and is
perfect for a leisurely walk to the covered bridge (photo below).
On the south side of the river there are fve short trails that have
signage: Spruce, Birch, Hemlock, Cedar and Yew. Tese loop
back to the South Kaslo River Trail or lead up the Kaslo Air-
strip. In 2012 the Kaslo Trailblazers Society volunteered many
hours to open up the Kaslo River South extension trail. Tis
forest trail follows the Kaslo River for about 3 kms. You will
fnd a few benches in the frst kilometre of the trail afer the
covered bridge. In the springtime these trails may be fooded
as they are adjacent to the river. Afer 2.5 km of travelling west
and beside the river the trail will wind upwards (south) to the
Airstrip. Please note: do not cross the pavement on the airstrip,
use trails at either end of the pavement. See map pg. 22-23.
Kaslo Bay and Water Street Trail
A lovely stroll, this lower Kaslo trail starts in Kaslo Bay Park
and ends at the 4th Street (technically Hwy 31) bridge which
crosses over the Kaslo River. A few short sections loop up to
the road, then back down to the waters edge. Te walk is about
2 km in length and gives access to the wonderful beaches that
skirt the village. See map pg. 22-23

swif fying slopes. Te Kaslo Trail Alliance is developing trails on
Mount Buchanan (Bucky) for both winter and summer use. Te
Kaslo Golf Course provides a gentle cross country ski venue, and
is great for snowshoeing and sledding.
Snowmobiling is an important pastime here. Tere are many
logging and mining roads in the high country for snowmobil-
ers of all levels of experience and hundreds of miles of trails.
Check with the locals or get more information at www.bcsf.org
(BC Snowmobile Association).
Winter usually brings at least one safe opportunity for outdoor
skating on Mirror Lake. Tere is nothing like a heated game of
shinny between all ages, or the indescribable serenity of just skating
at dusk on a lake in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Kaslo Curling
Did you know that it was Scots miners who brought the game
of curling to the interior of BC toward the end of the nine-
teenth century? It is believed that the frst curling game in
Kaslo was in 1893. Tat frst club applied for af liation with the
Royal Caledonian Curling Club in 1895 and between then and
1906, Golden, Sandon, Nelson, Rossland, Greenwood, Trout
Lake and Cranbrook joined the Kootenay Curling Association.
Curling has been a favourite pastime in Kaslo ever since!
Te Kaslo Curling Club has a mens, womens and mixed league,
as well as junior programs and a drop-in night. Tere is an ac-
tive social club, and they welcome visitors and newcomers to
the sport.
Ice Fishing
Fish and Bear lakes, northwest of Kaslo on Highway 31A, usu-
ally freeze over in winter, making ice fshing possible and a day
on the little lakes a popular excursion for many Kaslo families.
If you get lucky, youll be cooking your catch over a campfre on
the shore. Winters are great in Kaslo.
Kaslo Ice
Te Kaslo and District Arena is a jewel that shines large and
bright in our small community. Tis asset was built by com-
munity efort in 1975, with money, materials and labour that
were all donated. Te village and the regional government both
support the Complex. Te Complex includes an ice rink and
two sheets of curling ice. Both parts of the facility have been
and are operated by volunteer community groups or societies.
Apart from the school gym, the curling rink and the ice rink
are the main focal point of indoor winter recreation opportun-
ities for Kaslo Village and area.
Te Arena Complex supports public skating, club hockey and
organized youth minor hockey. In the city, members of the
public, no matter what age, have to accept ice times that are
either very early in the morning or late at night; not so here.
Adult club hockey occurs shortly afer work, we even have the
up-the-lake hippy hockey group which plays every Sunday at
4:15 pm, immediately afer public skating. Te society which
manages the arena always encourages new activities and begin-
ner hockey players.
When the mills were operating and fnancial times were better,
the society had bi-annual fundraising activities. In the last sev-
eral years successful grant applications have been instrumental
in the completion of necessary upgrades to the ice plants and
other infrastructure.
Tere is always room for more participants in the various ac-
tivities that happen at the rink. It is a prized amenity for our
area; it provides recreation, community and social activities,
and pride. We are always trying to make it better; it is one of
the reasons many of us live here.
