FAIRMONT HOT SPRINGS, B.C. — Guests of the B.C.-based Fairmont Hot Springs Resort are out of harm’s way following a recent natural catastrophe.
“Everyone at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort, and in the town of Fairmont Hot Springs, is safe and well after a debris flow in the late afternoon, July 15. The torrent of water from high in the mountains carried large rocks and trees with it and destroyed much in its path,” reads a statement from the resort.
According to the Calgary Herald, 600 guests were stranded for hours at the resort. While guests are being encouraged to conserve water after the water at the main lodge was cut briefly, supply has been restored.
Geotechnical experts have examined the site and determined there is no risk of further debris flow or landslides. The economic impact of the torrent has yet to be determined.
The resort is offering guests a full refund if their booking has been affected by the slide.
