Skookumchuck Hot Springs

This page is about natural hot spring near the First Nations community of Skatin 50 kilometres south of Pemberton Pemberton, British Columbia. For the town and associated rapids in the East Kootenay see Skookumchuck, British Columbia. For other uses see Skookumchuck. Official New Name is reverting to the traditional Pre-Colonial / Pre-Columbian Name: Tsek Hot Spring or T'sek Hot Spring; the former names are Saint Agnes Well & "Skookumchuck Hot Springs" near the First Nation community of Skookumchuck and more renamed /reverted to traditional name of Skatin is on the historic Harrison Lillooet Gold Rush trail in the Lillooet River valley, south of Lillooet Lake, in British Columbia, Canada. The hot springs themselves, named Tsek in the St'at'imcets language were on private property purchased from "Goodwin Purcell" family by the Trethewey family after his death in the 1909 and acquired by the Government of Canada in 2008 to be held in trust for the local aboriginal people until a potential treaty settlement.

Tsek Hot Springs, formally known as Skookumchuck Hot Springs was known as Saint Agnes Well during the days of the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush and the Douglas Road, along which it is located, while Harrison Hot Springs farther south was known as St. Alice's Well. Near the community named Skookumchuck -now reverted & renamed Skatin were road houses known as 18 Mile House or 20 Mile House, a reference to its distance from Port Douglas, at the Douglas Road's commencement at the head of Harrison Lake. An Oblate mission was established in the 1860s and, under direction of the priests, the native community began to build a village at Skookumchuck, about 4 kilometres south of the hot springs; as their community became more settled, the Stl'itl'imx people built a striking Carpenter Gothic/ Wood Gothic church in 1908, designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1981, remains standing and in use today, the Church of the Holy Cross. A prominent feature are blue glass windows; the hot springs are managed by members of the Skatin community.

Many local families still use the hot springs, visitors are asked to respect local family values, be discreet in language and behaviour, to wait until children have finished bathing before entering the hot tubs. Road improved most of the way. In the Spring of 2015 dirt In-SHUCK-ch Forest Service Road / FSR was widened from 1 to 1 1/2 lanes to 2 lanes + two 1/2 lane shoulders for the whole length of Lillooet Lake; the Last section is still rough.