Kaslo Area Cat Skiing & Heli-Skiing
Just north of Kaslo, surrounded by majestic peaks and awe-
inspiring valleys, gorges and glaciers, you can experiencesome
of the best cat skiing and heli skiing in the world!
Selkirk Wilderness Skiings operating area combines amazing
terrain and an abundance of deep dry snow. Guests can expect
to ski (and ride) over 80,000 vertical feet of untracked powder.
Prepare to be spoiled by your friendly hosts who ensure you
have fantastic food and accommodation, great company and
the very best cat skiing experience you will ever have.

Ainsworth Hot Springs
Ainsworth Hot Springs is a 20 km drive south of Kaslo on Hwy
31. Te village is set into the mountainside overlooking Koote-
nay Lake and the spectacular Purcell Mountains.
Many early stories of the Kootenays mention the hot springs.
Long ago the native Indians came up to Kootenay Lake in the
late summers for the kokanee salmon run. Tis timing co-
incides with the ripening of huckleberries. It is easy to picture
Kootenay Lakes original people enjoying a soothing soak in the
hot springs afer spending their days fshing and scrambling
around the hills picking berries.
In 1882 George Ainsworth of Portland, Oregon, brought his
business of transportation and mining exploration to the area.
He applied for a Crown Grant for the townsite, which then was
known as Hot Springs Camp. He renamed the site Ainsworth
in honour of his family. From 1884, the mountains above were
alive with mining activity; prospectors had staked nearly every
inch of ground from the townsite to the glacial summits. By
1889, several mines were in operation among them the Num-
ber One, Skyline, Little Donald, and Krao.
During the boom years, the hot springs were not high among
the miners priorities; they were far too busy to even think
about relaxing. It wasnt until the 1920s, when the town was
starting to decline as a mining centre, that an efort was made
to develop the neglected natural resource. Te resident mining
company decided to improve the site, primarily for the enjoy-
ment of their workers. By the time the pool and caves were fn-
ished in the early 1930s the efects of the Great Depression were
being felt all over the continent. During this decade the pool
was open 24 hours a day, and a swim was 10 cents.
Te suferings of the small community over the next decades
had a lot to do with its isolation. It was dif cult to get there
roads were not much more than goat tracks and the stern-
wheelers weighed anchor at the wharf less and less ofen afer
the miners had forsaken their claims. Te population declined
to the current number of less than 100 permanent residents.
Today, the Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort is developed around
the original, natural hot springs and is open year round. It fea-
tures three odourless pools, a 150 foot horseshoe-shaped cave,
the main lounging pool and a stream-fed cold plunge. Te
frst class hotel was renovated inside and out in 2012. Enjoy
the Springs Dining Room, a great place that has a friendly,
professional staf and a menu to interest the palate of the most
discerning diner as well as folks hungry for comfort foods.
Woodbury Resort
To get here, travel south approximately 13.5 km from Kaslo.
Like most places in the Kootenays, Woodbury began as a min-
ing camp, servicing the miners who worked in the local mines,
such as the King Solomon, and nearby Grant and General
mines.
Today, Woodburys fortune lies with its breathtaking location
on Kootenay Lake. Woodbury Resort and Marina is open all
year; you can rent a boat with or without a guide, and JBs res-
taurant is a must, famous far and wide for its fsh and chips.
Te laid-back atmosphere at JBs Pub, which has live entertain-
ment from time to time, lends itself to story telling lots of fsh
tales and tall tales. Te resort has a campground and RV park,
chalets and motel units to rent, a recreation hall with daily ac-
tivities for visitors, and access to over 50 km of trails for hikers
and ATVers and snowmobilers.
Fishing is excellent and at its best in fall and winter. Te resort
sponsors a Dolly Tournament at Easter and a Rainbow Tourna-
ment at Tanksgiving, the second Monday in October. Fisher-
men come from all over to participate in these derbies.
