If the mountain vistas weren't relaxing enough, a nordic spa is set to open soon in Kananaskis Country, bringing a new twist on the hot-warm-cold-rest-repeat Scandinavian wellness practice.

Along with several saunas and steam rooms, Kananaskis Nordic Spa will feature three outdoor pools heated to different temperatures. Plans call for meditation and massage facilities to be added.
