About Miette Hot Springs, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

The Mietter Hot Springs pool was built in 1919 by striking coal miners with logs and moss. As it became extremely popular with the local mining community of Pocohontas, a road and aqua court was constructed by 1938. Unstable rocks in surrounding areas and aging structure led to the closing of the aqua court in 1986. The current facility is located one km from the abandoned pool site.

The mineral water rich in sulfate, calcium and potassium is heated by the earth’s crush and the spring water has an average temperature of 54° C. The water is quality tested regularly and chlorine is added as part of health regulations. The water is cooled to a temperature between 37 ° C and 40 ° C. UnlikeBanff Upper Hot Springs, the hot springs flow has not stopped till date. The Miette Hot Springs consists of 2 large hot pools and two cooler pools.