Woodbury is a gateway to Kokanee Glacier Park and the Silver-
spray cabin. In summer you would access the park by driving
up Woodbury Creek forestry road for 13 kilometres to the trail-
head. It is advisable to check with the Forest Service (250-825-
1100) or the people in the know at Woodbury Resort regarding
forestry road conditions.

Kaslo & Area Guide 2013 29
Theres still more to see...

A scenic drive
north of Kaslo
will bring you
to the Lardeau
Valley. Tere
you will fnd the
charming com-
munities of Lar-
deau, Cooper
Creek, Meadow
Creek, Howser,
Argenta and
Johnsons Land-
ing. Each of
these commun-
ities has unique
qualities that
will appeal to the
adventurous at
heart. Here you
can experience
year round recreation in one of the most spectacular scenic
areas anywhere.
Lardeau, originally spelled Lardo, is a small unincorporated
community and former mining town near the north end of
Kootenay Lake. Situated in the centre of what was once known
as the Lardeau Country, the town had ambitions of becoming
a great city. Tis did not happen, and today the community is
basically a retirement/recreation and tourist area. Te townsite
is right on the shore of Kootenay Lake, and provides easy access
to all water sports. Tis end of the lake ofers great opportun-
ities for kayaking.
Just before you come to Cooper Creek, if you turn right, you
can visit the communities of Argenta and Johnsons Landing.
Tere are some very self-suf cient folk living there. Te name
Johnsons Landing comes from one of the frst settlers, a Swede
named Algot Johnson. In the early 1900s Johnson cleared land
for farming, built a log cabin and planted an orchard. During
those times there were few roads and the area was serviced by
paddlewheel steamers, such as the Moyie, and so it came to be
known as Johnsons Landing.
Today the renowned Fry Creek Trail attracts people from all over
the world. Te trail is suitable for families wanting to take a day
hike or for experienced hikers wishing to spend time going far-
ther up the Fry Creek Canyon into the Purcell Wilderness Con-
servancy. For the past ten years this area has also been the home
of the Johnsons Landing Retreat Center, which ofers workshops,
retreats and personal get-a-ways in this serene setting. For more
information visit www.JohnsonsLandingRetreat.bc.ca
Once the home of Meadow Creek Cedar mill, Cooper Creek
is now basically a cluster of homes at the gateway to some very
remote and spectacular hiking country. Tere is a gas station,
which has very basic foodstufs and a small selection of con-
venience items.
Continue north on Highway 31 and you will reach Mead-
ow Creek. Te surrounding countryside is made up mostly
of farmland that has been formed from the deposits laid
down by the Duncan and Lardeau Rivers. Te slow-moving
Meadow Creek meanders through this small community.
In the far background, the Selkirk and Purcell mountain ranges
rise very steeply to form jagged peaks. Te main centre of
Meadow Creek consists of the Meadow Creek Store and Drif-
ers Restaurant. Te store has local produce and groceries, con-
tains the post of ce and liquor store, and sells fuel.
A little north of the town centre, just past the Lardeau Valley
Community Hall, is a small museum dedicated to local history.
It is open during July and August or by appointment, email mu-
seum.lvhs@gmail.com.
A little further north you will come to Howser Station Road,
which will take you to Howser. Tis small rural community is
situated on the west side near the south end of Duncan Lake. At
one time, Howser was a booming city, with promise of fortunes
being made in gold mining. Today there are only a few homes
on acreages, a boat launch, great wild beaches and swimming
in the clear and relatively warm (compared to Kootenay Lake)
waters of Duncan Lake.
Te opportunities for hiking abound in the Lardeau Valley. To
get detailed information and updates on trail conditions, stop
by the Visitor Centre at the SS Moyie in Kaslo. Be aware that to
truly discover the wonders of this valley, you will need at least a
pickup or preferably a four wheel drive vehicle. It is a good idea
to check with the local merchants for travel information such
as road closures and the presence of active logging operations
on the back country roads.

Duncan Dam
Follow the signs on Highway 31 north of Meadow Creek to
Duncan Dam. It was the frst of the three Columbia River Treaty
dams to be built in the Canadian section of the Columbia River
Basin. Te dam was completed in 1967, a 40 metre earthfll dam
with no power generation facilities. It was designed to control
the fow of water from the Duncan River into Kootenay Lake.
