Apple Tree Pools

To regulate our hydroelectric power system, excess energy is used to constantly heat a tank of clean spring water. This hot water is flowing through a cascading series of pools, each offering a variety of extra hot water.

Swimming Pool

Many guests say this is their favorite swimming pool in the world. The constant flow of fresh spring water keeps it clean, allowing a chlorine-free swimming and diving area. Although this is the "coolest" pool at Valley View, it remains comfortably warm all night.

Temperatures range from the mid-80's in winter to about 90°F in summer.
