WATCH: Hot Springs Soak to Pillow Skiing Stoke

Mark Abma and co. explore the natural wonders of the Canadian Kootenays

Leave it up to a group of Canadians to find the link between thermal hot springs and pillow skiing.

Produced by the bohemian instincts of Mark Abma, “The Scenic Route” features Abma, Chris Rubens, and Dana Flahr setting up camp near hot springs and prime pillow skiing terrain in Interior B.C. To elucidate the powers and healing effects of natural springs, geologist Glenn Woodsworth and First Nations Vern Shanoss explain the origin and benefits, linking the transformative powers of skiing and natural springs through the lifecycle of water.

So instead of a hot tub outside the condo at the base of the ski area, Abma and crew discover their own version of apres near quintessential B.C. pillows.