As the dam neared completion, the valley bottom was
cleared of large trees, the original residents of the com-
munity of Howser displaced, and some farms and or-
chards were fooded. When the water began to rise and fll
the new reservoir, the original Duncan Lake increased in
size from 25 km to 45 km in length. Water in the reservoir
fuctuates seasonally by as much as 30 metres in eleva-
tion. When the water is low in winter and early spring,
you can still see traces of the prior settlement and the
ghostly stumps of the trees.
Meadow Creek Spawning Channel
Sometimes its okay to see red. Te fashing bright red of
thousands upon thousands of spawning kokanee that is.
Tis is the sight to behold at the Meadow Creek spawn-
ing channel from late August to early October.
Te Meadow Creek spawning channel was constructed
in 1967 with BC Hydro funds and was the worlds
largest at the time. Te channel is 3.3 km long by 12
metres wide; it supports a total of up to 250,000 spawn-
ing kokanee. 10 15 million fry are produced annually
with a mean egg-to-fry survival rate of 45%.
Te spawning channel is open to the public through-
out the spawning season, unless there is unusually
high bear activity. Walkways and an interpretive site
allow visitors the opportunity to learn about this
wonder of nature. It is located 4 km north of Meadow
Creek of Highway 31.
Fry Creek Canyon Trail
Fry Creek Canyon is a great place for a day hike
for locals and visitors alike. Access by vehicle is via
Johnsons Landing. Just keep following the main road until you
come to the trailhead signs. Tere is parking at the trail head.
Te trail to the canyon crosses private property and the owners
have granted permission to cross their property. Keeping this
in mind, be responsible while doing so.
Te Fry Creek Trail extends some 12 km up the canyon and
takes you to the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy. Te trail
winds through stands of cedar, hemlock and ponderosa pines
above Kootenay Lake. You will stop ofen and turn around to
admire the splendid views of the creek, the canyon and sur-
rounding peaks. Once you arrive at the canyon, head to the
right and go down the trail to the bridge across the creek. Tis
trail heads down to Kootenay Lake, thus making this trip ac-
cessible by boat if you choose. Te hike to the bridge is a good
initiation to the canyon.
For the more adventurous, the Fry Creek Canyon Trail only
begins once you reach the canyon, just above the bridge. You
need only hike a kilometre or two up the trail to experience the
canyon. Te trail stays to the north side of the creek and was
blasted out of the canyon wall by prospectors hoping to strike
gold. Ofen times you feel suspended over the rushing creek.
It is a long fve kilometres from the trail head to the substantial
cable car across the creek just above the confuence of Fry Creek
and Carney Creek. Give yourselves plenty of time to get there as
there is a tricky rock slide to scramble over on the way. Crossing
using the cable car is also a bit of work as it is quite heavy. Once
across the cable car, the trail fades quickly and the wilderness
closes in. Tis trail is a great introduction for hikers to the rug-
gedness of the Kaslo area. For more information, please visit
www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/purcell/

Bears love to eat the same foods
we do. While vacationing in the
Kootenays, be safe and manage all
garbage and food to avoid attract-
ing bears to your camp or summer
home. Keep and leave your vaca-
tion spot clean so that people after
you dont have bears in the area.
Keep your pets under control at all
times so they dont harass wildlife,
potentially putting you in danger.

zWILDLIFE Viewing z
The sun breaks over the Purcell Mountains, making Kootenay
Lake sparkle like a million diamonds. In the silent mist, a bull
elk scans for predators, preparing to take his herd to drink. An
osprey windsurfs overhead.
Te north end of Kootenay Lake, from Kaslo to Duncan Lake,
has a wide range of habitats. Tese include the vast mountain
forests, valley bottom and intermittent forest wetlands, alpine
meadows, riparian (river and lakeside) areas, even grasslands.
