The focal point of the Banff Springs Hotel Spa is the pool area. A central warm pool is filled with mineral water.

Around the main pool are three smaller ponds, all indoors. Each with its own waterfall. You are encouraged to progress through these ponds at your leisure. These pools at the Willow Stream Spa start very warm....They end with a rather cool third pool. Very relaxing and quite energizing as well!!!
In any weather, the outdoor hot pool at the Banff Springs Hotel Spa is a treat.
