Spring brings excitement, possibility, and all kinds of colour to Kootenay Lake. Steep mountain valleys are alive with the spring runoff. Snow capped peaks contrast with deep green forests and dark blue waters. Lilacs, cherry blossoms, and all kinds of leafy trees and gardens colour the region’s waterfront towns. Patios and early season hiking and mountain biking trails open, while lightly trafficked roads reward cyclists. Frequent summer-like temperatures and long days make spring a rewarding (and quiet) time to visit.