Deer, elk and coyotes are a common sight in all seasons, and
at most elevations. In the spring, summer and fall, grizzly and
black bears roam the forests (and make occasional forays to
town.) Troughout the year, songbirds are plentiful in the Dun-
can and Lardeau Flats. Watching a grizzly snag lunch from the
river is a treat that will make your outing memorable. Around
Meadow Creek there are moose, bears, fsh, waterfowl, and
increasingly, wolves. Between Kaslo to New Denver, there are
beaver ponds along the road. At Fish Lake and Bear Lake there
are waterfowl, and other bird species (and tadpoles in early
summer, dont forget theyre wildlife too!). Te rest stop there
is a perfect place to sit quietly and observe the natural beauty.
Wild animals are on no schedule. Tere are no guarantees that
you will see wildlife, but chances are that if you choose the right
time (dawn and dusk are peak activity), blend in, stay quiet and
have patience, you will be rewarded.
Viewing Ethics
Respect animals and other viewers. Being too close or dis-
turbing animals can be very stressful and dangerous.
Habitat can sufer from human disregard, and in turn, wildlife
will as well. Please stay on trails and pack out what you brought in.
Keep pets leashed and under control.
Stay a safe distance from all wildlife. Use binoculars, scopes,
or telephoto camera lenses to get a better view.
Animals with young are highly susceptible to stress, and can
be very aggressive in protecting their babies. If stressed, the par-
ents may abandon their young. If you do fnd what you think
are abandoned animals, leave them alone and step back. Te
parents are probably very close by. By retreating, you are not
only helping save the wildlife, but yourself as well. Defensive
mothers can pose a very great threat to humans.
Safety For You, Safety For Our Wildlife
During all seasons, wildlife such as deer, elk, moose and bear
come down to the valley bottoms. Tey tend to walk on or
across the roads, causing much damage to vehicles and death
or injury to the animals. Please watch for animals on the road,
particularly at, but not limited to, dawn and dusk.
Always reduce your speed in areas where the wildlife caution
signs are posted. Tese signs are placed in areas where there
has been a high incidence of sightings and, unfortunately, col-
lisions. Slowing down is especially important at dawn and at
dusk or during the night (make sure that your headlights are
clean and aligned), or while travelling on a road that follows a
water source. Just reducing your speed by 20 km will give you
an extra 30 metres for braking. Slowing down and braking is
almost always a safer approach than swerving.
To warn other motorists of wildlife on or near the road and
reduce the potential for collision, drivers can briefy fash their
headlights. Tis is a common practice for warning of road haz-
ards in this area. Tank you for taking care to help protect our
wildlife.
Bear Safety
At all times, remember you are in bear country here. Grizzly
and black bears are very much at home in Kaslo and area. Please
be familiar with bear safety techniques to ensure that no harm
comes to either bears or humans in our mutual habitat. For
more information on how to best protect yourself and the bears,
check out the Bear Aware website at www.bearaware.bc.ca

Like stones rolling down the
riverbed in springtime, mak-
ing a rumble while on their way
to creating something new, the
creative nature of so many Kaslo and area residents rubs of on
virtually everybody. Original artwork, a lively arts scene and an
audible rumble during some key weekends in the year is created.
What is it about this community that attracts such a great num-
ber of creative people? Is it the scenery? Is it the sense of accept-
ance felt here? Is it the support of the community?
Whatever the answer, Kaslo has attracted all kinds of art-
ists and artisans. Tere are portrait painters, landscape artists,
silversmiths, candlemakers, sculptors, woodworkers, potters, felt
crafers, soap makers, musicians and just about any other cre-
ative person, including a duct tape jewellery maker.
Check out the numerous shops
and restaurants which have lo-
cal work displayed on the walls.
Tere are galleries that show-
case artists during the whole year, and some studios where you
can watch the artists at their work. Te North Kootenay Lake
Arts & Heritage Council works tirelessly to promote local artists.
Te Council arranges an annual Artwalk in the downtown area,
manages the Kaslo Saturday Market wherein local crafers can
display and sell their wares, holds the annual Salon of the Arts
and silent auction featuring the work of North Kootenay Lake
artists and supports the Columbia Basin Culture Tour.
With such a variety of talented people, Kaslo is proud of its ex-
tensive arts scene. Te following pages will introduce you to
some of them.
